Taste of Jackson Heights

Taste of Jackson Heights was last weekend and some of us went on a little Umamiventure to Queens on Saturday afternoon. After attending “Taste of Times Square” and “Taste of the Village” in recent years, I have to say I like how they do it in the Heights! Very low key. Only about 8 restaurants had tables in the garden at a church, and tastings were only a dollar or 2. There was food from Argentina, Burma and India, to name a few. Here are a few pictures from our afternoon…



Mango Lassi


Burmese Banana Cake


Spanakopita


This Halal cart won the “Vendy Awards” this year


Steamed Colocasia Leaves
served with Dhokla (Indian Savory Yellow Cake)
and Samosas
