Flushing is crammed with quality salt-of-the-earth Chinese eateries, but Spicy and Tasty is the place to go for standout Chinese, particularly if you're a first-timer to the neighborhood. The restaurant lives up to its name with numbing Szechuan peppercorns and slicks of red chili oil. Tea-smoked duck has crispy skin and smoky, salty meat. Eggplant with garlic sauce tastes of ginger, tomatoes, and red chilies. Cool it all down with a Tsingtao beer.
