This Sunday is the 2nd meeting of the Jackson Heights Food Group. We are going to experience Ecuadorian food at Hornado Ecuatoriano at 76th and Roosevelt in Jackson Heights.
Here is a selection from their menu. The original doesnt have descriptions, so it’s basically a crap shoot for gringos like me sometimes. With some help from my friends, we filled in the mysteries of the menu. Hope this helps understand what to order at an Ecuatorian restaurant.
If you are interested in coming this Sunday or joining the group, send me a message or comment.
