    7 tongues in 9 mouths. Trick or treat? For the 9 of us, definitely a treat! Taqueria Coatzingo's meltingly tender steamed tongue, thickly sliced against the grain, served three ways, in tacos covered in creamy avocado sauce and on platters with verdant salsa verde and rusty salsa roja, was a favorite. Delhi Heights' Nepalese jibro fry, ordered extra spicy, was more like extra tough, while Phayul's Tibetan chele khatsa tangled thin slices of soft tongue with peppers and onions. Argentine La Portena gave us tongue, cold and hot, with a garlicky salad and braised with vegetables. We had plenty of tongue in our cheeks, but found room for an off-theme offal, spicy tripe. Namaste's dropa khatsa and its achar, pickled daikon and cucumber, scooped straight out of refrigerated trays, were the spiciest dishes in our adventure in Jackson Heights. Excuse me while I take a double dose of Lipitor.

    To have tongue dish is a rarity and have it cooked in so many different ways was an experience. Thanks Sally for your energetic organizing the treat.

    Hello every one,

    I would love to join you but I am recovering from recent surgery. I will be off the grid for 10 -20 days. I look forward to seeing you all again.

    Until we get long daylight again I'm going to stick to Manhattan destinations as they come up. I've been to Jackson Hts (for Indian food, wonderful grocery stores) and it was a joy but I don't know the area well enough to navigate it after dark. Have fun!

    Sorry, but approximately how much walking is expected....I stretched a hamstring.

      Each location should be a few blocks apart. However, the plan may change due to the weather or the availability of beef tongue at the Himalayan eateries on the day.

      October 17, 2013

  • Stan W.

    Is this a one restaurant deal or will we be sampling different places?

      I am not aware of a Himalayan-Argentine-Mexi­can restaurant in Jackson Heights or anywhere else, although the Jackson Heights Food Court did attempt something close to that when it first opened. The plan is to taste the tongue from three different eateries.
