Best Restaurant in Flushing


The deeply spiced flavors of northern Chinese cuisine are on full display at Fu Run Restaurant, and the modest Flushing canteen preaches its gospel with massive platters of mung bean jelly noodles and fall-off-the-bone lamb ribs sporting a crusty coat of cumin, sesame seeds, and chiles. Don’t overlook the intense casseroles, including a stellar, savory stew of lamb meatballs and carrots. Make sure to save room for dessert, which finds your choice of cooked starch (most tables go for taro root) covered in molten sugar, which hardens into caramel after a dip in an accompanying bowl of cold water, creating a thin candy shell.
