  1. you can walk up to Krystal's Cafe on Roosevelt for some filopino desserts, halo halo etc. fun stuff. Its also a short walk to some of the Jackson Hts sweet shops on 37th if you want to continue hyour so. asian theme.

      Also, it's not a long walk from Spicy Mina's to Sripraphai. (Though I wouldn't try going there just for dessert during a dinnertime crunch.)

    2. why have dessert elsewhere? the carrot halwa at Mina's is excellent, as are many of her sweets.

        The rice pudding is excellent. I am not a fan of rice pudding, but I have to admit her version is terrific. I guess the only other dessert option would be a trip to nearby Astoria for Greek stuff.

      2. El Sitio for some good flan and cuban coffee.
