Off-The-Radar Cheap Eats: Exploring 6 Indian Sweets Shops in Queens

A confection from Maharaja Quality Sweets
We don’t always grab a simple chocolate bar when we need a cheap sugar fix. With New York’s Roosevelt Avenue station only a subway ride away, we often mosey to Jackson Heights, where the concentration of Indian sweets shops in the area surrounding 74th Street is surely the highest in town. These off-the-radar stores offer an astonishing variety of inexpensive, traditional confectioneries – many of which are milk- or nut-based and flavored with exotic spices. We’ve picked six of these spots to explore; have a look at their specialties and head over next time your sweet tooth needs a fix.
