Thanks for the reply.  I plan on returning but this time I'll look for the prices plus I'll ask the cashier the price before lI make a selection.  If I don't like what I hear, I'll leave.

Be aware that the Woodside location is the factory that does all the food preparation for the 13 Xi'an restaurants and is only open 3 1/2 hours a day from 11:30 to 3:00.

Only open on weekdays too

It's good but not cheap. You have to be somewhat strategic with these places.

And there is a discount for only salad. Ask or check the signs. There are different prices for salad, bbq, meat, and salmon/shrimp. If you mix, they probably charge you for the most expensive thing. I usually do two dishes.

Restaurants & Food / A Map of Our Own

Thanks (?!) to the pervasive perils of cycling in NYC, in this new post Eater's Robert Sietsema comes to a conclusion that JH-'lifers' constantly have confirmed:
https://ny.eater.com/2019/7/17/20685451/wheelchair-dining-food-critic-robert-sietsema

In spite of accessibility issues, he seems to have shared in the sense we all have here, as this short quote summing up his experience shows:
"Friends visited, and I would take them out for a Jackson Heights meal, finding more gems than I’d imagined. It was a win to once again visit new restaurants worthy of sharing. Indeed, in three weeks’ time I ate in nearly 30 restaurants, over half of them new to me. The best of these will appear in a Jackson Heights map soon."

YAY again, JH!

there are several signs indicating per pound prices in the place. i know there's one near the buffet itself, and i think there's one by the register. there's a surcharge if you take only seafood, but i don't think there's a discount for purchasing only salad bar items, which there really should be.

 This project sounds great and I wonder if some of the empty spaces in the Roosevelt Ave subway
station would work? Or any new construction that is underway like the behemoth apt building that
is going up on Roosevelt and 69th Street? I think they are said to have a "community space" in
that complex. Maybe some of the nightclubs too might be open to having this art work for a month.

I feel like protected bike lanes could be more dangerous for pedestrians. I prefer a mixture and everything slowing down

If the bill passed both houses of the NYS legislators before the election then it is not improper to sign it into law. It lets people’s vote count regardless of minor irregularities. I think that is fair. It does not mean it favors one side or the other. It also gives the judge assigned the case an easy out and not forced to help Katz steal the election.


It's as if you believe both houses are fair for all sides. I would think that both houses would favor Katz, if anything actually.

Restaurants & Food / Aroma Brazil - 75th Street & Roosevelt Ave

Yesterday at about 1 PM, I was near Aroma Brazil (food sold by weight) and I decided to bring home some lunch.  I took home a small container of mixed grilled vegetables   When I got to the register, I was surprised at a price of $11.60 including tax.  I have a kitchen scale at home and the container weight was 12.6 ounces.  This was my first visit to this buffet style restaurant.  The food was very good but not the price.  If there was a sign indicating price per pound, I didn't notice it.
