2017: Queens Voted The Thirsty Koala Best Healthy Eatery!
The Thirsty Koala
35-12 Ditmars Blvd., Astoria, NY 11105. 718-626-5430
This Australian-inspired Astoria eatery reigns supreme when it comes to healthy eating. This restaurant, at home on Ditmars Boulevard, boasts a menu of mainly gluten-free and veggie options, all of which showcase local, natural and organic products. Its small goods are chemical-free, from local artisans who cure and smoke their meats naturally. The eatery – previously voted the number one Australian restaurant in all five boroughs – also makes its own goat and farmers’ cheeses using organic milk. It’s something different, for sure, but it’s definitely something delicious. And they’ve got the accolades to prove it.
