March Food Group - Mi Estrella - A Chino-Latino Experience
« on: March 06, 2009, 07:56:19 PM »
March's Food Group will be at Mi Estrella (formerly Grande Estrella)
88-19 Roosevelt Ave.
Jackson Heights, NY 11372

Should be very interesting... another stimulating atmosphere for the group.

The more people we get, the better sampling of food we can see. The space is pretty large, seems set up for families and large groups. The people working there seem serious about there business. I like that. Check out the other thread dealing with the topic  as linked below.

This was fusion before marketers created the word. Read about it below

Let me know if you are interested!

Most likely March 22nd at 6.15pm ... unless this doesn't work out for people who are interested. So let me know!

oh yeah, their takeout menu is totally nonchalant. First, there's no prices. Second, it has the name of the prior business. For some reason it's Mi Estrella now, not Grande Estrella. Taxes?
I think this will probably be a spin on what I'm used to.

Is this open to anyone? I am new to JH and see lots of interesting places to eat, but sadly have no friends in the neighborhood. I would love to find out which restaurants are the best and try them out

I went to Sripithai in woodside a few eeks ago with a freind and we were perplexed by the hours-long liones formed outside a fast food place with a big chicken mascot on the corner of rooselvelt and 64th. Does anyone know what that is?

Karen, the monthly food group is open to anyone.  Here's a quote from Jeffsayyes, the JHL member that's been organizing the monthly group meetings:

The more people we get, the better sampling of food we can see.

The long line you and your friend witnessed was probably for Jolibee, a new fast food Filipino restaurant.  It opened recently, so that may explain the line.  Here's some more info on it:

OK, thanks. I think I will be able to go around 7.

Oh, Jolibee, it's a bee, not a chicken :)   that makes sense

Karen - This is exactly why the group exists!
It's an issue going around in Jackson Heights it seems like... lots of great places to eat, but I think places to freshly meet people are limited. soooooo.... Come and meet some JHers!

I will try my hardest to come too! I don't really know anyone in the neighborhood so it'd be nice to meet some new folks.

Looking good - We have more than a few new people coming this week. Somehow people are finding me through my site. All Jackson heights people.
There is definitely a need in this neighborhood for making friends. Hopefully this is helping.

We will probably need to get a whole table at Mi Estrella - so more people the better, we won't run out of space. Plus, it should be a nice day, so hopefully no one will mind taking a short walk. Hope to see anyone who is interested there!

I think I am going to try to come tonight and bring 1 or 2 people.  Is it too late to join in?

Thanks everyone for coming. We had our biggest group yet and we learned about an important part of our neighborhood. Look out for next month's coming soon.
