A Culinary Day in Flushing, Some Political Protestors, and my Hairdresser

There’s always something intensely comforting about Flushing, Queens to me – how I have been going there regularly for a decade, and how so many things never change. I always get my hair cut by the same man at a salon called “San Mei” (3 Beauties) and the price of a haircut ($8) has never gone up.

The food here is great and ridiculously cheap. As long as you get past the fact you’re eating with a plastic fork, or standing on the street with political protestors next to you, or how there’s no service to speak of, it’s an amazing deal.

  2. It’s right by Golden Shopping Mall (41-28 Main St), to the left when you are facing the mall opening. Not sure of the precise address, sorry, but it about 3-4 doors down.
