Lao Dong Bei Restaurant Review

: Flushing, Queens, home to one of the most dynamic Chinatowns in North America, is a culinary jackpot, especially for lovers of Chinese food. You will not only find the usual suspects --- Hunan, Sichuan, Cantonese --- but some seriously off-the-radar regional cuisine. Such is the case with this restaurant, about a 15-minute walk from the 7 train subway station. The cooking is that of Dong Bei, a region in northern China. The meaty menu is exhaustive, but your taste buds will love you for the fried and nearly candied mound of thin chicken in orange sauce. Likewise the eggplant in garlic sauce, fresh and radiant. Chicken with mushrooms and vermicelli is more like a hearty stew and worth the slurp. Alcohol is limited to beer but it pairs well with the hearty fare.
