Roosevelt Avenue - Introduce my kids to your favorites

I am taking my kids (3 and 5) to Shea today and want to expose them to great foods from different cultures. We were planning to park and then take the #7 back into Queens anywhere. While they tend to be able to eat a bunch of different things, they are not yet adventurous. I took them to Spicy and Tasty last week and they thoroughly enjoyed it. I know there are so many great threads on where to eat in Queens, but just wanted a slightly different take on the issue.

    I've been to Sri with children, and they seem accomodating in terms of spice levels etc., if that is an issue.

      If the kids aren't too hungry (e.g. feed me NOW!) you might actually have a great time in the Golden (?) Food Court where Chengdu Heaven and other stalls are - Can watch noodles and potstickers being made, lamb burgers (from another stall) are well loved on this board; everyone's speaking Chinese! Be fore-warned, and "warn" them (make it fun!) that sometimes no-one will speak English, but it's so cheap you can buy some whatever, and if you don't like it, try something else! Also, some stalls have pictures on the wall, and often you can see the food as it's being made - I'd bring my kids! (Close enough that Spicy and Tasty can be easy back-up on the offchance that the mall/food is too offbeat for the kids/you...)
