A Culinary Tour of Little Manila in Woodside

Around the under-the-radar foodie mecca in Queens.

Queens’s Little Manila may be small in scope—spanning an eight-block stretch from 63rd to 71st Streets—but the big personalities and flavors there more than make up for it. 

EAT: A (Literal) Buffet of Riches at Krystal’s Cafe

The double-decker establishment has everything you could want in an authentically Filipino dining experience: counters filled with vivid pies and cakes on the first floor, and a buffet with savory fare like chicken adobo right above it. 69-02 Roosevelt Avenue

SHOP: Imported Goods at Phil-Am Foods

This place looks like your typical Queens corner mart upon first glance, but these aisles hold rare Filipino finds like salty shrimp flakes, coconut gelatin, and ube ice cream. 40-03 70th Street

EAT (MORE): Modern Filipino Fare at House of Inasal

Chef-owner Ricardo Aguirre is modernizing the concept of Filipino comfort food for the hungry masses with deep-fried quail eggs and grilled chicken legs marinated with soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, and lemongrass. 65-14 Roosevelt Avenue
