New York City Review: Asian Jewels Seafood Restaurant

13330 39th Ave
Flushing, Queens
(718) 359-8600

After doing some research online, it seemed like this was one of the best places in Flushing for dim sum.  Just like at the dim sum places in Chinatown on a crowded day you get a number and wait for it to be called out.  You really don’t have to wait long to get a table so it’s worth the wait.  It really feels like you’re in Hong Kong or somewhere else in China when you walk into this place. What I love about dim sum is the variety you can eat with just two people.  Below are photos of everything we ate between the two of us.

Some sort of pork patty

Siew mai: pork and shrimp dumpling
One of my favorites: pork riblets with black bean sauce
Chicken feet: better than any I’ve had in Chinatown because it’s very tender
Turnip cake
Shrimp stuffed chili peppers
Didn’t really like this: celery, carrots and shrimp wrapped with glass noodles
One of my favorites: fried glutinous rice balls with sesame and lotus root paste
Fried dough wrapped in rice noodles
Some sort of pork ball
Rice noodles with shrimp
