Restaurants near Flushing Meadows Park

Im planning my first trip to NYC and am including a little excursion to flushing meadows park to see the unisphere since my boyfriend happens to be working on a digital recreation of the Worlds Fair. I would love some suggestions for places to grab food in the area. I'm a pretty adventurous eater but my boyfriend isn't really in to anything too crazy. I understand this is a great area for Chinese and would like some of those suggestions but also some non Chinese places would be great! Nothing crazy pricey as I'm sure I'll find enough of that in Manhattan and Brooklyn!

  1. After visiting the Unispehere, veer off toward the Hall of Science and Wildlife Center and then you are just a couple of blocks from Roosevelt Ave where you'll find a great variety of wonderful Mexican/Colombian/Ecuadorian restaurants and taquerias. Just walk down Roosevelt toward the lower numbered streets and you'll see street food as well as restaurants..

    1. Try Tortilleria Nixtamal and Lemon Ice King, might be just what you are looking for.
