Not only is Elmhurst Queens’ second Chinatown; it’s home to a thriving Southeast Asian community. Join me for a one-of-a-kind guided tour of Indonesian, Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai markets and restaurants.
Sample Indonesian dishes like stewed jackfruit and crunchy keripik kentang kacang manis, Indonesia’s sweet spicy and savory take on potato chips. Tuck into a Vietnamese sandwich while sipping a salty lemonade. Browse a Thai market for ingredients like kaffir lime leaves, and curry pastes. Elmhurst is currently a hotbed of Thai culture and cuisine and the tour also includes a visit to the Emerald Buddha. Book Now!
My friend Rob calls me the “foremost Caucasian expert on Asian food in Queens.” The New York Times calls me an “invaluable food sleuth.”And New York magazine calls me the “guy who ate Queens.” I prefer to think of myself as the man who ate his way around the world without ever leaving Queens. It’s an ongoing mission that I chronicle on my blog, CHOPSTICKSANDMARROW. I live to discover new regional Chinese food courts, Mexican street foods, Nepalese dumplings, and Indian junk food. I’ve been told that I take too many photos of food. My response: “Wait, don’t eat that yet!” Full profile
