Day: Rose House; Night: Buddakan

These two outings happened on different dates but they’re both memorable. Memorable = Post-Eligible. That’s right folks, I try to bring you the best of what I encounter as well as what I see. Not to mention it is in time to make a New Years Resolution: to blog more often. So…here goes!

Day: Rose House

After a nice dim sum meal with the family in Flushing aka. “China-in-New-York”, we decided to spend more time with each other at the Rose House located in Queens Crossing. They actually have locations all over Asia (definitely in Taiwan!), and they are now in Flushing too. You can basically order rose teas from polite waitresses. Well I decided to order this dessert along with a bunch of tea:

Ice Cream with Warm Waffles. Oh yes, it was pretty great – the combination of cold ice cream with warm, crispy waffles.

Conclusion: This place is not cheap for what you’re getting. Hopefully you can enjoy the atmosphere and believe what you’re paying is going into the floral couches and delicate teacups.

Night: Buddakan

I remember running to meet my friend that night for drinks at Buddakan. I have never been there but heard a little bit about it so we decided to check it out together. As we pushed through various crowds that looked like they were attending corporate happy hours, we got to the bar to order drinks. I gotta say…they were delicious. They were able to mix beers with asian flavors pretty well. It went down my throat very smoothly. However, the longer we talked the more we got hungry so we decided to order some snacks, as pictured below:

Beef tartare with a sesame cracker. Not too bad.

Jade Shrimp Dumplings. We killed these pretty easily…

Conclusion: I would say this place is great for drinks and I’m still a bit undecided about the food. I think we need to go back again and have a real meal there.
