last stop on f train -- nice guyanian curry

queue | Nov 14, 2003 04:59 PM

was far out in queens today, even farther out than the last stop on the f train. stopped for lunch at a guyanian place on 183rd st. just off of hillside ave. this is close to jamaica. i don't remember the name of this place but it advertises "guyanian-chinese" food and is also a bakery. it is a little nicer than the other guyanian-chinese places around there, which mostly look like the same american-chinese restaurants you'll find anywhere. it is run by a very nice guyanian lady who cooks west indian food, and there is also a chinese chef who cooks chinese food. on the guyanian lady's recommendation, i had a chicken curry, which was quite good. the chicken was cut into smallish pieces and was very tender and flavorful, basically falling off the bone. the curry was very dark in color. in flavor, it was more like a japanese-style curry, but the texture was thinner. very rich, spicy and flavorful. somewhat chile-hot, but not extremely so. this was quite good -- maybe not worth travelling all the way out to the end of the f line, but if you happen to find yourself in that neighborhood, i would really recommend it. there were quite a lot of customers in the place, who were all nurses, i am guessing from jamaica hospital, which i *think* is nearby. they were all eating chicken fried rice, which the owner told me was her most popular dish (though she herself doesn't eat it).
