Eating My Way Around the World Without Ever Leaving Queens

http://fathomaway.com/guides/new-york-city/itineraries/guide-to-ethnic-food-in-queens-new-york/?utm_source=Fathom+Newsletter&utm_campaign=aed69daab2-Great_Greater_Greatest_New_York_7_31_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_fd909d041f-aed69daab2-310871853

Maybe some of the foodies can comment if they "co-sign" the article or some of the places listed...

(And I didn't eat my way around Queens...just the name of the article.)

Thanks, Aynat. That was helpful.

We have been thinking about Tortilleria Nixtamal (it is like "home") and will go on our next jaunt to Flushing. In the mean time, there is a presence downtown.

Pretty amazing link. I have been to quite a few places. Really good stuff. I think he could have included more places but since it's Queens...it would have been a super long list.

I must add that in my humble opinion....while i love Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden, i think their food is terrible.

The Thirsty Koala? Lol.

Never heard of lamb lollies, but the "Burger With the Lot" is a must. The beet will make it good. The rest sounds OK too.

The pavlova, lamington or caramel slice are all good for dessert ;-)

Nice post. There's a Zabb Elee in the East Village as well, and Larb Ubol has a similar menu

Thank you - a lot of new places to try.

I go to Tortilleria Nixtamal regularly - it's excellent, authentic, and I buy their masa to make tamales for special occasions (otherwise I use Maseca).

Agree with Ziggy - Zabb Elee and Larb Ubol in Manhattan are fine substitutions for Queens - although there are some new Thai places out there I want to try.

You can also go to any number of Ecuadorean, Peruvian, Mexican food carts under the 7 line.

And, Sik Gaek in Woodside for hot pot!

Rajbhog and Sammy's are both overrated imo. I'd prefer Meghna in the 74th street sweet/chaat shop ecosystem, or that big place on the corner of 73rd next to Rajbhog.

Zabb Elee and Nixtamal are spot on.

Cannelle is a crazily hidden gem. I used to love Djerdan when I lived in Astoria. It's right next to Zenon, a great Cypriot place with an amaaaaaaaazing belly-busting meze meal.
