Mini Food Tour in Flushing

Started with Golden Shopping Mall at 41-28 Main St. & 41st Rd with the dumplings at the far end when you veer right after entering the mall downstairs. (Sorry, no pic.)

Then got these amazing spicy cumin lamb burger and noodles at Xi’An Famous Foods next door (still at the mall).



We then looked for the skewer street vendor and found him on 41st Ave and Main St. You may choose your skewers to be spicy.



Chicken gizzard and squid.

We crossed Main Street and got duck buns at the mini window of Corner 28. Delish!



Finished off our mini food tour next door at Hot Spot with taro milk tea and shaved ice with watermelon. We each spent less than $15. Cheap!
