There are not many good Chinese food restaurants in DC, so when Marcus and I traveled to visit friends in NYC the idea of going to Flushing for Chinese was super exciting. We ended up at Spicy and Tasty where I had the best dumpling I've ever eaten. The dumpling was served in chili oil with garlic and was filled with fatty, salty pork. We also ordered crab sichuan style; the sauce struck a number of notes: garlic, chilis, ginger, and plums and was topped off with fresh cilantro. Although the sauce was good enough to drink, it made it difficult to break apart the crab. We did a lot of sucking on shells and finger licking.
