I'm planning an eating tour in Queens for April/May and came up with this preliminary itinerary:
Start in Flushing, meet in Flushing Library in the AM
1) Corner 28 - Peking Duck Sliders
2) Roosevelt Mall - Gua Bao
Take train to Jackson Heights
3) Buenos Aires Bakery - Dulce de Leche Donuts & Empanadas
4) Espresso 77 - Coffee!!
5) La Portena - Blood Sausage & this weird tongue appetizer I had one time
6) Maharaja Sweets - Dosa and Samosa Chat
7) UFC - Soy Garlic Fried Chicken Wings
8) Sripraphai - Roast Duck Green Curry, Crispy Watercress Salad, Chicken Curry Puffs, & Thai Iced Tea
9) V&V Bakery - Black & White Cookies
10) La Flor - Sliders and Shoestring Potatoes
11) Mangal - Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, and Turkish Bread
12) Natural Bean Curd - Soondubu
Take train to LIC
13) Hunters Point Wines
Take wine and Mangal takeout to the riverwalk for mini-picnic
I would like to work in Spicy Mina, Himalayan Yak, Tacos Coatzingo, De Mole, and Ihawan or that other Filipino restaurant (Evangeline's?) in the 50s somewhere, but not sure how... so would welcome ideas about that.
Sliders at La Flor seems out of place, delicious as they are - should I substitute an Irish pub, like burgers or shepherd's pie at Donovan's?
Also, I've never done this before, so I also have questions about logistics for those who have - when you go in with a group of 4 or 5 and order one or two small dishes at a sit down place like La Portena, does that get really awkward? I guess you just deal with it. But that's probably why Spicy Mina and the Yak are not on my list now.
And most importantly, can we eat this much food??????
