Slowly, Canal Street in Manhattan’s Chinatown is filling with tourists and fake Chanel bags, and losing its Chinese authenticity. Many of the Chinese are moving to the “new” Chinatown in Flushing, Queens. It’s cleaner, less crowded, safer, and has better restaurants!
Many New Yorkers have also caught on to the secrets of Flushing. Many food blogs, and even the New York Times have published maps and guides of “where to eat in Flushing.” The options are limitless, and probably the best you can find outside of Asia. I’ve done my fair share of exploring as well, and I can’t get enough! Here’s a little photo tour of some of my favorite places and the popular hand-drawn noodles. Next time you get the chance, take the 7 train all the way to the end and eat in Flushing!
