I am always amazed how great the economical rice tasted after so many years. The familiar tastes with generous servings of sides and rice makes one feel somewhat warm. If you are on a tight budget, you can always count on Lunch Box at Flushing Chinatown to fill your empty stomachs with hot delicious food.
Priced at USD5.45, you can select four different kinds of side orders and collect a bowl of soup at the end of the line. The soup menu differs every day.
Although there are many economical rice stalls in Flushing Chinatown, nothing beats Lunch Box that offers a wide variety of freshly prepared food dishes. There are seafood, poultry, meat, soy products, vegetables and so on. You will be spoilt for choice.
I enjoyed the food immensely each time I patronised the store. I am missing it already.
