As I walked along Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills last week, sweat
pouring from my brow as the hot sun beat down, I stumbled across a quaint little
delicatessen/restaurant tucked away on 67th Road.
Its name was simple, yet enticingOld Fashion Cooking. With the
temperature climbing higher and higher and my stomach getting emptier and emptier, I
decided to give this place a chance.
Old Fashion Cooking, a kosher deli in which customers can either take
food out or dine in, offers great food at very reasonable prices.
Had it not been so hot, I might have taken my lunch across the street
to Federhoff Square, where trees provide shade for patrons stopping by to take a load off.
Yet unable to leave the comfort of the air-conditioned dining area, I
decided to eat in. Starting off with a coke ($1.25), I began with a bowl of chicken noodle
soup ($2.95) as an appetizer. The heaping serving of soup, which came with a side of
bread, was both delicious and filling.
From there I moved on to a hot pastrami sandwich ($7.95) that was
served up in minutes and came complete with cole slaw and pickles. With mounds of meat
stacked between two slices of bread, I was barely able to finish. Overall, Old Fashion
Cooking is everything one could ever want in a deligood food for fair prices. If
youre ever in the area, stop by and give it a chanceyou wont regret it.
