Derric L. for Queens Tastes of the World

We recently went on Jeff Orlick's "Tastes of the World" tour in Queens. The tour was true to its word and a wonderful experience. Jeff personally took a small group of us (four adults and two children) to ten restaurants and food vendors on and near Roosevelt Ave between 72nd and 83rd Streets. Jeff was on a first name basis with many of the proprietors and had them explain the dishes that we were trying and also found answers to any questions that we, the tourists, had as well. Stops along the four hour walking tour included foods from ten countries including the Phillipines, Nepal, Tibet, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Mexico, Equador, Columbia and Albania. The tour also included a number of local markets. Jeff made sure that the tour was casual and tailored to our interests. It was a great experience and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who has a interest in ethnic foods and off the beaten path jewels.
