We’ve been meaning to try Heights 167 for a while now and decided it was the time. Heights 167 describes itself as a Latin fusion restaurant, representing the food diversity of Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC. The 167 refers to the number of languages spoken in Jackson Heights. The restaurant is in the strip of stores on Route 35 S, just south of Brave New World.
We started with the Cubano Sliders and Pork Tamales (a special). Both were delicious.
For mains, The Sprout had the HEIGHTS BIRRIA PLATTER - Slow cooked Brisket and Short Ribs served with rice and beans and a side of tortillas, and consommé.
That’s one reason we decided to go last night. It was the probably the last Saturday we’ll do out to eat, with very rare exceptions that aren’t Bennie friendly, until September. Heights 167 would probably not be a big draw but getting OTB is.
It really has already started. Two weekends ago the weather was glorious and I was out on the boardwalk here in Asbury Park and muttering “they’re baaaaaack.” It’s the price of living here… My town is busy at least on the weekends year-round, but it gets insane now.
Hopefully then, the season is upon you for getting together with friends and family for backyard barbecues and the like. I’m ready for sure.
ETA: I’ve learned so much this week, including that people in the “know” disapprove of toasted bagels. lol
