"Obscure" ethnic eats

Chartrand | Dec 17, 201006:53 AM     36

Hi. Grew up in NY but now in Chicago. Whenever I come home, I like trying off-the-beaten-path ethnic restaurants. Stuff I can't find in Chicago.

For example, on recent trips home had Yemeni food on Atlantic Avenue, Indonesian in Elmhurst, and Algerian in the East Village.

Coming home for the weekend. Any suggestions? Preferably close to a subway. Lunch or dinner is OK. Prefer Brooklyn or Queens, but open to the other outer boroughs too.
