Lao Dong Bei is a marvelous new find in Flushing serving cuisine from the Dongbei region of northeastern China. I recently tried out this little hotspot with a friend and fellow food blogger who blogs at “Not Just Vegetarian”.

The food here is very reminiscent of dishes I sampled at Fu Run (another Flushing gem). This is the case as the Chef, An Hong Li, was the ex- chef there.

In my opinion, Lao Dong Bei has bettered the Fu Run menu in both variety and taste.

The husband / wife team here take great pride in showcasing their authentic home-style cooking. Just try their Cumin Fish dish which is a real stunner as is the Pork with Orange sauce.

Vegetables dishes at Lao Dong Bei hold as much sway as do the meat and fish dishes. I loved the stir-fried seasonal mountain greens and the vegetable triple delight. Even the tiny dishes of pickles they serve are delicious – I loved the radish!

There’s not much to be said for the décor at Lao Dong Bei but this little spot is bursting with heart, flavor and pride! It is definitely worth a visit.
