Bring your chopsticks and your appetite for a walking tour of Downtown Flushing with the “guy who ate Queens.” Experience the sights, sounds, and flavors of China from Sichuan and Shanghai to Henan and Yanbian as I give you an inside look at New York City’s most delicious and diverse Chinatown.

The New York Times calls me an “invaluable food sleuth,” and Andrew Zimmern calls me "the gold standard." This is your chance to eat the best of Queens with me.

Savor such regional Chinese specialties as Henanese pot stickers, fiery Sichuan chicken, Xinjiang lamb kebabs, fresh tofu, Korean kimchi dumplings, and more at my favorite food courts and hawker stands! There’ll be a chance to chat with chefs and shop at Chinese, Korean, and Malaysian markets too.

All food and soft drinks are included.

My friend Rob calls me the “foremost Caucasian expert on Asian food in Queens.” The New York Times calls me an “invaluable food sleuth.”And New York magazine calls me the “guy who ate Queens.” I prefer to think of myself as the man who ate his way around the world without ever leaving Queens. It’s an ongoing mission that I chronicle on my blog, CHOPSTICKSANDMARROW. I live to discover new regional Chinese food courts, Mexican street foods, Nepalese dumplings, and Indian junk food. I’ve been told that I take too many photos of food. My response: “Wait, don’t eat that yet!” Full profile

Worth every penny. Joe is incredibly knowledgeable about the food and the cultural influencers that affect flavors, ingredient selection, preparations, etc. You will be stuffed and thinking about the "best ____ ever!" hours after the tour is over. I definitely plan on going back to Flushing on my own and hiring Joe again for a different food experience.

This was a delicious adventure! For those of you who think you know New York, you really don't until you have done this tour... Joe does an amazing job picking the best dishes and giving you a full experience of various cuisines, popular local hang-outs and even the best markets. Everyone I tell about our experience wants us to take them to Flushing China Town - I can't wait to go back and bring more friends to experience Joe & the amazing food finds.

It was a fun introduction to Chinese food in Flushing. Joe took us to all these little food joints that probably only the locals know about.

This was a unique adventure. I didn't know Flushing even had a Chinatown. Joe brought us to places we would have never known about and sampled food that we never would have thought of trying. Joe is a great guy and wonderful guide. We will definitely try another one of his tours and tell our friends
