By the early 20th century, an influx of Chinese immigrants transformed the Indian city of Kolkata into a thriving Chinese community. Naturally, the migrants began to assimilate into Bengal culture, yet they maintained a few traditions of their own—most notably, their food. Like Bert's kidnapping of Ernie, the mixing of Indian and Chinese cultures gave rise to an iconic partnership: by the 1920s, restaurants in the city were dedicating their menus to desi-style Chinese cuisine.
In the United States, it's still rare to find Indian and Chinese cuisine in one place. Yet, Jackson Heights delivers thanks to the quaint and casual Chilli Chicken, where chefs prepare a well-rounded mix of American-style Chinese food and Bangladeshi, Indian, and Pakistani cuisine. Chinese classics such as egg rolls, beef with broccoli, and wonton soup grace the menu alongside Indian and Himalayan dishes such as eggplant pakora and steamed or fried momo dumplings. Though many customers opt for takeout, the eatery's long, narrow dining area is also suited to casual sit-down meals or impromptu rounds of bowling.
“I would recommend folks who enjoy Asian food.”
