Best Bean Curd New York 2001 - KB Garden
The lunchtime dim sum action puts Manhattan's Chinatown to shame. Flushing's KB GARDEN is a massive banquet hall adjacent to a hotel, and I've never seen better dim sum wheeled by on metal carts, pristine in its freshness and with more varieties than you're likely to see anywhere else. The homemade soft bean curd is especially sumptuous, ladled wobbling from the crock and faintly sweet in its light broth. After KB, you won't be happy eating dim sum anywhere else.
