Woodside lunch recommendation off Northern Blvd stop

I'll be in Woodside (Northern blvd stop) next week and wanted to see if there are any good restaurants close by where I can grab lunch? I'm a vegetarian and I was going to try Sripraphai, but looking at the map, it looks a little far for me to walk to.

  1. Spicy Mina is nearby, maybe a 6 block walk?

      heck...if they are walking to mina, then walk the extra 3 blocks down to srip...well worth the walk

    2. Sapori d'Ischia is very close to there. No matter the hour it can be a bit pretentious, but the food is of excellent quality and the lunch menu is a steal.

      As the other repliers posted, neither Sripraphai nor Spicy Mina is all that far (10-15 mins walk max). Both are excellent and well worth the walk.

      Northern Blvd itself has an excellent cabbie joint, some very good South American places and more, but almost everything is further east in Jax Hts, and not especially veg-friendly. The area near the [G]-R-V stop is mostly fast food for mall shoppers.

      If you discover anything do let us know.

      Spicy Mina
      64-23 Broadway, Queens, NY 11377

      64-13 39th Ave, Queens, NY 11377

      Sapori d'Ischia
      55-15 37th Ave, Queens, NY 11377

        Without a doubt Sapori d'Ischia is your absolute best choice.
