Christos Steak House, Astoria, NYC

Christos Steak House, Astoria, NYC

 

Christos Steakhouse on Urbanspoon

 

Christos Steak House in Astoria is a great spot for steak and more. Paying homage to its neighborhood, the talented Chef Mina Newman offers signature Greek appetizers and sides to go with an extensive selection of prime-aged meats and seafood.

The style of dishes served is very classic. The menu is rather extensive with many options, which is rather unusual for a steakhouse. I really enjoyed the grilled shrimp, seared scallop and the Christos salad as appetizers. The Lobster mashed potatoes is a huge favorite and comes loaded with chunks of lobster meat.

The service and ambiance at Christos is very pleasant. It’s no wonder that it is a local favorite in Queens.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Ribeye Cap

 

Balsamic Roasted Figs

 

Roquefort Broccoli

 

Grilled Shrimp

 

Seared Scallop

 

Christos Salad

 

Almond Crusted Goat Cheese and Endive Salad

 

Surf and Turf

Broccoli Rabe with Roasted Garlic

 

Lobster Mashed Potatoes

If you are craving Greek food, then there is no better neighborhood to hit than Astoria in Queens.

Amongst the teeming numbers of Greek restaurants, Chef-Owner Ardian Skenderi’s Taverna Kyclades seems to be one of the more popular spots, offering the freshest seafood at very affordable prices. At peak times the waits can be very long but the food is very worth it. Read the rest of this entry

THE KING OF FALAFEL AND SHAWARMA, ASTORIA, NYC

THE KING OF FALAFEL AND SHAWARMA, ASTORIA, NYC

King of Falafel & Shawarma on Urbanspoon


MY RATINGS FOR THIS MEAL

Food: ☆☆☆

Service: ☆☆☆

Cost: $

I recommend: Falafel

 

And the winner of this years Vendy Awards is……….

Farez “Freddy” Zeideia’s – the King of Falafel and Shawarma.



I really do agree with the king of falafel part. Freddy fries up an unbeatable, oblong shaped falafel, which is absolutely delicious. Its crisp on the outside and the filling is perfectly spiced.

The best part is that you get to try a free falafel while you wait for your order to be cooked up.

Freddy’s halal cart serves up quite a variety of shawarma, falafel and chicken rice combinations.

I really liked the basmati rice that comes with their rice platters. It is very nicely flavored and the pickled turnips that they add to their salad really adds great bite.

All the people working at the King of Falafel and Shawarma cart are super friendly and even though it is a food cart, it has a nice homey, community feel to it.

So if you are in and around Astoria, do make sure that you go and pay homage to the king!


Here is some of what we ate:



FALAFEL




CHICKEN AND RICE PLATE




SHAWARMA PLATE
