Flushing’s Korean-Chinese Cuisine: Not Your Average Takeout

Korean-Chinese cuisine is different from your standard Chinese takeout. It isn’t trying to fool anybody into believing that it’s authentic; instead, this cuisine is Korean-style Chinese food characterized by its rich noodle and spicy stir fry dishes. Flushing, Queens is known for its diversity and fusion cuisine and its Korean-Chinese options don’t disappoint.

F.E.E.D. or Flushing’s Everyday Eats, Damn! is a series that highlights different restaurants in Flushing, Queens. Today we’ll be visiting Chinese House Restaurant on Murray Hill. Known among Koreans as Joong Guk Jip, this restaurant serves Korean-Chinese cuisine. We’ll be eating jajangmyeon and jjampong and ending the night with a sweet treat.

Chinese House also serves several different stir fry dishes like mapa dubu and crisp Korean-style fried chicken coated in a spicy sweet sauce. If you’re in the mood for something a little less aggressive, Chinese House offers a variety of milder dishes that aren’t spicy. But hey, a little pain for a lot pleasure ain’t bad.

Chinese House is on a street that is lined from end to end with restaurants. Despite the competition, it stands out among the residents of Flushing.The ambiance is casual and the staff are friendly. They’re more than happy to explain the spice level of the dishes and (pro-tip!) if you show up near closing, you may get a few extra servings of dessert. Don’t worry, you can burn it off later.
