Uncle Zhou Restaurant Review

: On a busy block in Elmhurst, Queens, Uncle Zhou (pronounced “Joe”) slings up savory fare from the Henan region, known as the breadbasket of China. Henan is under-represented on the Chinese culinary landscape in the U.S., so order a number of dishes for the table and commence the exploration. The “Big Tray of Chicken” is exactly that: roasted bone-in chicken, chopped into bits, with taut skin and moist meat mingling with chilies and garlic. We also recommend the mysterious sounding “Dial Oil Hand Drawn Noodle” dish that delivers hand-pulled wheat noodles in a spicy oil broth, and the juicy dumplings, particularly the variety stuffed with lamb. Cash only.
