Jackson Heights Food Festival 2008 Wrap-up

Some humble beginnings


CANNELLE PATISERIE


LA FUSTA


TOMO SUSHI


KEBAB KING – They tamed down the kebabs for the general tastes. I was a bit disappointed. This was one of the three restaurants I was working with. The kid was really nice and worked very hard all day alone. He told me he has never had American food because it isn’t halal. I felt bad and thought there should be a halal burger joint somewhere. I forgot his name, it may have been Ricky.


UNCLE PETER’S


LETY’S BAKERY


MAMA’S EMPANADAS – “Great sign!”


Here was the public seating. There was over 2,000 people there this year. It was impressive. Hopefully next year will be even bigger.

I am trying to take a bigger part in the entire process next year. I was a little late in the game and only helped by putting up posters around town and working the day of the event setting up, helping out a few stands, and cleaning up. It was fun though.

Sammy’s Halal was supposed to be there, but the food carts couldn’t fit through the gates. too bad.
