Hi East Coasters!
I am here from Southern California for school/work experience. Back home I love Asian and Mexican food. I love experiencing all the different enclaves such as Koreatown, San Gabriel Valley, South Bay, Thai Town, and Little Saigon. Doing my research I feel like Queens kinda offers a similar experience, particularly the neighborhoods along the 7 Train…Astoria, Long Island City, Woodside, Sunnyside, Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, Corona, and Flushing.
Besides Asian/Mexican I am open to different cuisines that are unique to the area or what I can’t get back home in California. (South American comes to mind, we have a decent Peruvian scene in LA though). I love street food and hole-in-the-wall Mom N Pops places. I am pretty excited about NYC Chinese food scene, but I feel that might need another thread altogether (I really wanna try Ho Foods, and Kopitiam)
Does anyone have any recommendations in these Queens neighborhoods?
