37th ave, JAckson Heights
who doesn't love fun? :)
well, 37th, in the '70s, at least, is pretty bereft of street food. i'd highly recommend stopping into maharaja sweets between 73rd and 74th for a chat (i'm a big pani puri fan) or a dosa. and get some spiced cashews for the road. heading up the road, deshi biryani -- a sitdown -- serves up some incredible bangladeshi food (@ 76 st) at good prices. you can stop for a glass of wine and a snack at novo if that's part of your plan (@78th st) and, in the low '80s, check out picada azuaya for some excellent ecuadorian. not sure if it's still there -- it's always had odd hours -- but up that way, inti raymi did serve some great peruvian meals.
perhaps someone else has better notions for the 82nd to junction blvd stretch?
I love Rajbhog Sweets & Snacks on 37th btwn. 72 and 73 - but it's not the sweets that do it for me there (well, they might but I haven't really tried them) -- it's the wonderful mix of different dishes they offer up every day on their very busy (so nothing sits around long) steam table and their chaats. So. Tasty.
