New offerings at Tawa Foods/Tawa Deli (Broadway & 72nd)

Looks like they're now offering the long-promised Mediterranean stuff. Has anyone tried it yet?

      Overzealous, underinformed moderator: kindly restore this to the Outer Boroughs board. Place is in Queens.

      Anyway, they had one of the vertical grills going last week, but they had just put the meat on so the shwarma was a no-go. I went back today and the pair of grills weren't operating. The mystery endures...

      Couple things of note in that area. There sometimes present sometimes not dosa cart on Broadway across from Astoria Federal hasn't been there the past few times I slid through. Have they abandoned the spot? And Rice Avenue/Eat Rice in NYC has rechristened as Chili Chicken, advertising Thai and Chinese food.

        And now that it's Chili Chicken, it is absolutely awful. We've tried twice (carryout) b/c we liked Rice Avenue. Never again.

          Can you tell us what you ordered from Chili Chicken? I thought it was one of the better Indian-Chinese places around there when they were located across the street before the building was torn down for the new construction. I would likely avoid the Thai offerings, if that's what they're doing.
