joes-shanghai-flushing

We Thought We Were in China! Our Quest to find the BEST Chinese Restaurant on all of Long Island took us tonight to virgin territories.  Our Crusade crossed the veritable dividing line between Nassau County (“Long Island”), and Queens (New York City) deep in to the heart of Flushing, NY.  We queried various sources, resources, databases, and wiki’s, and concluded ...

Another MEE’s Opinion

Counter Point I would  like to add a personal commentary to my Brother Magnum’s very eloquent description of our most recent Quest to Kwong Ming in Wantagh.  While I am often described as the “silent” Mee, there is sometimes a need to speak up so that a balanced commentary is achieved. Yes, Kwong Ming is not going to go down ...

[REVIEW] Kwong Ming, Wantagh, NY

Highly Anticipated; Totally Deflated What would you think if I told you that at the end of the meal we fought over who would take the leftovers home?  What would you think if I told you that this is the first time we ever had leftovers left over? Enough said? Eh!  That wouldn’t make much of a blog post, would ...

THIS ORCHID HAS WILTED!

A Faded Flower Our latest adventure has taken us to Orchid Restaurant located at 730 Franklin Ave. in Garden City. What a disappointment!! It is very hard to believe, but this restaurant came highly recommended. The place is nicely decorated, it kind of looks like a high end Chinese bro….. By the look of the place, you would think the food ...

[REVIEW] Orchid, Garden City

Faded Bloom Disappointment is all I can say.  I’m going to post lots of pictures, because I don’t have a lot of words to share.  I have been here once before, and the food was good.  This time, we came as Mee’s, and this Mee was disappointed (and as the numerical reviews will attest so were the other Mee’s. Orchid ...

FLUSHING (MEE)TS LEVITTOWN

Fortune Wheel Seafood Resturant Our latest adventure has taken us to Fortune Wheel, located at 3601 Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown. This “Flushing” like restaurant is tucked discreetly between two big box retailers. The meal begins with a Freebie (always a good start). The pickled seaweed with carrots and cabbage was a delicious beginning to what would become a “Hit or Miss” ...

[REVIEW] Fortune Wheel Seafood Restaurant, Levittown

“The King and Mee’s” I must say I got distracted looking for the restaurant tonight.  It was tucked away right past BJ’s Warehouse (bonus Jew Appeal points!!).  I had to call my brother, Yong Joo (who better to ask for directions that the brother we affectionately call “The Wandering Joo”?), and he told me to look past BJ’s (it’s not ...

A Quest On behalf of my cousin (Mee Mi Kee), I am sending out an official request for the name of a CLASSIC Cantonese style restaurant in NYC (Manhattan, but not China Town). He is looking for an old style restaurant that we all grew up on. This place would conjure up images of Sunday night dinners with family. Perhaps it ...

GOING UPSCALE AT PEARL EAST IN MANHASSET

Putting on the Ritz Once you get past the front door, you know you are not in Kansas (or Copiague) anymore. I imagine this is what a restaurant in Hong Kong might look like. Previously, our adventure has taken us to more moderate instituitions. Pearl East is high end Chinese, and sure does look the part. One thing that strikes me everytime ...
