Food Stall Review: Mama’s Kitchen

Details: Located in the food court at 8202 45th Ave, Flushing, NY 11373. A Yelp page can be found at https://www.yelp.com/biz/mama-s-kitchen-%E8%80%81%E5%9C%B0%E6%96%B9-elmhurst

Score: 6/10

Came here and ordered a white colored spicy soup with fish in it with a side of I think spinach cooked with garlic. Food was just okay. I think we ordered the wrong thing. It cost somewhere between twenty and thirty dollars. We also got some free ice cream because we ordered over twenty dollars… I think.

People working here were really nice.

Based on what we ordered, I would not come back. There are other things on the menu that looked good though.

Restaurant Review: Los Tacos No. 1

Details: Located in Chelsea Markets at 75 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011. Official site is https://www.lostacos1.com/

Score: 7/10

Los Tacos No. 1 is a taco stand inside Chelsea Markets, which is kind of a food market. Most of the stuff in here is priced for tourists.

The tacos here were pretty good. Nothing extraordinary, but good.

I got the carne asada and the adobada. Both were fine. All tacos cost around three to four dollars. They also give you a choice of tortilla (corn or flour tortilla), though I couldn’t really taste the difference between them.

Overall, an okay place to get some decent tacos. Keep in mind that this is a stand with no place to sit. There’s some public seating areas if you look for them in the hallway, but they are usually packed.

Restaurant Review: Little Tong Noodle Shop

Little Tong Noodle Shop is a contemporary Chinese good place. That means Yunnan inspired Chinese food with a little bit of Western touches added in. It’s fusion. Some people think that’s a bad word, but something new isn’t always bad.
