Last week I had the pleasure to finally go on Jeff Orlick's Midnight Street Food Crawl. I feel bad for rarely going to Queens, so when I saw that Jeff was going to do a crawl, I quickly jumped on it. He runs his tours like a group of friends just hanging out, walking around, and eating good food. He has his route that he does but there's also room for spontaneity. Some times things catch his eyes and we'll wander off and end up chatting with the cart owner. Spontaneity, it's a great thing to have on a food crawl. Yes, he's our tour guide...the leader but he's also exploring the neighborhood along with the rest of us.
Here's the list of food/vendors that we visited, thanks to Jeff Orlick. Tacos al pastor from Maravillas Restaurant Tamal Oaxaqueno verde with pork and a tamal de rajas from 90th Street Tamale Cart Arroz con huevo tacos and horchata from Tia Julia Truck Huitlacoche quesadillas from Coyote Dormilon cart Esquites outside La Flor deli Morcilla from Ecuadorian cart at Warren St/Roosevelt Ave Colada Morada from Pique y Pase Ecuadorian truck Torta Puebla (torta with a chicken cutlet) from Tortas Neza in Juan Bar Guava drink with chia seeds at Ecuadorian health food store Patacon from Chimi Express truck "Carne" with moro and plantains from Los Amigos Chimichurri
