My friend and I had a delicious South American lunch at Gabriel’s Cafe in uptown Kingston. I realized how much I miss South American food. When I lived in Astoria, I used to go to a great Columbian restaurant called Tierras Columbianas, and I used to love their grilled chicken with plantains. The menu at Gabriel’s Cafe features dishes from Columbia, Brazil, Venezuela, and Peru. I ordered the Chilean Pot Roast and my friend ordered the Columbian Platter. She ended up taking half of it home because she couldn’t finish it. My slow cooked pot roast was very tender and tasty. I really had a craving for plantains. I attempted to cook plantains at home last week, but they didn’t come out well. I guess it’s one of those dishes that looks simple to make, but it isn’t. Well, the plantains here are perfect! Gabriel’s is also open for breakfast and has salsa dancing on the weekends. (Follow their Facebook page for dance announcements and menu updates). Gabriel’s Cafe, 316 Wall Street, Kingston, NY (845) 338-7161
