Fiesta Latina
« on: May 19, 2008, 09:33:03 AM »
Anyone tried this restaurant?  I think it's officially Woodside, because it's on 61st and 37th, but we drive by it ALL the time and I'm curious...

I think Fiesta Latina is a Philippino restaurant.  I've never been, but it's been around for many years now.

Wait, are you sure you're not confusing it with the restaurant on the very next corner (heading west)?

Greentea, I'm thinking of the restaurant that's on 37th Avenue, somewhere in the high 50s, low 60s in Woodside.  Traveling from west to east, it would be on the southeast corner of the street and 37th Ave.   I could be wrong though. :-\

That's an odd name for a Filipino restaurant!  Are you confusing it with Krystal's Cafe?

Check out this Chowhounders reviews on Fiesta Latina.  It appears that it's a Peruvian restauarant:

Greentea and Prester, you're both right.  Not only did I confuse Fiesta Latina with Krystal's Cafe, but I was also thinking about the old Filipino restaurant on Roosevelt Ave. that was called Barrio Fiesta.
