Fu Run | Flushing, NY | Best Chinese Meal in Recent Memory


it really gets on my nerves whenever a person says im only into fine dining. sure, i dont mind it. extravagant tasting menus with unfamiliar ingredients open my eyes and then what? they are never the things i crave when im hungry or homesick. they barely even cross my mind when i think about food. what i appreciate more is the simple traditional dishes, in most cases, ones i grew up eating.

welcome to flushing, my fave spot on the east coast.


fu run specializes in ‘dong bei’ northeastern chinese cuisine.

housemade country Style Green Bean Sheet Jelly 凉粉 – this supposed to be 东北凉皮,al dente noodle like dish. the waitress told us they cant make the noodle, instead they made the green bean sheet jelly, a soft version of the noodles. i expected it to be jelly like, not chewy at all, but it was actually pretty chewy and almost like the noodle version. the noodle version is almost impossible to find in the states, so i was super satisfied with this.


Lamb with Scallion 葱爆羊肉 – lamb was very tender

Beef and Potato with Brown Sauce 土豆炖牛肉 – this is a very simple traditional chinese dish, but this one at fu run was mind blowing good. the beef was melt in your mouth tender and the potato was fried then stewed to perfection. i had nostalgia when i was eating this.

Eggplant with Hot Garlic Sauce – my friend loved this altho i thought the batter was jus a tiny bit too thick. flavor was on point tho.

Muslim lamb chop – this is the thing to get at fu run. it’s more like lamb rack than lamb chop. coated with spices and cumin. crispy skin while juicy and tender inside packed with bold flavors. the meat jus flop off the bone with a gentle poke.


salt and pepper frog with fried garlic – if you never had frog before, it tastes kinda like chicken but 1000 times more delicate and tender. i LOVE frogs but sadly i can hardly get it in boston. the batter and the texture of the frog were jus right altho i wish it had a little more flavor.

handmade dumplings – 三鲜饺子 they were super good as well. they actually use real shrimps instead of the dried ones bs.

this was the BEST chinese meal ive had in recent memory. there is some decent chinese food in boston, but none of them is china good. food at fu run is china good. as authentic as it gets; they are exactly i would find in restaurants in china. so just shut up and eat!

  1. The subway picture took me back through a number of memories (one of my novels is titled “Subway Hitchhikers,” after all), but I can just imagine that bored bench of riders perking up at the destination you illustrate and describe.
    Since we live in New Hampshire, recommendations for dining in Boston are always welcome. Here’s hoping you find those frogs!

  2. Love your photos. And So true! I like fine dining once in awhile, but I always crave dishes from before I had much money. The food you posted looks incredible and now I’m craving Chinese.

  3. Flushing is just a hop, skip, and jump away from me and I always say I’ll make my way there for a Chinese foodventure. So many choices though that it gets overwhelming. Now that I’ve seen this post, I know where to go! My stomach thanks you.
