re: E Eto
Great summary. I thought I'd fill some blanks:
Queensborough Plaza -- Haven't been myself, but FilmChefs gets high praise here and there is also Bulgara within walking distance.
33rd St -- there is a dominican diner in front of MoMA QNS.
111st -- around there, Northern blvd. gets really close to Roosevelt ave. so it's pretty walkable from the 7 train. I only know Green Field, but hounds more familiar with Corona may add to the list.
FilmChefs (which was primarily a sandwich shop) has closed. The chef is focusing on his catering business, but you can still occasionally get his stuff at Socrates Sculpture Park for special events.
And yes, Bulgara's not too far from Queensboro, and it's pretty respectable Bulgarian food.
yes, would also like to add:
vernon/jackson ave: cafe henri, bella via, brasil coffee house, lounge 47
40th st: taco truck on southside QB & 41st st during the night
46th st: el jarro = de mole
74th st: jackson diner (love it or hate it), unidentified flying chicken
82nd st: the arepa lady late at night on the weekends
Look for the pig cart man! Check out the Jackson Heights street food article. Also, grab an arepa on the way back from the Arepa Lady if it's a Fri or Sat and you're leaving very late. Oh and if it's a weekend then Pollo Gus has nice Ecuadorian stews at a good price. THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING BULGARA! I MUST TRY IT!
