The friendly charm about eating in Flushing is that it is cheap and good.  It may not be healthy but damn good.   Since there are so many restaurants in Flushing, there gotta be something special about a place that survives with nothing esthetically special about it.  It is time to put on the adventure coon hat and see how this White Bear animal lives!

Big sign over the kitchen of the menu items, it is identical to the mini one.

Interior of the shop, there is some seating but not much.  It is very cramped when there is a full house.

[Item 2] Wonton with Soup,  house wonton with a broth and seaweed.  The wontons are excellent, but the soup is not as flavorful as wished.  It is very light with the seaweed and scallions.  You need some hot sauce in this to liven it up.

[Item 10] Wonton with Noodle soup, the wontons of course are good in this dish, but the broth and the noodles make this dish very bland.  I am not really too sure why you would want to order this particular item.   There is just way too much noodle with nothing really going on here.  There needs to be more items to this dish to brighten it up.

White Bear

[Item 20] Dumplings with Leeks, this is not the vegetarian kind of dumpling.  The ground meat is perfectly ground up with the right mixtures of leeks.  The shell is doughy in a positive way, it works well with the soy, hot sauce and filling.  Highly recommended for Chinese meat dumpling connoisseurs.

[Item 17] Noodles with Hot sauce no soup, (Also known as Dan Dan Noodle)  This dish is excellent here, the combination of the chili oil, cucumbers, soy beans sprouts and  preserved vegetables is near perfect.  The only problem with this dish is that they give you so much of it.   There is so much noodle that you reach a point where you don’t want anymore or anything else.  I would recommend sharing this dish with a couple of people since there is no meat (maybe lard) and majority carbs.

[Item 6] Wonton in Hot sauce. The chili oil, scallions, and  preserved vegetables is perfect with the house wontons.  The topping is extremely similar to the dan dan noodle dish.  The smokiness of the topping intermingles with the tasty filling and soft thin tender wrapper shell.  So if you are flying solo into this restaurant, this is the dish to try and eat.  This is probably the best combination of everything that makes White Bear a great place to eat at.
