Juquilita Bakery & Deli 50-18 Roosevelt Ave. Queens, NY 11377 (347) 484-3959 corner of 51st street (Woodside)
After getting off at the wrong subway stop, I kept walking west on Roosevelt, a pilgrimage of sorts. I walked by numerous Irish pubs, I looked to my left and I saw Juquilita bakery, I had a feeling I was in for something good. Its name comes from La Virgin de Juquila in Juquila, Oaxaca. Its owners, a husband and wife team hail from Guerrero and Puebla, after working for the man for several years they decided to open up their own business. Not only a bakery but they serve breakfast and antojitos like tacos, tortas, quesadillas, cemitas, tostadas and coffee.
I ordered two tacos at $2 each, they are healthy portions so two is enough. They serve a good decent taco, but the thing to order here is their tortas. I know this is a taco blog, but the bread here is fresh and yummy making the torta that much better.
Summary: Good and cheap Mexican food (we like).
Directions: 7 Train to 52nd street. Walk west on Roosevelt Ave. corner of 51st street and Roosevelt Ave. Not very far from Midtown.
