The Bread Ladies and questions

Wendy | Oct 9, 2003 05:04 PM

First I wanted to report that I went to The Bread Ladies at The Shahi Snack and Foods which Jim Leff has written about. They are located on the corner of Broadway and 72 Street in Jackson Heights.

The place is not much to look at and really not so much a store as a tiny bread factory. They spoke barely a word of English. Basically, I wanted to sample their bread after reading about it, so I just asked for Roti. The woman in front presented me with a bag of 5 plain Rotis for $1.25.

I just tried one and it was quite good. I had it simply plain, I imagine if I ate it warmed up with a good curry it would be excellent. I like the chewy consistency, the fragrant charcoal smell and taste and it was very fresh. Also it is not overly greasly like some other Rotis I've had.

Now, my question is, what should I ask for next? There is no menu. Any suggestions?

A quick question:
Does anyone know whether the food stall next to the Korean supermarket (in the parking lot next to Rice Avenue) is any good? If so, what to order there?
