What you'll do

I’ve led ethnojunkets through most of New York City's ethnic neighborhoods at one time or another; we’ve eaten our way through the Chinatowns of Manhattan, Flushing, and Sunset Park, enjoyed Filipino, Indian, Bangladeshi, and South American treats in Jackson Heights and Woodside, and prowled around Staten Island’s Sri Lankan area – to name but a few. It is said that Queens is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world. Its Elmhurst neighborhood reflects that characteristic in its own microcosm of Latinx and Asian populations, and on this tour, we’ll zoom in still further for a look at the sheer diversity of its Asian community and their culinary treasures. On this Ethnic Eats in Elmhurst adventure, we’ll savor goodies from Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Tibet, Bangladesh, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, and elsewhere in Southeast Asia and parts of China. We’ll enjoy egg custard buns that gush when we cut into them (a photo op for sure!), savory snacks that are practically addictive, unique Himalayan dumplings, exotic noodle dishes, sweet yogurt comfort food from South Asia, delicious Chinese breakfast fare that may come as a surprise, Taiwanese street food, and lots more!

Rich

Call me Ethnojunkie. I live to absorb ethnic cultures – the music, the languages, and especially the cuisines. Most of all, I enjoy turning folks on to flavors they’ve never experienced. That’s what my ethnojunkets are all about: food-focused walking tours through NYC’s many ethnic enclaves. As a licensed Sightseeing Guide and an inveterate storyteller, this is my passion. Want to learn more? Check out my website, ethnojunkie.com, follow me @ethnojunkie on Instagram or on my ethnojunkie Facebook page, or write to me directly at rich@ethnojunkie.com.
