Flushing’s Sweet-n-Tart, one of the city’s top outposts of Cantonese cookery, has introduced a new menu based on owner Spencer Chan’s recent travels to Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan, reports Gael Greene on Insatiable Critic. Chan knocked Gael out with “never-before-encountered choices.” Of note: “Windmill foie gras dumplings. Chestnut sticky rice shu-mai. Cheese-filled almond shrimp croquette. Cilantro crusted fried calamari. Pork cutlet with peach sauce and yogurt.” The dishes sound pretty intense, and the pictures seem to back up her descriptions. Something major is happening in Flushing, and it’s not at the Golden Mall.
