Mon - Sun: 11AM - 3AM
Located just off the main drag in bustling Flushing, Queens, Fu Ran restaurant cranks out a bold northern Chinese menu for local Chinese families and groups of friends — plus a smattering of New York foodies who were willing to trek to the end of the No. 7 subway line. The no-frills, brightly lit dining room lacks ambience, but that's more than made up for by the quick, friendly service and unforgettable food. Order the Muslim lamb chop (a deep-fried rack of lamb smothered in cumin, sesame seeds and chili spices), a cilantro-based tiger vegetable salad and green bean sheet jelly (gelatinous noodles and cucumbers with red oil) and you'll quickly see why this is decidedly not your average Chinese take-out joint. Reasonably priced pitchers of beer and desserts like candied taro in a sugary-sweet sauce balance out the menu's meaty spiciness. Weekends can get busy, but you can make a reservation if you're going with a group, which is the way to go: The more people you bring, the more dishes you can try. When the check comes you'll be pleasantly surprised, because it's hard to spend more than $30 per person.

What to tell a cabbie
Take me to Roosevelt Ave. and Prince St. in Flushing, Queens. (From many points in the city, a taxi ride to Flushing will be expensive. Consider taking the Subway or ask the staff at your hotel to arrange a fixed fare with a car service.)
