Greek Sweets for Champions in Astoria

The donutlike Greek pastries called loukoumades—once bestowed on victorious Olympic athletes, now freely available to lesser mortals who actually eat fried, sweetened dough—are the marquee attraction at Café Boulis in Queens. They're fresh and tasty and certainly live up to their billing, wewwew writes on Chowhound. They're also plenty sweet: "unless you love sugar shock," he advises, "take yours with powdered sugar, not honey."
