Foodie Fun in Flushing, New York

Once again I was out on the hunt for some good food in Queens, New York. It really isn’t hard to find good food in my hometown. You can get cuisine from anywhere in the world right in this one borough. This time we decided to get some Korean BBQ and Thai inspired ice cream.

This time around we headed over to Flushing known mainly for the many different Asian cuisines that can be found in the area. We decided to get some all you can eat Korean BBQ lunch at The Picnic Garden. I had passed by it before, but this was our first time checking it out and it didn’t disappoint. It would had been nice if all the dishes at the buffet were labeled, but we picked out some really good stuff to eat. I will definitely have to go back and try their dinner because they change everything at the buffet!

We also headed to 10 Below Ice Cream where we got Thai inspired rolled ice cream, but with signature flavors. I got the Smores’ while Joanna got mint with Nutella and then put a ton of toppings on it. It was really good and I completely finished mine off. You should definitely check out 10 Below, they 4 locations around NYC with one coming to Philly and Los Angeles soon!

So see all that we ordered, the shenanigans, and more below!

Have you ever been to The Picnic Garden or 10 Below Ice Cream?

    Wow! What an amazing variety of food at the BBQ – I wouldn’t know where to start – or stop, haha!! But I’d go just to see the statue in the foyer – that’s a real classy touch! As for the rolled ice-cream? That just looks AMAZING! Thanx for the virtual foodie frenzy 😀

      Unfortunately you only have an hour and a half to go all out on all you can eat. The statue was too funny.

    New York is a foodie heaven, and I love that there’s such a diverse range of cuisine on offer throughout the city. Haven’t been to Flushing, so will include this on our next trip – always up for South Korean BBQ~

    I would not think of Korean BBQ and ice cream together in one place. Looks like a foodie paradise!

      It wasn’t together in one place. We went to two different spots that weren’t too far from each other.

    The rolled Ice cream sounds really cool. Would love to have one with the mint flavour topped with Nutella, sounds tantalizingly tempting. The video is nice too.

      Me too. Delicious. Yes much has changed in 10 years and yet stuff is still the same. Odd how that can work.
