Family Deli & Grocery in Woodside

Just wanted to let the hounds in the area know that this little shop is worth patronizing. It's a small grocery store where they bake Mexican bread on premises throughout the day (in small batches so the bread stays fresh). They also make sandwiches (haven't tried) and hot food. On my recent visit the hot food entree consisted of steak with nopals, rice and fried rice, sunnyside up egg, small korean fried white fish pancake - all for $5. Not outstanding, but tasty and cheap if you don't feel like cooking. They only make 1-2 dishes per day. The grocery store itself is worth visiting - it has few organic products, small but pretty good produce selection, eclectic variety of european imports like muesli, Swedish cookies, Mexican imports, Korean pears, sushi rice etc. and a pretty wide variety (for the size of the store) of mexican chili peppers. The owner is Korean and her staff and patrons are mostly Mexican (she's the only one who speaks English btw). It's on Roosevelt Ave between 65th and 67th (right across the street from Sripraphai).
