In Indonesian-Latino Comes to Jackson Heights, Edible Queens World’s Fare blogger Joe DiStefano describes his visit to a new Indonesian-Latino restaurant, Tropika Grill n’ Cafe, in Jackson Heights, Queens. Say what? Indonesian-Latino?
I only heard about the Gastronauts a couple of weeks ago. They’re an adventurous eating club based in New York City. An article in the NYTimes detailed their exploits, which consisted of a $50-70 per person multi-person dinner at an ethnic restaurant somewhere in the city. I applied to join via a form on their webpage as soon as I read the article and was accepted a few days later. About a week later the Gastronauts alerted members via email that the next dinner would be held in the Peruvian restaurant Urubamba in Jackson Heights, Queens.
