After a a couple of month hiatus, in the winter that will seemingly will never end in the newest York City Metropolitan location, the Mee's hit the trail again this evening. Taking specific note of Mee Tsu Yan's delicate intestinal guts, or lack thereof at this time, we all purposely chose a Chinese cafe of the Cantonese variety.
Again search of the best Chinese cafe around we ventured on again across the Nassau edge in to Flushing, NY. At this time we must consider rating Flushing restaurants on a separate level than Long Island restaurants being becoming evident that Flushing restaurants are now occupying several of the top five spots on this Quest to find the best Chinese cafe on all of, umm, Li.
Our destination was:
Foo Kee Seafood Restaurant
136-14 38th Avenue
Flushing, NYC 11354
Our special guests this evening was the most prestigious Mee Har Vee, a global renowned wine connoisseur, or perhaps sommelier, a bon vivant, and an all around good guy. A real mensch, if we met one. A personality. And boy do we realize characters!
Darren was the host. I swear often the guy could have been in vaudeville! And what better way to punch a chord with a Jew than being funny in addition to personable. We were in for an authentic treat (which sure fit, the "B" rating the fact that Board of Health slammed on the restaurant, our intellects at ease).
We eventually left ALL of the ordering to the pup... and we left the wine collection to Mee Har Vee... more on that later.
If Darren (we're not really guaranteed if that's his real identify or a stage name) introduced three appetizers that provided our staple of give up ribs (so so), crispy peking duck (yum-Mee), as well as a crispy chicken dish, all of our meal got off with a great start.
It was followed by Mee Har Vee's firstly five wine selections, identified as "Seven Daughters". Now might be we were six guys, i was a little confused. What was extra daughter doing at all of our table? Then he explained often the Seven daughters represented often the seven different grapes that had been blended in to making this nearly all delicious white wine. There initially were four other wines functioned. Beats me what they ended up called. By then I was... umm, back to the review.
Therefore , after the appetizers settled basically in to our bellies it turned out time for Darren (that seemed to be his name, right? ) to recommend our parmi. There were four or five spectacular possibilities served with some incredible gravies. Nothing spicy. But , incredibly succulent.
