UMAMI MART MATSURI FESTIVAL
Taste of Jackson Heights was last weekend and some of us went on a little Umamiventure to Queens on Saturday afternoon. After attending "Taste of Times Square" and "Taste of the Village" in recent years, I have to say I like how they do it in the Heights! Very low key. Only about 8 restaurants had tables in the garden at a church, and tastings were only a dollar or 2. There was food from Argentina, Burma and India, to name a few. Here are a few pictures from our afternoon...



Mango Lassi


Burmese Banana Cake
