While it has a Broadway address the Mundo Cafe is actually on 32 St just a few steps south of Broadway, in Astoria, Queens, one block from the "N" & "Q" lines Broadway station (10-15 minutes from midtown Manhattan on the train), Mundo, a small, family run, friendly and unpretentious cafe, is a wildly eclectic dining place, offering original spins on traditional fare from Turkey, Argentina, Peru, Eastern Europe, the Near East and beyond. We've eaten here many times. What we like most? For starters, the Red Sonja, a red lentil patty, is a must; also the Peruvian Causa, a layered cake like concoction of yellow potatoes, mushrooms, beets, avocado & red onions. For mains: the Ottoman dumplings (ground beef or spinach), lobster ravioli, the veggie wrap al pesto or the mundo burger with frites (great frites - by all means get a side of the frites!). And the desserts are sinfully scrumptious - save room for at least one! Many veggie dishes are on offer and one can do tapas too. There are specials that change daily or by season. There is a good selection of reasonably priced wine and beer, but no hard liquor. A complete meal for two, including two starters, two mains, two desserts and a bottle of house wine will run around $100, minus the tip.
We're life long New Yorkers and Mundo is further proof of what we've said here before: in NYC the borough of Queens has the best food! Even if you're staying, or living in Manhattan, Mundo Cafe is very much worth the short subway ride out to Queens.
