There are several Indonesian food spots in Queens, but what better spot to try out a variety of dishes than an Indonesian food bazaar?
A few weeks ago, we trekked out to Long Island City to the Masjid al Hikmah mosque. About a dozen booths were planted around what looked to be the mosque parking lot. Down the center, was a long table. That’s where we sat after roaming the booths and sampling several dishes. Our favorites? The fried tofu, a rice noodle and fish soup, and the fabulous fish cakes. Best to eat those the second they emerge from their bath of boiling oil.
