Eating WEST INDIAN FOOD in LITTLE GUYANA!! Queens, NYC

???? SHIVA:
✈️ CHECK OUT MY TRAVEL BLOG:

New York City is arguably the largest and most diverse cultural melting pot on the planet. The cuisines of over 100 countries around the world are represented in its restaurants. So when I got the opportunity to go on a food tour of the Little Guyana neighborhood, I jumped at the chance! Come with me as I go on a Guyanese food tour of Little Guyana in Queens, NYC!

Our journey began on Liberty Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard. Liberty Avenue is the mecca for Indo-Caribbean cuisine in New York. Shiva is Trinidadian and took me to have the ultimate Trinidadian breakfast at Tropical Jade 3.

???? DAVID’S BEEN HERE MERCH:

I could see shrimp, goat, duck, rotis, and more there. It’s a diner-style restaurant with a long buffet where they serve you. We ordered the doubles (thin, stuffed flatbreads), roti, buss-up shot, dal puri, bake & saltfish (fried pastry stuffed with salt fish), curry shrimp, and stew pork.

My Sorrel soda tasted a little like cranberries and Shiva’s banana soda tasted exactly like bananas! First, we jumped on the doubles, which were doughy and contain chickpeas and chutneys. They were very spicy! I loved them with the spicy hot sauce!

Next was the baked & saltfish. It contained bacalao, or codfish and was a little fluffier and had more texture than the bread in the doubles. The spicy sauce took it to another level! The stew pork was chunky, fall-apart tender, and went great with the roti.

The large roti with the curry shrimp was excellent and was more of a light, stew-like curry. I also liked the potatoes in the dal puri. But the curry shrimp gravy was out of this world!
Back outside were displays of fruit and vegetables outside a supermarket. We walked past nail salons, sari shops, Pooja shops, fruit vendors, and more shops selling cultural items. I could hear Hindi music coming from a lot of them. We stopped inside a sari shop called Henna Fashion Inc. Everything there was beautiful!

From there, we continued on an stopped at a coconut vendor outside. He cut the top off so I could drink the water inside. It was super refreshing! Then, he cut it open so we could eat the cool, filling meat inside! It took me right back to Asia!

At Anita’s Fashion Pooja Center, we saw statues of Hindu gods as well as Indian bridal gowns and other clothing. Then, on 123rd and Liberty, we headed to Avenue BBQ Hut. In the kitchen, they made us some BBQ lamb and BBQ chicken platters with barbecue sauce and garlic sauce over a bed of fries.

The BBQ lamb was delicious and high-quality. I loved the barbecue sauce and the fries underneath. It was my first time having barbecued lamb and it blew my mind! I couldn’t get enough of it!

We followed that with some sparkling apple juice and then jumped on the chicken. It fell right off the bone. One of my favorite Caribbean chicken dishes ever!

Then, we headed past bakeries, shops, and more to Fiwi Foods, a food truck on 124th and Liberty selling jerk chicken, jerk pork, oxtails, curry goat, and more. But we were heading to Little Guyana Bake Shop. Shiva even gave me a Backyard Republik gift bag!

We made a quick stop inside Singh’s Roti Shop & Bar, a famous roti shop with a huge menu. Everything looked amazing! We tried a crisp Carib lager and quickly checked out Sybil’s Bakery & Restaurant.

At Nest Restaurant, we got che chi kai chicken, two types of wontons, fried chicken with rice, and more. The che chi kai chicken was light and crispy, and the jerk chicken wontons were great. I also loved the Chinese chicken fried rice. The blueberry & cream cheese wontons were so unique!

ABOUT FOOD AND FOOTPRINTS:

We are Greg and Jumi, hailing from opposite ends of the globe. Greg is a native New Yorker who was born and raised in Queens NYC and Jumi grew up in the beautiful islands of the Visayas region of the Philippines.

How did we meet? One of us messaged the other on Instagram (before sliding in DM's was even possible through the app!) and we met just after Hurricane Sandy hit NYC in October 2012. Although we grew up in two very different worlds, we bonded over a love of experiences over material things, delicious food and exploration.

We have visited 15+ countries together since December 2014 exploring beaches, ancient temples, bustling streets and ruins. Along the way, we get adrenaline flowing whether paragliding, ziplining, or jetskiing.

To fuel up for our adventures (and everyday life), we eat lots of local food wherever we are. Street food, carts, trucks, hidden gems and family-run sit-downs are our mainstays. We don't cook, but prefer to spend our money on experiences and we treat food as one. Hey, we gotta eat regardless, right? May as well enjoy it and support good businesses while we're at it!

All of this is done while we work full-time at our day jobs. How do we do it? Follow along our journeys and you will learn more. Welcome to our lifestyle!

Rare Finds in Little Guyana! ????????

Pepperpot, cookup rice, haasa, curry chicken with roti, metemgee. The beginning of a long list of delicious things to eat in Guyana. If you can’t hop a flight to Georgetown the next best thing is an A Train to Lefferts Boulevard in Queens. Sure, they call it “Little Guyana” but big personalities and big hearts are waiting.

Remember, food is therapy.

Travel is like taking a cold shower for your soul. The brain fires, the pupils dilate, you stop worrying about the small stuff. Plonking tortillas into a steaming bowl of birria or waiting in line in a cloud of pepper chicken smoke snaps you out of the BS we all create in our head. Hey, these things don’t even have to happen in Jalisco or Kingston, they might be across town or across the state.

Seek it out.

West INDIAN FOOD TOUR!! Trini and Guyanese Food in Orlando, Florida!!

???? JON:
???????? SINGH’S:
???????? LEGENDS:
???????? BAKEWELL:

During my quick road trip to Orlando, I hit up a several Caribbean spots since I was craving the food after my trip to Trinidad and Tobago! Come with me on my West Indian food tour, where I try Trini and Guyanese food!

Joining me was my friend Jon, a.k.a. DJ Jon Jat, who would be taking me to have West Indian food at spots all over the city!

???? MY TRAVEL/FOOD BLOG:
???? DAVID’S BEEN HERE MERCH:

We started at Singh’s, a Trinidadian spot where we’d get to have some doubles and aloo pies! In the back, we met Angie, who showed us the cooks frying baras, curry for boneless chicken, and more!

After adding the chicken and chadon beni, it cooks for 30 minutes. Elsewhere, they were filling, rolling out, and grilling dal puri. I tried to do one myself!

They have tons of options: mac & cheese, Trini chow mein, jerk chicken, baked chicken, peas and rice, chana, dal, lo mein, egg balls, bacalao, beef curry, oxtail, curry chicken, curry shrimp, pulao, aloo pie, and more. It was a fusion of Indian, Chinese, and Caribbean cultures!

The doubles had a fluffy bara and sweet tamarind. Adding pepper sauce added a ton of spice! Jon’s aloo pie with beef. My aloo pie only contained chana, and adding tamarind made it sweet and savory!

I had a refreshing banana solo with it. Next, the dal puri was great with the shrimp curry. The oxtail was so tender it fell apart. It was great to mix everything together! The flavors and textures were unreal!

Next, we drove 10 minutes to Legends Resto & Lounge for some Chinese and Guyanese food. In the back, they showed us how they make their pineapple fried rice with shrimp and pork, lamb fried rice, lo mein, pepper lamb, pepper shrimp, and roast pork!

The roast pork and the sauce took me right back to my time in China. It was sweet and tangy! Meanwhile, the flavors of the pineapple had permeated the pineapple fried rice. It was too good!

The pepper shrimp were also massive and juicy. The pepper lamb was saucy and almost like the pork in terms of flavor, and the flavors in the lo mein blew me away.

I’d never seen lamb fried rice in my life, but it was unreal. It was so unique. I loved the short grain rice, the sauce, and the peppers. It wasn’t very spicy, but the sauce was very glazy. The fried rice dishes here were unbelievable!

Next, we drove back toward Singh’s to Bakewell Food Court, a Guyanese bakery that sells plait bread, sweets, tamarind balls, sugar cakes, and more.

There, Steve told us that it’s a food court concept and sells everything you could possibly want, from pizza and chicken to curries to sweets and breads!

We ordered a cassava pone and a salara. The cassava pone was a cassava cake, while the salara looked like a fluffy, sticky cake with sugar syrup on the outside and coconut on the inside.

The salara was layered and super sweet! It was like a coconut cinnamon roll, but with coconut. The cassava pone wasn’t as sweet, but was more like a banana bread. It would have been great with some ice cream on top!

Little Guyana - NYC

A walk along Liberty Avenue in Little Guyana (Queens’ Richmond Hill).

This area of New York City contains a sizable Guyanese population. Guyanese in NYC are the second-largest foreign-born group in Queens, behind the Chinese.

We had a double at Anil's Roti shop, which was outrageously delicious. Then lunch at Pearl Restaurant for some Guyanese-Chinese (Jerk Chicken over Lo Mein). And for home, we waited in line for quite some time to pick up some goodies at Sybil's Bakery, including Guyanese patties (beef and chicken) and coconut drops. Absolutely everything from Sybil’s was phenomenal and worth every second waiting. September 2021.

CARIBBEAN CUISINE IN QUEENS

South Richmond Hill in Queens, New York City, is a blend of Guyanese, Trinidadian, Indian and Indo-Caribbean cultures. The neighborhood is diverse and friendly. And the food is extraordinarily good.

MORE INFORMATION/DIRECTIONS:
Richmond Hill is in the New York City borough of Queens and is pretty easy to get to from most locations.

You want to get on the A subway line. WALKS NY recommends that you take the train all the way to the end, Lefferts Blvd/Ozone Park.

Be careful not to get the wrong A-train and land up in Far Rockaway/JFK! The line splits at ROCKAWAY BLVD - be aware to catch the Lefferts Blvd/Ozone Park-bound A-train.

• When you leave the station at LEFFERTS BLVD., you will be on Liberty Avenue, the main shopping/eating area in South Richmond Hills.

• We recommend continuing east on Liberty Avenue (the street numbers will increase) until you almost hit Van Wyck Expressway. If you don’t want to walk, you can also hop on the east-bound Q112 bus, and use your Metrocard.

• At 132nd Street and 133rd Street are two excellent eateries, Singh’s Roti Shop & Bar and Sybil’s Bakery respectively.

• After a good lunch, we suggest walking back, westwards along Liberty Avenue – there will be a lot to see; grocery stores that sell the most amazing Caribbean groceries and fresh vegetables, butchers, fish shops, and you could even have dessert at one of the other Caribbean Bake Shops.

• You can also meander north - you don't have to stay on Liberty Avenue the whole time. South Richmond Hill stretches 5 blocks north, to Atlantic Avenue.

• Once you’ve seen enough, you can catch the A train heading west at 104th St-Oxford, which is the southwestern border of South Richmond Hill

Happy rambling!

Eating INDIAN CHINESE FOOD in Queens with MY COUSIN Paulina!! NYC

???? PAULINA:
???????? TANGRA ASIAN FUSION:
???????? SHI KAI & JOY:

While I had explored quite a bit of Indian food so far on my trip to New York City, I hadn’t had much Indo-Chinese food. I decided to remedy that by heading out to Queens to eat some of this savory and unique fusion food. Come with me as I try Indian Chinese food in Queens, NYC!

For this epic food adventure, I linked up with my cousin Paulina to take her to Tangra Asian Fusion, which serves delicious Indo-Chinese food! Indo-Chinese cuisine originates in the city of Kolkata, West Bengal, India. Chinese people who immigrated to Kolkata brought their food with them, but started making them using Indian ingredients and spices!

✈️ CHECK OUT MY TRAVEL BLOG:
???? DAVID’S BEEN HERE MERCH:

The owners of the restaurant are from Kolkata and Darjeeling. They make everything from chow to momos, which are dishes I’ve enjoyed in northeast India! The restaurant is named after the Tangra region in East Kolkata, which was home to many people of Hakka Chinese origin.

Inside, it looked like a traditional Chinese restaurant. We met with Shi Kai, Yulan, and Ina, and then headed into the kitchen to meet Chef Peter. He made us some Tangra Masala Soup, chicken lollipops, mango lassi!

The Tangra Masala Soup is like an egg drop soup with sriracha, chicken, shrimp, cilantro, and tofu, and the lollypop chicken is a chicken wing where they remove the second bone, push all the meat to one end, and batter and deep-fry it.

The mango lassi was tasty and not too thick, with fresh pieces of mango on top. The soup had the perfect amount of spice. It’s tangy without being overbearing, and is full of flavor. The lightly fried chicken lollipops came with a creamy orange sauce and was crispy and herbal. It was so good!

Back in the kitchen, they made us a few more dishes, including a sweet and spicy Georgia chicken with sesame seeds; chili chicken with ginger, garlic, and onions; fusion tacos with chicken; gobi salt and pepper; a sweet and spicy Szechwan paneer, Tangra masala fried rice with shrimp, and chicken momos with green chutney.

I learned that chilies, garlic, and ginger are the main ingredients in Indo-Chinese cuisine! First, we jumped on the fusion tacos, which contained an incredible tzatziki sauce that made my mouth water!

Next were the momos with cilantro chutney that was almost like a Mexican salsa. Next were the Thai basil noodles with chicken, shrimp, and beef. I could smell the chilies in it! I loved the chewy and refreshing glass noodles and spring onion! They weren’t too spicy, either!

Then, we jumped on the Georgia chicken, which contained a lot of cinnamon! We also tried a mojito with mint. Then, we tried the fried cauliflower with chilies and the tangra masala fried rice. The rice contained chilies, egg, peas, onions, and shrimp and was pretty mild.

The chili chicken had a dry sauce and contained chili seeds. It was really tasty! Then, we tried the Szechwan paneer, which is cubed cottage cheese. It’s dense and the cheese balances otu the spice level of the Szechwan masala.

We ended our meal with chai kulfi with cardamom and saffron, and rose kulfi. The chai one was amazing and also contained cinnamon. The rose contained raisins and was a little fruity. They were both amazing! The chai reminded me of a coffee ice cream!

People Wait In 100 Degree Heat For This! | Guyanese Food in New York ????????

Ox Tail. Fried Yucca Dumplings. Black Pudding.

This is not your average buffet. On a day I set out to find some Trini cooking I stumbled into a Guyanese joint in Crown Heights. Guyana is one of those countries perched up at the top right of South America, a place you hear next to nothing about. Evidentially a place with delicious food.

As the woman behind the counter walked me through menu items, a regular walked in to complain he comes two days a week and she wouldn't give him her number. “Come seven days I’ll give you my number”, a classic lunch line quip that has the whole place chuckling.

The rice and peas were comforting, the brown gravy from the oxtail sweet and glistening. It had all the trappings of a good meal. Most of all, the cook cared, with their pride for their country on the line.

Episode Intel:

$3 West Indies Chicken Paradise ????????

Stumbling upon a good meal is about observing your surroundings. There are certain beacons of hope for a delicious, comforting plate of something. Around blue-collar work, churches, hospitals and wherever you see cabbies lined up, there’s never bad food far away. Goody’s West Indies Chicken & BBQ is the type of place that fits the bill. A couple of auto-body shops and a baptist church flank a wind-blown runway to the front door. When inside, the first indication something is going on is the FedEx worker, those who work delivery routes know where the good road food is. Goody’s has jerk chicken, brown stewed chicken, fried chicken, collard greens and cabbage, all the makings of honest cooking. I went for the oxtail, mac n’ cheese and fried plantains. Sometimes asking yourself “Is this area going to have good food?” beats any overwhelming google search. Remember to keep your head up and if you see some signs in the surrounding area, strike while the fryer is hot.

COLOMBIAN FOOD TOUR of Jackson Heights!! Arepas, Tamal & Tinto | Queens, NYC

???? DIANA:
✈️ CHECK OUT MY TRAVEL BLOG:

As many of you probably already know, I’m a lover of all different types of cuisines. From Indian to Mediterranean to Ghanaian to Puerto Rican, I love a good meal. And when you’re in arguably the biggest melting pot in the world—New York City—it’s all at your fingertips. Come with me as I go on an epic Colombian food tour of Queens, New York!

For this adventure, I met up with my friend Diana, who is from Colombia and lives in Jackson Heights, Queens. Jackson Heights is a super diverse neighborhood where roughly 300 different languages and dialects are spoken!

???? DAVID’S BEEN HERE MERCH:

We started at Cositas Ricas, a popular traditional Colombian-style diner where we started with some tintico, or a small black Colombian coffee. It tasted almost like an Americano. Colombians drink several of them per day! They also have a bar there!

Then, we jumped on the Desayuno Montañero, or Mountain Feast. It contains eggs, hash browns, arroz con frijoles, fried plantains, chicharron, some picante sauce, and an arepa. The chicharrones were crunchy and fatty!

Next, we put some eggs and the spicy sauce on the arepa. I loved the crumbly white cheese on the thin and crispy corn arepa. The vegetables in the red beans and rice where also great! I loved the green scallions in it and the chorizo on the side.

The maduro, or sweet plantains, practically melted in my mouth. It’s a big meal, so I suggest splitting it with someone!

Next, we walked to La Pequeña Colombia, the oldest Colombian restaurant in the city. It’s a more formal restaurant and has Colombian music playing inside. We started with hot chocolate and white cheese. You put the cheese in the hot chocolate and wait for it to melt!

We also had agua panela, or sugarcane water, which is super sweet. It was a little different from the sugarcane juice I get in India. You can add the cheese to it, too. Both are eaten as a midday snack!

My cheese didn’t really melt, but I loved it with the cacao-rich hot chocolate! It was a unique combination.

Then, we had a huge tamal, a mini arepa, and empanadas. Colombian empanadas are made with corn flour, and are different from other types of empanada. These contained shredded beef. They came with a spicy green sauce and salsa rosada, which is mayo mixed with ketchup.

These tamales are wrapped in banana leaves. This one contained pork, nice seasonings, and carrots. It was so chunky and dense. It’s a common brunch meal on Sundays!

We continued down the restaurant strip, where you’ll see lots of street vendors. We continued into a quiet suburb-like area and walked 5 minutes to La Arepa Lady. They made us two different arepas!

I had some passionfruit juice while Diana enjoyed lulo juice. Mine was so refreshing and the lulo was very sweet! Next was black coffee and 4 different arepas: stuffed, choclo, sweetened, and arepa de tela.

They came with pineapple, rosada, garlic, hot, and la lechera sauces. The first one was sweet and reminded me of a Venezuelan cachapa. I loved the spicy sauce and pineapple sauce on it.

The sweet arepa with chorizo was good, but the first one was still my favorite. The Arepa de Tela was amazing with the pork and it had a soft but crunchy texture.

Finally, the stuffed arepa contained meat and cheese. The beef was tender and moist, and the arepa was soft and doughy. It was a meat and cheese overload! It was so delicious. The pineapple sauce was a game changer!

Eating INDIAN FOOD with MARK WIENS for 24 HOURS in Phoenix, Arizona!!

???? MARK WIENS:
???????? THE DHABA:
???????? CURRY CORNER:
???????? DESI GAADI:

In October of 2021, I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to meet up with my good friend Mark Wiens! He and I have known each other for nearly a decade and planned an epic, 3-day food tour of the city. Come with us on our first adventure as I eat Indian food with Mark Wiens for 24 hours in Phoenix, Arizona!

Mark lived in the Phoenix area a long time ago, so exploring with him would be a treat! Our first food adventure kicked off at The Dhaba Restaurant & Market Place. It was very elegant and reminiscent of India!

???? DAVID’S BEEN HERE MERCH:

After watching the cooks make garlic naan, biryani, seekh kebabs, butter chicken, malai kofta, and more, we started with pani puri at our table. The crunch, masala, and herbs were perfect, and it was more savory than sweet.

We also had dahi puri, which is a version with yogurt instead of pani. Adding some pani made it sweet and spicy! Next were chicken seekh kebabs, served sizzler-style, with garlic naan. I loved the caramelized onions!

The butter chicken had a thick, creamy gravy, and the chicken kadai was rich and buttery, with huge chunks of chicken. Both of them with the naan are matches made in heaven! The malai kofta was crumbly and nutty, with an amazing gravy with cashews in it.

The nutty and sweet Kashmiri naan was also incredible. I loved the cardamom! Next was the fragrant chicken biryani with garlic, onions, cumin, cardamom, and ginger. Adding raita made it creamy!

Then, we enjoyed mango, rose, and salted lassis! The mango was creamy while the salted was unique and full of spices! We followed that with a creamy rice dessert called kheer with raisins, dried fruit, almonds, and pistachios, and some masala chai!

Then, we drove 3 minutes to Curry Corner to try some Pakistani food! In the kitchen, they made garlic naan, seekh kebabs, dal, tandoori chicken, chapli kebabs, nihari, and masala fries with chicken tikka masala sauce, feta, and cilantro. It was salty, creamy, and unique!

First was the nihari, a rich beef stew with ginger, oil, chilies, and cilantro, with garlic naan. It’s rich, nutty, flavorful, and still subtle, and the beef is unbelievably tender. I loved it with the cheese naan.

The monstrous chapli kabab had tomatoes cooked into it and was so rich without being overbearing with the spices. I also loved the potatoes, seekh kebabs, and chicken in the mixed platter. The tandoor gives it a juicy texture and smoky flavor!

The chicken biryani was so colorful, fragrant, and fluffy, and full of turmeric, saffron, bay leaves, cloves, peppercorns, and coriander. It had some spice to it! Then, we finished with a thicker kheer with pistachios in a biodegradable clay bowl.

Finally, we took a two-hour break and then drove 45 minutes to Desi Gaadi, a food truck in North Phoenix. They sell Indian street food, including samosa chaat, goat pepper fry, papdi chaat, punugulu, masala vada, chicken pakoda, and more!

We went with the goat pepper fry, samosa chaat, samosas, and punugulu. The goat pepper fry came with raw onions and was so tender it fell apart! It’s one of my favorite dishes I’ve had in a long time!

The samosa chaat was full of onions, mint chutney, sev, chickpeas, and yogurt. Then, we had the punugulu, which are crispy fritters made from dosa batter that you dip into peanut chutney. It tasted just like a dosa! The onion samosas were bursting with flavor!

What an unbelievable experience eating Indian food with Mark Wiens in Phoenix, Arizona!

Liberty Avenue, Queens - Mini Guyana and Mini Trini

New York through my eyes - If you ask anyone where they want to go in New York you will hear about the empire state building, Time Square or the statue of Liberty. This is what the Big Apple is known for, but do you know how multi cultural New York is? Queens which is another major borough of New York housing various communities. I want to show you the Indo Caribbean community of Liberty Avenue in Queens. Experience Indian cultures with Caribbean influence..this is New York through my window.
