Queens Comfort – Treat Yo Self!

If you find yourself in New York on a quiet night that you’d like to add a little flavor to, I have to insist that you try Queens Comfort. No, this isn’t the first time I’ve written about this particular restaurant. Why am I writing again? Because… It’s… That… Good.

This little gem of Astoria sits right on 30th avenue and Steinway street, only 3 stops from 59th and Lex, Manhattanites! Well worth the trip for these:

Fried Green Tomatoes

Forever Freakin’, always representing.

We began our meal with the Fried Green Tomatoes, a southern favorite. These were crunchy and served piping hot with homemade lemon pepper ranch. Remember: It’s BYOB! So we B’d a snobby organic IPA, but covered it with a Freaker, lest the hipsters see us not drinking PBR. Jared was feeling extra country so he indulged in this hot mess, the “Ring of Fire” burger:

“Ring of Fire” Burger (with fried jalapeños and sriracha)

He asked for it medium rare and the server replied, “Okayyy, dude, I’ll write that on the ticket, but the kitchen sorta does its own thing, kaayyyy?” Jared says it was the best burger he’s ever had. Since for once we did not go halfsies on meals, I was elated to be free to order the one menu item I’ve had my eye on since my first visit to Queens Comfort, the Bacon Scallion Mac and Cheese:

Bacon Scallion Mac and Cheese — Voted #1 in NYC

Hot damn if this isn’t the best macaroni and cheese I’ve ever tasted (and New Yorkers agree)! If you’ll remember, on our last visit to Queens Comfort, we enjoyed a Meatloaf Mac and Cheese. It was delicious, but THIS mac and cheese was another level of yum. It’s not the kind of meal you can have every night, but if you’re feeling particularly indulgent, you simply cannot do better than this. Who’s been? What’s your favorite menu item?
