Queens is one of the most culturally diverse areas in New York. It is home to immigrants from all over the world making its population more foreign language speaking than native New Yorkers.
Immigrants from Russia, Poland, Venezuela, Honduras, China, India, Korea, Greece and more live in perfect harmony and only cook up a storm, palate-wise.
With cultural diversity comes culinary treasures. You could get typical New York grub anywhere but Queens harbors some of the best restaurants in New York City!
If you’re planning to visit, you could take the bus to New York from Philadelphia, DC, Syracuse and other main cities!
Here’s a list of some of the best restaurants in Queens:
1. Los Portales
25-08 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11105, USA
Go ahead, be the one to order a sandwich at a Mexican place! The burritos and chili bowls will tempt you but try the tortas here! A lightly toasted roll filled with beans, jalapenos, cheese and your choice of spiced mear fresh off the grill! This is one made-to-order dish you will not regret waiting for.
2. Spring Shabu Shabu
Dropping wafer thin cuts of meat in a deliciously spicy pork bone broth is what you should be doing this weekend at Spring Shabu Shabu. There are delicious buffet options available too! Nothing like a DIY Korean BBQ, is there?
3. Tamashii Ramen
2905 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11106, USA
The skillful and subtle art of making a delicious bowl of ramen is perfected at Tamashii Ramen! Pick from a light shio or flavourful shoyu broth to accompany the delicate noodles and your choice of protein.
