The other day I went with a friend to Flushing to have some Taiwanese food. We met as conversation partners at the International Center, and this was the last time I’d see her before she went back to Taiwan and I went to Senegal. Other than one amazing trip to Spa Castle (and an equally luscious meal at Spicy & Tasty) I hadn’t spent much time in Flushing, Queens. It’s nice to get out of the Manhattan-Brooklyn grind. I caught a glance of Citi Field out of the window of the 7 train. Gu-Shine is apparently one of the best Taiwanese restaurants in all of the New York City area. And of course there aren’t many good (if any) Taiwanese restaurants in Chinatown. Flushing is where it’s at.
