Join us for an exciting Astoria Food Tour in the heart of Broadway! We will be exploring the diverse and delicious food scene of this vibrant neighborhood, visiting 2 or 3 cozy cafes (within walking distance) before heading to the highly-rated Aliada Restaurant for dinner.

First Stop : Cafe Turkiye Grill

Cafe Turkiye Grill in Astoria is a cozy cafe that offers a wide variety of Turkish delicacies, including their famous Turkish coffee and savory pides (spinach/cheese pies). We can also try a selection of mezze plates, such as hummus or haydari and pita breads, making it the perfect spot for light and delicious snacks.

Second Stop: New York Pao De Queijo

This cafe specializes in traditional Brazilian delicacies, such as their famous pao de queijo (cheese bread). In addition to their signature dish, the cafe also offers a variety of mouth-watering appetizers, including coxinha (chicken croquettes), pastel de queijo (cheese pastries), and empadas (savory meat pies).
