It is so funny how you live somewhere but don’t know wht you are missing until you move. I lived in Flushing while going to Columbia and I was not a bit into exploring, all I wanted to do was hit my bed. Anyhoo, my old roomie introduced me to the folks that I file my taxes with, so I always make the hr long trip to file my taxes, eat, and shop of course. Did I mention that it is the real China Town?
So, we went to file our taxes earlier this week, check out our day in Flushing and make sure Niyi and I take you there when you come visi.
So, we started off filing our taxes and nothing exciting there…in fact I owe the city some money
We plan our trip strategically, first food! 25 bucks for hot pot and drinks..and it includes tax and tips baby!
So, you get the menu and get to pick whatever you want. Niyi and usually get spinach, flat noddles, beef, golden mushrooms and black mushrooms. Of course you can order crabs, chicken, lamb, shrimp, corn,everything pretty much. We love it because everything is fresh and raw (which is why I go there to shop..more to come).
you place whatever you want in your broth, I like to do noodles and beef on one side and then veggies on another… Ignore my look, if you know me, then we know I have an ongoing love affair with my t-shirts-that I never iron by the way-
Finally, we get some Chinese pastries. The cakes always bring me back to Big Treat in Nigeria.
Can’t wait to go back 🙂
