Dessert is not to be missed at the newly renovated and version two of restaurant Arunee Thai Cuisine in Jackson Heights. Try the fried ice cream and fried banana rolls with honey. If you like Filipino turon, you’ll love Arunee Thai’s version.

Check out the work of Carlos Amador aka Honexl Art which was a work in progress and completed at last month’s Viva La Comida festival in Jackson Heights. Corn was the inspiration.

Had my first introduction to the Tortas Pumas by Tortas Neza at Viva La Comida 2013… such an incredible festival!  If you missed it, make sure you catch it next year.

This past Monday Bizarre Foods America shown the spotlight on what host Andrew Zimmern calls the “world’s best food town,”and “king of the American food scene.” For those of you who missed the episode check out this video of me taking Andrew on a trip around the world from Tibet to Liberia,with stops in Pakistan, Nepal, and Ecuador. And while you’re at it click here to take one of my food tours.

This fried rice was exceptional… not heavy or greasy whatsoever.  It was studded with bright green peas, tiny tomato medallions, peppers, and onions, as well as juicy grilled cubes of chicken, beef, and prawns.  We stumbled upon it at GangJong (Tibetan, Indian, & Chinese cuisine) while trying out the Ambassador program… this was an extra dish our server recommended, and it was fantastic.  The Ambassador Plate-also delicious—had three different momos and a tasty goat curry with whole wheat roti.  But this rice stole the show.  Breaking up the egg and mixing it in as you go along was perfect.

Ate at this very cart today, at the 2nd Jackson Heights Momo Crawl. More Himalayan dumplings than you can shake a stick at in such a tiny area! The guy at this cart told us momos are better with yak meat, up in the mountains of Tibet…but what can you do?
