Year of the Snake

The Chinese New Year starts today, and that can only mean one thing -- this bok gwai is getting some roast duck!

Shun Wang (aka Shun Won) is your typical Cantonese restaurant, serving soup, congee, BBQ meats, and other things of the like. The roast duck -- $6.50 an order -- is on par w/ most places in Chinatown.

Shun Wang Restaurant
81-25 Broadway
Elmhurst, NY 11373

The decor is that of a dungeon, but the take-out is fast and tasty.  The commute is about 20 minutes from Astoria, which is much more palatable than the hour commutes to the Manhattan and Flushing Chinatowns.  This place should be on your radar.

Gong Hei Fard Choy!!
