Flushing, NYC: Food Crawl + Bonus Food Map
8 Places • 31 Saves • ago
$14.00
🚨 20% OFF 🚨 This is a food tour that I've actually done with a few friends, so it's tried, tested, & true! It includes 7 spots that are all within walking distance of each other so it’s perfect for a fun day trip. Each spot in the crawl serves food that you can order in small amounts. That means you can try ALL of the spots in a day! 5 of them feature savory options, and the last 2 feature awesome desserts. The order of the stops makes the most sense for walking. Most of the stops in this food crawl offer Chinese food, because of the heavy Chinese influence in the Flushing area. Most people think of Manhattan’s Chinatown when they think of Chinatown in New York. However, most of the food in Manhattan Chinatown is Cantonese (and yes, it's great!). On the other hand, Flushing is Queens’ Chinatown. It's not necessarily forgotten, but it represents mainland China more. Manhattan’s Chinatown is more compressed, whereas Flushing has a lot of big food halls, grocery stores, and communities so it feels more local. I've also included a bonus map of 15 of my other favorite food spots in Flushing and nearby Murray Hill… in case you happen to still be hungry, or if you ever return to Flushing & just want to try something new! The bonus spots aren't in walking distance the way the ones in the food crawl are. But I wanted to include some food in this guide that wasn't just Chinese, to highlight the Korean, Indian, and Taiwanese demographics that also influence these neighborhoods.

Hi, I'm Justin (aka Hungry Artist)! I was born and raised in Queens and I've been drawing for as far as I can remember. I love trying and eating new kinds of foods in NYC. NYC is truly a melting pot of different cultures and I fell in love with the diverse cuisines that the city has to offer. I wanted to combine my two passions in life: food and art. I hope to make a positive impact through my platform and thank you so much for your support!
