While most people tend to make resolutions around January 1st, I make them all year round! In my opinion, resolutions are a great way to stay motivated and inspired to do better. The latest? I want to be a tourist in my own city!
With sunshine and comfy shoes on my side, yesterday I explored Astoria, Queens.
I quickly discovered the best part about Astoria. THE FOOD! Seriously, every type of cuisine you can possibly imagine is within walking distance. Home to a robust immigrant population (who are apparently all culinary geniuses), Queens is the greatest borough to explore yummy food of different cultures, throughout all its neighborhoods.
Traditionally, Astoria has been a predominantly Greek neighborhood. That is still quite apparent from the various Greek restaurants and small businesses, to the many beautiful Greek flags fluttering around.
But I was a woman on a mission for something very different than Greek food. My target?
Macaroni And Cheese Pancakes at Mom's.
Seriously, guys. It was so good. Plus, since I added berries on the side it was totally healthy.
The rest of my afternoon consisted of lots of walking and exploring through Astoria's many interesting streets, markets, and Astoria Park!
