Brilliant tour. The area of Queens where our tour took place is fascinating; MANY different cultures very tightly packed together. Jeff took us to places which we would never have found and would have found quite inaccessible. I really liked his style of asking the vendors about the foods and ordering off the cuff depending what we wanted to try. This wasn't a 'sit over there, your food will arrive' tour. This was more like 'right, here we are, this is an Ecuadorian bakery, it does great fried rice, shall we try some?'. We were always up at the counter with Jeff which was great. The places we visited weren't fixed; in fact there were loads we just dipped into unplanned; like a halal food truck with some amazing marinated meat and an elderly lady selling fresh tamales out of a steam bucket! It made the tour really exciting and it was nice to not know exactly where we were going. We tried LOTS of food; far more stops than any other food tour I've ever done. Particular highlights were watching momos get made in a tiny Tibetan kitchen, eating Nepalese thali in the tiniest food court in the world, an amazing shrimp cocktail made from a little stand in the back of a Mexican convenience store and an incredible Ecuadorian desert. Jeff obviously loves the area and has a huge depth of knowledge about the food and the people. His stories made the whole tour very interesting and he gave us a great recommendation for a craft beer bar afterwards; that was great Jeff the Maine Mo pale ale was awesome. All in all, superb, would HIGHLY food tour we've ever done and we've done a few both in the US and in the Far East.
