NYC Food Tour: Flushing, Queens, NYC’s “Other Chinatown”, Saturday, Nov. 2nd, 2019

Posted by Rick Bedrosian

Although (like the rest of this magnificent borough) ethnic diversity exists in Flushing, there are many more Chinese-Americans living in and around Flushing, Queens than in Manhattan’s Chinatown! Flushing Chinatown is the world’s largest and one of the fastest growing Chinatowns in the world. Flushing has also been called the “Chinese Times Square” and the “Chinese Manhattan”. As you can imagine, the Chinese food in Flushing, Queens is as authentic as you can get outside of China. Your eyes, ears and taste buds will be totally blown away in Flushing!

Explore the gastronomical wonders of Flushing, Queens, with traveler and TV host Rick Bedrosian, leader of the internationally renowned Celtic-Rock band, Hair Of The Dog and portrayer of George Harrison in the popular Beatlemania show, Hey Jude. Rick has been to Flushing dozens of times and he’s racked up a long list of dynamite dining destinations. Your walking tour includes round trip transportation from the Capital District to NYC, Rick’s guidance throughout the tour, two NY Subway rides (one from and one back to Manhattan) and delicious Chinese food at at least 5 different locations. This is not a series of “tastings”. This is serious eating so bring a hearty appetite because all food is included! Drinks are at your own expense.
