Flushing, Queens, NY: First Look at New World Mall's Food Court

Opened just a few months ago, New World Mall's Food Court has become my new favorite Asian food place in Flushing. Take the escalator down to the basement level to find an impressive variety of Asian, largely Chinese, food offered; you can find almost all the regional Chinese cuisines, from Lanzhou hand-pulled noodles to Fuzhou fishball soups to Tianjin dumplings. The underground space is always packed with people, which makes it almost impossible to find a seat during dinnertime, so be ready to take food to go or jostle for a seat. But I don't mind that inconvenience given how cheap the food is; I have yet to find one dish that's over $10. I have found there things that I haven't encoutered yet in the States, as well as things that brought back childhood memories. Click through the slideshow for a look!
