Buried in the middle of World’s Fare’s report about Vietnamese foie-gras dumplings (exciting in its own right) is some very happy news for food freaks: It seems the Flushing Mall, a.k.a. Asian-food heaven, will not be torn down anytime soon, despite reports to the contrary. Blogger Joe DiStefano ran into an employee of the company that owns the shopping center, who said it was safe for now. We plan to celebrate this weekend with a serious dumpling binge, or maybe a food-mall crawl. [World’s Fare/Edible Queens, Related]
