Flushing Queens is a realer (is that a word?) Chinatown or Korean town then what you get in overtouristpopulated ChinaTown in downtown Manhatten. Once you get off the subway you are whisked into another world. Just roaming around feels like you left NY completely and ended up in Seoul or Shang Hai I can't tell which. I know Korean letters have alot of circles. There are tons of restaurants and bizarre little shops. I even bought a complete paper suit here that I later found out is for putting on the dead. Well I wore it for halloween and ended up completely ripped to shreds by the end of the night. Kum Gang San has a restaurant here, (a famous eatery on 32nd street in Korean Town Manhatten) but I think this was the first of their establishments.

Address: 7 train to main street Flushing

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
