Restaurants & Food / New Trader Joes in Queens
« on: November 11, 2007, 03:34:23 PM »
Has anyone been yet?  I just went this morning at 11 am.  The parking lot was quite full but I still got a space.  On a Sunday morning it was a breeze to drive there from JH.  I drove on 76th St. to 45th Ave to Queens Blvd to Woodhaven to Metropolitan.  I came back on Metropolitan to 69th St. all the way to JH.

It's a nice store - very wide aisles - guess they did their homework before building the store.  There's a wide range of products there and it's 10 times more pleasant than shopping in the Manhattan one.

No wine, though - you'll have to go the Manhattan TJ's special wine store for that.

As I was walking on 76th Street today, I passed Jackson Towers between 37th and Roosevelt and happened to notice a sign posted in a first floor apartment window that said "garage for rent" with a phone number 718-426-4677.  I saw this today, Nov. 1.  If you're looking for garage space in the area, you might want to go take a look and see if the sign is still up.  I know garage spaces are hard to find.

Does anyone know what the new-construction building will be used for (corner of 75th and Roosevelt)?

Restaurants & Food / Where can I buy Mexican cocoa powder
« on: October 29, 2007, 07:38:19 AM »
Is there a Mexican grocery in the neighborhood that sells Mexican or Mayan cocoa powder?  I think the kind I'm looking for has cinnamon and perhaps chiles and maybe even hazelnut in it.

Restaurants & Food / Thai restaurants in JH and surrounding areas
« on: October 29, 2007, 07:32:58 AM »
Just wanted to give my quick take on the Thai restaurants I've tried in the area.  Has anyone tried any other ones?

Arunee on 79th: good solid food, not super spicy; great value on lunch box special

Rice on Roosevelt: a bit more upscale decor.  Had a really great seafood salad there.

Chao Thai on Whitney in Elmhurst - I went once for takeout and found the inside to be cozy and would love to go back for a sit down meal.  Ordered a main dish and a salad.  When they asked if I wanted the salad 'spicy' I wasn't sure how to answer.  I said 'medium spicy' but found that it practially burned my mouth!  Still, really good food and next time I will say no to the spicy part.

Sriprapai in Woodside - great food, extensive menu.  They even have a garden in the back.
