2013 Year in Review – The Reviews

Chinese Restaurant Reviews – 2013 2013 was quite the year!!  The Chinese Quest was formed in late February.  Five Jewish guys got together over, what else, Chinese food.  And they argued (that’s how Jews talk) where the best Chinese restaurant was on Long Island.  And you know something?  They couldn’t agree! So, they made a pact.  And formed a Quest. ...

[REVIEW] Uncle Dai’s, Glen Cove, NY

 A Very Mee-rry Christmas! A new Chinese Quest tradition was born this Christmas Eve, as the family Quested, as all good Jews do, to a Chinese Restaurant.  Four Mee’s (unfortunately Gonzi Biao was detained at work — gosh we love his work ethic, but we sure missed his presence!) went to: Uncle Dai’s 26 School Street Glen Cove, NY 11542 ...

The meal starts with the traditional fried noodles on the table, which were quite authentic ...

[REVIEW] Jade King, 376 Willis Ave., Roslyn Heights

Sometimes Expectations Aren’t All That They’re Cracked Up To Be But, then again, sometimes your expectations are a function of your, umm, expectations.  And if your expectations are what you expect from your visit to your local Chinese restaurant, then you will get what you expect.  For those who don’t venture far from home to get a taste of the ...

Next Year in Jerusalem, but First a Stop at Joe’s Shanghai!

The Promised Land! After two very dissappointing restaurants (Kwong Ming & The Orchid), we decided to venture to a place with a very solid reputation. It’s not exactly in Nassau/Suffolk, but nevertheless its still on the “Island of Long”. Joe’s Shanghai is located at 136-21 37th Ave. in Flushing. Well, lets just say: The Christians have their Vatican, The Muslims ...
