Meg and I finally got to meet our 3rd "joey" Tamara and she was awesome. Her and Ali go way back so we all sat around just stuffing our faces with pretty much whatever he threw in front of us and chit chatted for a couple of hours. What a great place. After a million plates of goodness, Meg and i trekked out to Lazizza (sp?) for some middle eastern sweets. Tamara had to head home to get set to leave today for California to visit her friend Zora-also another Astorian, who is recovering from a bigtime operation.
On our way back from getting sweets we ran into Mr. Happy Ali who promptly escorted us into Mombar (another place i've been wanting to go try). There he walked us through the museum of all handmade and interesting tables, tapestries and tiling. I think it's his brothers place? And his dad was there too. What nice folks. Then we tried to go on our merry way again only to stop in at Sabry's Seafood for a menu (cause again, i want to try them) and were offered some fresh warm bread to take with us! How funny!!! So thank yous were said and then time for home. All in all, i have to say that this little corner of Astoria is chock full of great food and sweet people. And now for the pics of the food... in no particular order or anything-just GOOOOOOD!
