Jumping Jehoshaphat them’s some big jackfruit! Spotted at Korean megamarket Assi Plaza in Flushing. Do people actually buy them whole? And to think people call the durian the king of all fruit. Compared to these bad boys the football-sized tropical fruit is a mere pretender to the throne.
Ms. Ho looks into her cold room to see what flowers are freshest, limping along the way as she has since recovering from her stroke. She’s in a good mood, business has perked up, and she matches sunflower to ‘cranberry’ botanical before handing these to me. I insist she’s charging me too little. A head shake. From one weathered Korean grandma for another. #jacksonheights (Taken with Instagram at Ho Florist)
You simply have to try the deliciously inventive brunch menu at Leng Thai, fusing Thai and Korean dishes with American brunch classics. A prime example is the Pad Thai Kai Haw, a paper thin omelet stuffed with shrimp pad thai—best enjoyed in their outdoor backyard cafe.

I don’t know the name of this relatively new Korean BBQ joint, thus I shall call it happy novelty cow restaurant. It’s located in a section of Murray Hill known as m’uk-ja G’ol-mok, or Eater’s Alley, by Koreans. My chow sense tells me there’s good grub to be had here.
This intersection in Woodside is a multicultural microcosm of the international tapestry that is Queens. There’s a little of everything: Nepali convenience store, Korean car service, and a botanica.There’s even a Mexican flag in one of the apartment building windows. Around the corner find a Thai market and several Thai eateries.
Flushing summer 2010 - Corner of Roosevelt Ave. and Main St. If you’ve ever been to the busy part of Flushing, you’ve been on this corner. There seems to be a lot of people out on that day but it’s actually pretty light because it was a weekday. The weekends are packed.
