Top 5 unzagated authentic "ethnic" food in Queens?
I'd like to know where to eat authentic, non-mainstream (e.g. no popular: European, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, etc.) off-the-beaten track, more obscure, food.
A place where food critics and zagateers don't frequent. (Or haven't yet.)
Or am I asking too much?
Are Balkan-style pizzas on Zagat's radar? If not, pop over to Djerdan in Astoria.
Or how about a Bosna Burger (pjlescevica)? Bosna Express, in Ridgewood, serves up a masterful patty about the size of a frisbee. The party's in your mouth, brother. They also serve little torpedoes of beauty called Cevapi, sausages that explode with flavor.
Shalom, one of many wonderful Uzbeki joints in Rego Park, presents a succulent salmon kebab amongst other delicious tidbits worth biting off of a stainless steel blade.
Down south, in the scantily mentioned neighborhood of Briarwood, on Hillside, El Comal serves up about 8 or 9 different kinds of Salvadoran pupusas (stick with those, over the mediocre chicken).
A block or so away is El Rey, which serves up as hearty a Dominican Breakfast as you're likely to have anywhere. Down it with some Spanish Coffee - it'll keep you going for days.
