Finally, Great Jackson Heights Pizza

John | Aug 5, 2002 03:16 PM

I just returned from having a great pizza lunch at an Argentinian Restaurant, La Cabana, 86-07 Northern Blvd. The special today was Margherita served with either soup or empanada. I had the beef empanada which was excellent. The pizza brought back memories of my youth on Staten Island in the 1950's & 1960's. It was thin topped with fresh tomatoes, sliced fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and sprinkled with olive oil. Each day they have a different special - Tue/ Romana, Wed/ Calabressa, Thur/Quattro Fomaggi, Fri/ Primavera. The pizza has 4 generous slices. Lunch is $8.95. In the evening they serve 8 different varieties from $8.95 to $10.95. One is served with prosiutto di Parma, fresh mozzarella and e'scaglie di parmigiano which I plan to have on my next visit. The atmosphere is very nice with great Spanish background music. For lunch they also have a chicken, beef and fish special. Cold beer served in an iced mug is just $3.00.
