      I'd say 74th street station, junction blvd and flushing. which places specifically? I don't know.

      1. re: Jeffsayyes

        Second Junction Blvd. (Corona), Flushing and 74th St. (Jax Heights) as great food 'hoods, but you also might want to consider a second-tier top 3 food 'hoods along the 7: 61st St. & 69th St. (Woodside) and 46th St. (Sunnyside) much great food; so hard to choose!

        For the uninitiated, Steve R means Sripraphai.

      3. I think Flushing is a given. I'd also vote for:

        74th St./Roosevelt-- it's a 5-min walk to Ayada Thai on Woodside Ave (still my local favorite); or get some papri chaat at Rajbhog Sweets on 37th Ave--my fave snack in the 'hood. And pick up some pan de bono (Colombian cheese bread) at La Abundancia before you get back on the train.

        And then: While I'm a huge fan of Elmhurst, all of my favorite places are around Broadway, so a bit of a walk from Roosevelt. I'd say either hop off early at Hunters Point for pickled pork tongue and a few other apps at M. Wells (assuming you can get in quickly)...or get off at 103rd/Corona Plaza for some old-school Queens: an Italian sandwich at Leo's Latticini/Mama's and lemon ice at Lemon Ice King.

        OR get something off of Junction Blvd--don't know that area too well, but do like Rincon Criollo for Cuban.

        And you might want to walk a stop, like between 74th and 82nd, or 82nd and 90th, so you can try a taco/quesadilla or Ecuadorian truck.

        Clearly, you'll have to make the trip more than once!
