Just a few blocks away from the 7 train on 111th Street on the way to Flushing Meadows Corona Park are a few street vendors. If you get hungry, try a stick of barbecued chicken. It’s simply seasoned and for an extra kick throw some hot sauce on it. If that’s not enough, add a side of salchipapas (hot dogs and french fries) and wash it down with some horchata.
Here’s the horchata jug from one of the nicest vendors on Roosevelt Avenue. Between Junction and Warren Street, north side, from 9:30pm until 7am, you can find Maria selling her Salvadoran pupusas. She’s an anomaly on Roosevelt Avenue, the only Salvadoran vendor I know of.
Yes, there are pupusas, and they are great — But I LOVE the horchata she sells. One of the only places you can find Real horchata, and not the powdered genus variety.
