Storm!
Before a terrible storm...my friend was driving, gradually, the clouds thickened and we saw it...we jumped out of the car to catch this phenomenon. A strong wind was blowing and without a tripod to shoot was incredibly difficult, but the tripod we had so we knelt down and shot a panorama. In 20 metres from us was struck by a tremendous lightning and every minute was scary...suddenly the cloud began to change shape, turning into a giant jellyfish ...

"What would be revealed if American corporations were examined through the same sharp lens of historical confrontation as the one then being trained on German corporations that relied on Jewish slave labor during World War II and the Swiss banks that robbed victims of the Holocaust of their fortunes?"

It's a story with an all-too familiar ending ...

What was #Flushing like in the 1940s?
When Flushing was a neighborhood of European immigrants in the 1940s, Pearl Chow’s was one of the sole Asian families there.

JooMakGol is one of our favorite restaurants in Flushing, Queens! This family-owned and operated restaurant specializes in mackerel ssam bap, which features expertly grilled fish and a wide variety of vegetable and seaweed greens that you use to wrap rice, ban chan, and whatever your heart desires. The Korean cuisine in this small restaurant is authentic and freshly-made every day. Would recommend for lunch or dinner with friends and family.

Presso Coffee is the latest entry into Flushing's hyper-caffeinated market. The layout is spacious and inviting. The staff are knowledgeable and courteous. However, the pour-over coffee was too acidic and difficult to drink, considering what they were charging per cup. Also tried the mango waffle, which was too sugary and saccharine for my taste -- not the fluffy, buttery texture expected. Presso is a great concept and a place we'll probably return to in the future, but one wonders if it will survive Flushing's brutal marketplace of low-cost Chinese bakeries and higher-end French-Korean coffeehouses.

River Japanese Cuisine has a wide range of traditional sushi, sashimi, bento, and donkatsu fare as well as dishes like Avocado Soup. Good presentation, but the fish is not as fresh as other sushi places. The Soft Shell Crab appetizer was a disappointment: they gave us a very small, very oily, and not very tasty crab. The Sashimi Bento Box was ok, but the amount of fish was small and not very delicious -- they included fake crab meat, which should not be included in a $16 bento box. Service was efficient, but not very friendly. The decor (left over from the previous restaurant at this location) was very good and gave a nice laid-back lounge vibe.

Was really looking forward to eating at the Waffle House. Unfortunately, our visit ended up being an unsavoury experience. The staff offered no greeting or acknowledgement when our party of three adults and two children entered. We ordered waffles, but it took them forever to bring them to our table and the Cook kept handling the food with his bare hands, which he then proceeded to wipe on the side of his clothes. Our waiter kept getting our order wrong and kept forgetting to bring us coffee or refilling. Another server kept smoking cigarettes (inside the restaurant) a few feet from us, even in the presence of a mother feeding her baby. The chicken apple pecan had no pecans and only bits of tiny desiccated Apple bits. Not recommended.

Caffe Bene is a popular chain store for coffee drinkers originating in south Korea. Feeding on the growing addiction to caffeine, the franchise-based chain has already overtaken Starbucks in its home market and is opening up 600 locations in the U.S. and expanding to 10,000 locations worldwide by 2020. Unfortunately, the Caffe Bene franchise in downtown Flushing is poorly designed and managed. The arrangement of the furniture is not efficiently laid out and uninviting (the air conditioner blows directly into customers). The staff provide sub-par service and don't seem to understand English: you often have to repeat your order and they still get it wrong. The coffee itself is average and not worth the prices charged. The desserts are overly sweet and taste like dime store candy (don't order the cheesecake). Wifi does not work when we visited. Would not recommend!

Some of the best sushi I've eaten! Oita Sushi is an intimate neighborhood sushi parlor with an amazing chef and dedicated and caring staff. We tried their Manhattan Combo with Udon and was pleasantly surprised by the texture of the chewy noodles and the crispness of their sushi rolls and salads. The spices give all the food a nice kick, but don't overpower the taste. The food here is super fresh (the salmon we had was bought that day and tasted delicious) and they buy organic food directly from local farms. Don't forget to try their yummy Triple Ceviche and Curry Udon!

Had the salami provolone sandwich, which was fresh and tasty. Would recommend for late night snack.
