This Flushing restaurant is an alternative to Chinatown. Formerly known as Gum Fung, Jade Asian offers some of the best dim sum around in a catering hall type atmosphere, large, crowded and noisy. That's evident to the locals who come to catch up with their family and friends on a weekend morning. Servers make the rounds on pushcarts carrying steamed buns filled with meat, seafood and vegetables: all you have to do is point at what looks good! Sample cha siu baau if you like barbecue pork buns, cheong fun (rice noodle rolls) or har gau (popular shrimp-filled dumplings). For the more adventurous, there's chicken feet and fried octopus. Finish off with a customary egg tart; childa flaky puff pastry with an egg custard filling.
