When it comes to clairvoyant pastries, breaking apart a fortune cookie is much more dignified than digging through a jelly donut in search of a mini Magic 8-Ball. Shun the raspberry stains of foresight with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Chinese cuisine and more at Tung Shing House in Rego Park.
Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, Tung Shing House chops through a kaleidoscopic spread of artfully arranged Chinese lunch and dinner fare in a spacious, elegant environment. Fork-herd a culinary barnyard of specials such as sesame chicken ($9.95) and beef with black pepper sauce ($13.95) toward open mouth stables or use the braised-beef short ribs as savory boomerangs for passing notes between tables ($18.95). The peking duck is one of the chef's specialties and a perfect meal to share or use to distract a predator chomping at your heels ($32.95). Shark-fin soup (market price) promotes tableside gill growth, while an eclectic Japanese menu peppers sepia tongues with a Technicolor tapestry of tightly furled sushi.
Recently renovated, Tung Shing House envelops diners in luxurious décor, satiating aesthetic appetites with serene earth tones, dazzling chinese lanterns, and majestic artwork and statues handpicked from China. Regally rounded archways glamorize any trip to the restroom and an 80-seat outdoor terrace encourages over-gorged eaters to camp out in chopstick-created log cabins until tomorrow's meal.
