Looking for cilantro sold with roots in Queens.

Most farmers markets will sell it with the roots intact.

Guide to NYC's 10 Best Greek Restaurants and Tavernas

This place is stellar. Is it loud?...yes....can it get crowded?..yes..but the food is WONDERFUL. If you remember and miss the Aegean Cove in Astoria, you need to go to Yefsi on the upper east side.

Bakeway is another one...although it's dangerous...they have great fresh brewed iced tea and amazing pastries :-)

That's what I figured you were looking for :-) By no means is it gourmet, but it's a decent cup of coffee at the very least. Hope this helps!

E Taverna, lovely neighborhood Greek restaurant in Astoria: pile up the small plates

Part of why this place is so fabulous is that the owners are connected to Titan supermarket and the now defunct Aegean Cove restaurant...which was also fabulous. A friend of mine knows them and was able to confirm this. Needless to say I came across E Taverna by accident and it is my fave Greek restaurant for sure!

ALDI Coming to Brooklyn - Any Update?

The one in Rego Park just introduced their organic line...Not a lot of items, but definitely affordable...and tasty. I was really surprised! From what I have been reading, they roll out items to see how well they do in different markets. The organic line has been out in other states since last year. I hope it sticks, bc both items I tried were really good.

What has happened to my favorite Greek restaurant in Astoria - Aegean Cove???

It was my favorite too!!! I met the owner through a friend of mine and knew at some point they were planning to close....but literally a week after that convo, it was already closed.

Where Can I Find a Whole Tres Leches Cake?

Valencia def carries them in any size you want. I've gotten them at the valencia at lex and 105 st. it's pretty good. However you must order it in advance; tres leches is not readily available at the store like some of their other cakes.

Meatball Hero - sunnyside, woodside, LIC, Greenpoint, Maspeth, Roosevelt ave

When I want some good Italian close to home I go to
Valdiano's on manhattan avenue in greenpoint. I'm on autopilot when I go there. It's on the same block as dunkin donuts on corner of bedford ave and manhattan ave. Not a huge Menu but it's not needed bc what they do, they do well! Been Going there forever and their chicken parm is great. Never Had meatball hero but have had their meatballs and they're good. It's cash only but prices are reasonable. Check it out if you get a chance.

New in Sunnyside: Lenny's Pizza

I was waiting for someone else's take on this place. Lenny is a nice guy.
I was surprised there was an actual Lenny :-) However I
Agree with the other two posters who gives this place a thumbs down. Huge
Slice, no flavor. Only decent slice I dig in this hood is Marbellas a few blocks
Down from this place on greenpoint ave.

Cannelle Patisserie in Queens

I went on Saturday and was dissappointed not because of the food (which was really good) but because I got there around 5-5:30. They were out of most of the sandwiches, were down to one soup, and 2 quiches. They were really nice though, and said they make their last batch of sandwiches at 2 and once they are done, they are done. Despite my disappointment, it's nice to know the food is very fresh and the pastries were really good. I'll go again, just much earlier :-)

Sonali Indian Cuisine, new in Sunnyside!

I tried that new pizza place. Not the best I've had, but definitely better than anything I've tried in Sunnyside. The owners are very nice actually...they are from Brooklyn :-)

Anyone been to - "I Love Py" in Sunnyside

I went there for breakfast once...the bread wasn't fresh and eggs overdone. I was passable because I was hungry. Haven't had their soups though, so can't put my two cents in for that.

Sunnyside Pizzeria

Hello all,

So I'm on my way home and notice this little hole in the wall place...reminds me of pizza place in Brooklyn I used to go to. I have to say, it's not half bad. The place is small and the menu is small, but compared to these other places that call themselves pizzeria's, this place is a step above. I chatted it up with the owner for a bit...they are from Gravesend, Brooklyn. I ordered a plain slice just to have a baseline...liked it enough to get another to go. This place is just off 40th street and queens blvd.

Has anyone else checked it out?

Sunnyside CFC....

Widmark, I am SO LOVING U!!!! I went to Chu Ying today. Didn't have my car, so I hopped on the 32 bus, got off at 69th street and trekked down to woodside avenue. Ate the egg roll while waiting for the bus back and was overcome at how divine it was. Got home, tried my staple of chicken with broccoli, and smiled. This is IT! I get c&b whenever I try a new place. If it's decent, then i explore the rest of the menu. I WILL be exploring the rest of the menu. Finally, a real chinese restaurant!! By the way, they deliver to least that is what one of the waitresses told me.
