In conjunction with Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy: Stories of Chinese Food and Identity in America, MOCA has partnered with Queens-based food writer Joe DiStefano (Chopsticks and Marrow) for a specially designed food tour of Flushing. Limited space so purchase your tickets today.


Downtown Flushing is the most vibrant and diverse Chinatown in New York City offering a wealth of regional Chinese cookery as well as Korean, Malaysian, and Indian cuisines. Explore the myriad flavors of its bustling streets, food courts, and markets. Taste your way through a who’s who of regional Chinese cuisine—including the fiery fare of Sichuan, the Silk Road-inflected cuisine of Xi’an, as well as freshly made Cantonese rice noodle rolls, and the cumin-encrusted Dongbei classic known as the Muslim lamb chop —while visiting the neighborhoods’ famous food courts, restaurants, and hawker stands. Watch hand-pulled noodles being made at Golden Shopping Mall and savor creamy dou fu fa at Soy Bean Chen Flower Shop. There will also be a chance to shop at a Malaysian grocer and even a visit to the Ganesh Temple to sample dosai.


The tour meets in Flushing, Queens. Exact meeting location will be sent to all registered attendees prior to the tour date.
