Asian Jewels Seafood Restaurant 敦城海鲜酒家 – Flushing – New York – The Infatuation


Frankly, multiple wedding receptions could happen at the same time in the many rooms of this Flushing dim sum spot. That is to say, there’s a lot of room here. Asian Jewels is usually pretty busy on weekend afternoons, but, even then, you’ll probably only have to wait 20 or 30 minutes to eat your har gow, shumai, and steamed rice rolls (since the place is so big).

You can also stop by for dinner to eat some delicious Cantonese dishes like a puffy chow fun with beef and salt and pepper pork chops with bits of well-seasoned peppers. If you really want to splurge, ask for one of the lobsters from the tank right above the fax machine on the general manager’s desk. Steamed then sautéed, it’ll arrive coated in scallions and ginger, making for an extravagant (and MP-expensive level) seafood centerpiece.

If you’re looking for the best dim sum in the city, we still prefer Sunset Park’s East Harbor Seafood Palace and Chinatown’s Ping. But Asian Jewel is up there, and it’s one of the best options in Flushing.
