Location visible to members


Let’s have the first Real Global Dining Meetup at a REAL destination restaurant in Elmhurst, Queens. Uncle Zhou specializes in the cuisine of Henan, the third most populous province of China. You may have read the New York Times review, Edible Queens feature or Chowhound forum, so join us to taste what all the fuss is about.

The proposed menu:

A variety of cold appetizers, a specialty of Henanese cuisine

Big Tray of Chicken: Bone-in dark meat chicken and potatoes in chili oil with wide hand drawn noodles

Baked Noodle and Fish in Sweet & Sour Sauce: Fish and vermicelli in real Chinese sweet & sour sauce

Spicy Crispy Shrimp: Jumbo fried shrimp

Triple Delight Dumplings: Delight x 3

Dial Oil Knife Shaved Noodle: Garlic, green onions, ground chili peppers and vinegar, but no “dial oil”

The final bill for the meal, including tax and tip, will be divided equally among the diners. The estimated cost per diner is $15-20. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks that you order. Cash only. Please bring small bills.

Seating is limited to one table. Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.
