If you’re a fan of Dim Sum, here is some good news. Mulan, one of the most upscale Asian fusion restaurants in Flushing, Queens, just added an amazing assortment of Dim Sum selections to their menu just in time for Fall. Sleek, modern, and affordable, Mulan is an upscale Asian fusion restaurant that still maintains the ‘traditional’ part in its menu – Jiangzhe, Cantonese, and Fusion. Guests marvel at Mulan’s sleek waterfall lighting system in the elevated center of its dining room, which complements a unique dining experience from a creatively delicious menu. Utilizing a team of chefs working out of 3 different kitchens, Mulan uses only the finest quality foods served at competitive prices.
While here in Flushing on a sunny, warm weekday afternoon, we stopped into Mulan’s to try some of their Dim Sum, which, we are happy to say, Mulan serves all day, every day. At Mulan’s all-day Dim Sum, it’s all about the dumplings. Sitting down with us was Assistant manager Claire Tso, who shared Mulan’s secret to their incredible tasting dumplings. Mulan uses only all-natural and fresh ingredients, including 100% natural chicken soup. Mulan’s dumplings have less oil, salt, and sugar, making them light in texture and are actually healthy for you!
Here are some dumplings that we simply could not pass up: Crab Meat Tiny Bun, made with fresh Alaska crab meat and Kappaphycus alvarezii (Sea bird nest, which is high in nutritional value). Their Spinach vegetarian dumpling is truly amazing, using actual spinach skin – and not a drop of food coloring! Mulan’s traditional soup dumplings are almost 3” in diameter and are so full of soup that Claire recommends you first take a straw to make sure you get every drop! The shrimp dumpling at Mulan has the freshest shrimp meat, it was almost like the shrimp is actually jumping in your mouth. Their Savory Juicy Steambun was filled with a tasty combination of scallops, sponge cucumber, and Kappaphycus alvarezii. Still hungry to taste more from the menu, we delighted in the Fish & Flat Leek spring roll, Seafood & Watercress dumpling, and the deep fry Radish Puff. Mulan’s Cabbage & Pork pot sticker was also one of our favorites. Claire reminded us to always eat dumplings while they are still warm so that you get the most flavor, and be sure to relax and enjoy a glass of white wine.
With still some room left for a sweet finish, we asked to see the dessert menu. Mulan’s dessert menu is a collaboration of their fusion chefs, creating such unique items as Chocolate Lava Cake with Raspberry Sauce, and an amazing Lime and Ginger Creme Brulee. Their Image Sweets are a unique assortment of marzipan-looking miniature fruits that are simply fantastic!
Mulan never fails to impress, both with their food and ambience. For a wonderful dining experience, and for some of the best Dim Sum found anywhere, be sure to make Mulan your next choice for a great meal with great service.
