Humitas at Kabab Cafe in Astoria

adamandeve Aug 14, 2006 01:40 AM

Does anyone know if the humitas at the Middle Eastern place are a standard offering? Are they Chilean humitas? Are they GOOD humitas? And just for the sake of curiosity, why does he offer humitas at all?

    They have been there for most of my visits there. I have no idea if they're Chilean or authentic but they are very good, one of my favorite items. As for why Ali offers them? Well, he's a man of the world!

      I think they are Argentinian. Ali's ex-wife is from Argentina, and he learned a lot from his ex-mother-in-law.

        Yes, that makes sense.

        The only time I've seen them unavailable in years is when he has sold out.
