Work at Home Mom Perks: Tasty Minion Food Delivered For Lunch

Services for Real Estate Pros with Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.

New Shanghai 125-02 84th Road Kew Gardens, New York 11415 (718) 846-0125 (718) 846-0180

Has a Chinese & Japanese Kitchen that ROCKS! Free delivery! I love them.

I love being a Work at Home Mom (WHAM). You get sweet foodie paradise perks. Seriously!

I am sitting over here with a big cool aid grin on my face because my little ones love Chinese and Japanese food almost as much as their Mama. One of the best places to eat in Queens County is New Shanghai. They have excellent taste and service customers off of two awesome menus. I frequently order meals from both categories and have to say my fave two entrees are their Deluxe Platter of Salmon Teriyaki and their Beef Teriyaki. We are about to chow down on 'em right now. BTW, both come served with Tempura, California Rolls, Soup, Salad and Rice. If you ever find yourself in need of a party platter for an open house, dinner party, or movie night with the DVD player, these are the people to call. Trust me. I'm talking Spanking-A tasty! Another plus: very reasonably priced too.

If your little minions are as picky as my little minions, you can not go wrong with New Shanghai.

What's your favorite foodie paradise spot? Inquiring minds want to know. :-)

Carolyn, my wife and I are big Asian food fanatics, probably more so on the Chinese than Japanese side. Your plateful looks delicious there. We've done more the takeout vs. the delivery as the timing works better for us.

We raised our kids on Chinese food, it is still a family favorite. We eat it every year after church on Christmas Eve. We all have our favorites so we pick it up a lot when I don't feel like cooking. without msg.

Laura, that sounds like a plan. Tell us more about how to find a chili cook off. I've never been to one. I guess I could Google it, but I'd rather hear about one that was attended and enjoyed. Those are so much more fun because they would be anticipation involved rather than an eeny-meenie-miney-mo selection (LOL).

Brad, we can hang, bay-bay! I am sooooo down with the good food delivery program (LOL).

I just had a spanking lamb dinner out with the girls at an awesome kosher neighborhood joint that is quite a treat. I am sooooo gonna blog about it later on tonight (as soon as I get my laundry done - LOL).

Gary, I wholeheartedly agree with the take-out plan as well. Especially when my hubby and I are trying to merge our schedules. Mike will be retiring with 20 years under his belt soon. Once he transitions out of law enforcement we'll be able to do a lot more AR road trips. I am very excited about the future AR get together we have planned. CT is next on my list. I am counting the days until we can visit the Chesterfield Hotel. Very cool... :-)

Missy, that is awesome! I love Chinese food. I also have a thing for Green Tea. My Russian gal pals are teaching me their customs and how to speak a few phrases, not to mention properly drink Green Tea (LOL). It appears I've been doing it wrong for years (LOL). Too funny!

"Sandy, you would be amazed with what I could do with $100 in my neck of the foodie paradise woods (LOL). I am going to have to stop by one day on my many trips en-route to Pawling, NY to see what goodies you guys have to offer for a Benjamin (LOL). Oh my word, I could get a 64 pcs Sushi Party Patter for $29.95 at New Shanghai. Three of those and a couple of bottles of juice/soda could feed all of the people residing in the 7 apartments on my floor (LMAO)."

Girl - just let me know when you're coming and I will be waiting with baited breath!  LOL  Maybe Stephen will teach me his dance then.  Mt Kisco is so on the way to Pawling!  I would so love to meet you!  Or - ya never know, we may get some Mets tickets and meet at a game!  How much fun would that be??? 

How can one drink green tea improperly?????

Sandy, you are on. We shall have to plot and plan a meet-up. As for the Green Tea, there are rules to how much liquid one may fill into the cup at a time. If one over fills their cup it is bad manners and offensive to the host. That is for another blog post. I need more info from my Russian friends on the customs and rules. :-)

Julie, it may be a blessing, or it may not, depending upon which side of the foodie paradise fence one is seated on (LOL). My next post will be on "Salute," a lovely place to eat and they deliver! :-)
