This past Sunday morning my car broke down on the way to the flea market in the old theater in the center of Richmond Hill and I had to leave my car parked there overnight.
Instead of immediately heading to Myrtle Avenue to wait for the Q55 to take me back to Glendale, I decided to see if there was anything interesting along Jamaica Avenue and stumbled across Punjabi Restaurant & Sweets between 112th and 113th Streets. If you're in the area sometime and want a little something I think it's worth checking out.
It's just a utilitarian hole in the wall that seems to cater to the local Guyanese-Indian population. I got take out and, after a bus ride home, tried the samosa chat, the allutiki chat and some pakora (all the food is vegetarian). It seems like a great place to pick up an Indian snack—nothing fancy.
It was all delicious though the pakora would have been crunchier if I'd chosen to eat it pre-Q55. I plan to go back to this place and try more things since it's pretty close to Glendale and is very inexpensive.
Glendale is hungry...
