Fiesta Grill - Great new JH Philippino

Anicca | May 26, 2010 11:38 AM

I finally tried Fiesta Grill - located on Roosevelt Avenue at 69th Street in Jackson Heights -- last night. What a GREAT little place. It's been open about 6 weeks and draws a steady crowd every night (haven't been by at lunch). I know it sounds like another Mexican offering, but it is solidly Phillipino. Typical toro-toro (point and serve cafeteria style). What did I like about it?

- Not fancy, but new, clean, lots of positive energy
- Price-wise a real bargain: $3.95 for rice or noodles and 1 side; $5.95 for rice or noodles and 2 sides
- Solid food: about fifteen sides spanning all the Phillipino basics; I had delicious servings of kare-kare (oxtail in peanut sauce) and menudo (sort of a pork stew) with a helping of traditional pancit noodles
-Staff are super friendly and very helpful with choices (I am not much of a Phil'no food expert) and are fluent in English

Imagine a busier, more upbeat version of Java Village with Philippino food instead, you'll get the idea.
