Tierra Sana

January 10, 2008 at 3:31 pm 3 comments

The new “Whole Foods Fusion” at the top of Queens Blvd. is going to be an organic cafe called Tierra Sana. It looks big, as the sign and storefront I noticed on 67th Ave. is a side entrance, with the main entrance just a few doors down from the Dunkin’ Donuts. All outward indicators (signs, facade) look very nice and upscale though I think there will be some confusion about the name given the graphicly convoluted nature of the “S” in “Sana” on the sign.

Interesting trend I’m noticing–more establishments that cater to the young/yuppies’ spawn and fewer that cater to the eastern European Jewish Orthodox community. Most kosher places in Forest Hills these days are owned and populated by Bukharians. This is a development that has been taking place for the past 15 years, but it has been more pronounced in the last 5 years. The religious Ashkinazi Jewish families, who always saw Forest Hills as a transitional point to the suburbs, seem to be bypassing the place more and more.

    Tierra Sana is my New Home! Tierra Sana is for everyone in the community it promtoes healthy eating with an awsome atmosphere. Theres no other place like this on Queens Blvd. I cant get enough of this TS and i dont consider myself a vegan. They showed me that you can make organic and vegitarian food taste great! The Best Part is its Affordable…Salads with there own homemade dressings, Toasted wraps, Stir fry, Brown rice with cilantro, Black bean with Sofrito, Soups i mean the list goes on and on. Everyone Should Check This Place Out!

    As a former Forest Hills (Orthodox) resident, you’re quite right about the changing demographics. Just this morning, while stopping for coffee at Dunkin Donuts, I noticed that they’re under the supervision of Orthodox Kasruth Supervision (Rabbi Harry Cohen), which to the adjoining frum communities is as good as no hechsher at all. The place is not Shomer Shabbos, so the Vaad of Queens probably will never touch it.

    Personally, I wish that K Roasters was still there!

    Had the Lentil Soup, it was great.. Home taste and filling. Just had to wait a bit longer than i would’ve liked. Atmosphere is great and the food was good. Price was good considering it is fresh ingredients….
