Illegal Queens restaurants profiled on TV
This episode of Jamie's American Roadtrip takes Jamie to New York City, only this time he's trading the upscale restaurants and neighbourhoods he's used to for an apartment in one of the world's most ethnically diverse areas: Queens. From his new home Jamie explores some of the food being cooked by New York's immigrant communities: Egyptian, Peruvian and Chinese.
Jamie uncovers things he's never imagined like an illegal restaurant run in a family's living room and an anti-restaurant scene. The people who run these "supper clubs" open their homes to strangers and feed them restaurant-quality meals, without the inflated prices and hurried service. After discovering this new side to the city he's known for years, Jamie is inspired to hold his own supper club.
And there's a bonus...a guy who feeds illegal aliens out of the goodness of his heart!

I too am following the "American Dream". Corn flakes and a banana at 10:30A at my breakfast club. $25 a head. Youse all come. Knock discreetly.
Opening up your home to strangers is inviting trouble!
"A gourmet meal, hot sex and high stakes gambling in the privacy of my abode"!
Some enterprising Flushing Taiwanese will soon combine this three in one visit combo!
But which category does one partake of first?
Yeah...right...a salmonella special served up in a nice cozy bed bug environment.
I'll stick with Chinese take-out if John Liu delivers!
Hollywood and illegals - the same leeches in bed together. Serving the purposes of rotten morals with too much fast money.
Who's this fag, some brit come over here to video our trash in order to make themselves look superior?
10:51 I want to get out where the most recent are settling and what dishes they've brought with them...... Its the latest arrival to the New York dining scene.
Hipsters are now considered the newest immigrant group. What dish is it that they actually brought?
What new dish have the hipsters brought?
False hopes and stupidity from the mid west.
They've got to throw these bashes to raise money to pay their rent.
I wonder if this was going in the townhouses near Gramercy Park or in the apartments on Park Ave in the 70's, if this would be so appreciated and celebrated?
ONE BIG TEAMING SLUM!!!!
I love seeing shit like this they make money and the best part the greedy ass non representative goverment doesn't get a penny in tax revenue.
Welcome to Queens, Helen Marshall, Borough President
Yes, and there's no issue with cleanliness, illegal conversion, food safety...
How dare they break the law. This is America , not Tiajuana!
Ok Bloomberg, let's put an end to this nonsense before it really gets out of hand!
Crapper, cleanliness and illegal conversion are thrown out the window, "the value is on the plate"
Welcome to Queens, Helen Marshal Borough President.
So let's see...firetraps serving food, not adhering to health code regs, no oversight (and the libs LOVE regulations, but also love illegals and ethnic food, so we can let them slide), when you get sick from food served there, you can't trace it because DOH has no record of a restaurant there and DOB will just post an LS4 on the door and shrug their shoulders. Vibrant! Diverse!
Food I don't mind - maybe they'll poison themselves. It's the freakin party joints: private home let out for parties with commercial-grade sound systems, disco-balls, announcers, couple of hundred people... three-four nights a week - NOW THAT's a problem!
Who am I?
Where am I?
What is this all about?
Great let's forget what illegal means and celebrate these people. Oh, and forget about all the mom and pops who worked and sacrificed everything to open their restaurants the proper way
