Best Flushing Chinese Pig-Out (2008)
Chao Zhou Restaurant
I'm sure it's not p.c., but I do believe that one of the tests of an ethnic restaurant is its diners. Do they look as though they know what the food was like in the old country? The answer to this at Chao Zhou Restaurant is a resounding yes. The food is serious, down-home Chinese and includes such goodies as pork ears in a spicy soy sauce and pork with mustard greens. Cholesterol watchers can indulge in a chile-flecked chicken with ginger and scallion or a country-style chicken with soy. Whatever the selection, one bite and it's clear that diners at this spot revel in their tastes of home.
