Food for Thought

Food hunting in Queens is oddly reminiscent of playing Pokémon Go. Those who have never played it won’t appreciate the reference but this one from Indo Java Groceries in Elmhurst is a super rare Pokémon that many Queens foodies have been showing off in their collections. (All food Instagrammers must be mildly autistic.) I have finally caught it myself, and the famous yellow table is now part of my collection too. Believe the hype. It’s yummy. Hopefully they become popular enough to have a full-blown restaurant. When eating food that I’m not familiar with, I don’t ask questions because knowing what I’m eating conceptually can distort my experience. So, I don’t really know what I ate but it was tasty.
