Eating in NYC: Dim Sum in Flushing, Queens
It's pretty hard being a New York Mets fan these days, considering the team's dismal record, but I'm thankful for the fact that at least the neighborhood surrounding Citi Field, the team's stadium in Queens, New York, is a goldmine for great food. Not only does the stadium itself sell city delicacies like Shack burgers and cannolis from Mama's of Corona, but a quick 15-minute walk along Roosevelt Avenue in Queens takes me to Perfect Team Corporation Restaurant, one of the best dim sum joints in all of the five boroughs. Before a weekend day game, I come here around 10:30 a.m. (any later and I'd have to wait on line for an hour), and dig into plump har gao (shrimp dumplings) that are well-peppered and juicy, and small bites of oily, rich pork ribs that are dotted with chunks of squash, which absorb the porky juices perfectly. My team might get me down, but this is the kind of breakfast that perks me up, no matter what the score is. —By Jayanthi Daniel, Saveur
