New Kosher Restaurants on Main Street (Kew Garden Hills)

We just returned from Main Stree tand found that three new eateries opened on Main Street between 71 Rd and 72 Avenue (the block that Shimon's Pizza and Max and Mina's Ice Cream are on.) One is a kosher Thai restaurant -- Mai Thai Glatt -- apparently the first glatt Thai food in NYC according to their menu. It must have just opened since the resutarant's sign wasn't even up yet and the resturant was a bit dingy but the food was good. They have Pad Thai and various rice dishes as well as grills and Satays. They also have falafel and burgers. We got the pineapple rice and the PadThai to go and it was delicous. Reasonable prices.
There is also a new meat restuarant called the Sandwich Bar. They have deli sandwiches and also shnitzel, which is offered Shnitizi style -- you order the type of breading you want and they fry the cutlet fresh for you and then you choose your toppings and sauce (pickles, lettuce, garlic mayo, bbq sauce etc.) for the sandwich. The shnitzel sandwiches were $9 for an approx footlong sandwich. Much better and with more meat than the kosher Subway that opened a few blocks away. The challenge is that there are only 2 counters, with 4 seats each inside the restaurant and a tiny table outside.
There is also a new Israeli restaurant that we did not try. Looked like it has borekas and eggs etc.
