Bubble Tea Review: Anda Cafe

Details: Located in Hong Kong Market Food Court at 37-11 Main St, Flushing, NY 11354. Official site is https://andacafeusa.com/

I came here and ordered the Iron Goddess Milk Foam. Iron goddess is a kind of oolong tea. It was okay. Just another average bubble tea place. They have trouble speaking English here so be prepared for that.

Score: 6/10


Restaurant Review: Peter Luger Steakhouse


Details: Located at 178 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211. Official site is https://peterluger.com/

Score: 7/10

Peter Luger Steakhouse is an institution in New York City. It’s been around a long time and set the standard for New York City steakhouses. I came by with muted expectations and got exactly what I expected. Peter Luger is a decent steakhouse with mediocre sides and decent prices considering the product they sell and what their competitors price their steaks at.

Mothership Meat Company is a relatively new barbecue place that opened in Long Island City. The food is just okay. I think the most attractive thing about this place is the location and how comfortable the space was.

Bubble Tea Review: if Cha Tea

Details: Located at 136-11 38th Ave, Flushing, NY 11354. Official site is http://ifchanyc.com/

This place is located in front of Zebra Lounge, a bar an karaoke place. I’ve tried the brown sugar boba milk and their cheesecake milk tea. The brown sugar milk tea tasted about as good any other I’ve had. They even managed to keep the tapioca warm. The cheesecake milk tea’s only difference with regular milk tea is that I think they mixed in that cheese foam they put on top of some drinks. Otherwise, cheesecake milk tea is about the same as any other milk tea. Most thing cost around five or six dollars.

Overall, a good place to get bubble tea. On a side note, if you come here during the warmer seasons, there are a ridiculous number of mosquitos in this place for some reason. I saw like ten huge ones just hanging out on the wall.

Food Stall Review: Thai Express

Details: Located at the food court at Hong Kong Plaza, which is located at 3711 Main St, Flushing, NY 11354. An unclaimed Yelp page can be found at https://www.yelp.com/biz/hong-kong-food-court-6-thai-express-flushing

Thai Express is a food stall in Hong Kong Plaza’s relatively new food court.

They only make four things here: Hainanese chicken, fried chicken leg, chicken cutlet… and one other thing I can’t remember. I like that since it simplifies things. Everything costs around ten dollars. You can get a Thai iced tea for a dollar extra with your order.

I had the fried chicken leg which came with rice and a small soup. The chicken was well seasoned and it came with a nice sweet and spicy sauce.

Overall, pretty good and likely the least redundant option in that food court.

Score: 7/10
