“You’ll be able to access world class Malaysian cuisine, Chinese dumplings, Chinatown ice cream factory in Flushing,” said Choe. “This is stuff you can’t find anywhere else in the city and we find it not only important to showcase our amazing diversity, but also to support our local businesses, and that’s one of the reasons why we’re doing this.”
