3 New Restaurants To Try on Long Island


If you’re looking for something fun, fresh, and delicious, check out Tiki Poke.

This trendy, cute new restaurant features healthy Hawaiian cuisine with an emphasis on poke bowls, which are rice bowls with a Pacific Islander twist— so if you’re a fan of chipotle, come give this a try. Its popular dishes include the aloha bowl, the dragon bowl, and the sweet chili tofu bowl (each $13.95). Tiki Poke also serves the oh-so-popular bubble tea, whether it’s milk tea ($5.25) or fresh fruit tea ($5.75). Head over on Wednesday for their buy-one-get-one deal.

Tiki Poke is available for dine-in or curbside pickup every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

1040 S. Broadway #12, Hicksville, 516-595-7878, tikipokeus.com 


If you’re chasing that perfect birria taco, La Taqueria is the place to be.

Fans of authentic Mexican cuisine went crazy for this restaurant’s original location in Hicksville. Luckily for us, the owners have decided to expand to a new location in Syosset as well. The more burritos, the better. This restaurant’s menu is full of hits, such as its shrimp quesadilla ($10.99), carne asada burrito ($10.36), and nachos al pastor ($8.95). The menu also features fries, salads, and kids meals, making it the perfect location for a family night out.

La Taqueria in Syosset is available for dine-in or curbside pickup every day from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.

57 Berry Hill Rd., Syosset, 516-588-9500, lataqueriany.com
