Golden Lake Seafood Restaurant

60-06 Main Street
Flushing, NY 11355

Won’t return, even the service is fine, and the free soup is pretty yummy.

Dishes we ordered looked aged and bland. The fried fish is too salty. We wanted the king crab but it’s not available. The beef is tender.

Xiaozhan Training Station 小站练兵

小站练兵 (1895). Photos are from Judge Zhou.

知名度为何不如五四? 再次全程参观,发展有不少改动,去袁化的改动,相信不是园方本意. 无语,无奈.
