El Shater Corp- Middle Eastern Gourmet Food (43-02 43rd Ave 11104) With all the ethnicity of Queens, it’s no surprise that this little gem is in the heart of Sunnyside. This tiny Lebanese food market packs an astonishing selection of teas, rice, home made sweets, freshly packaged spices and every kind of olive imaginable. It’s a great place to get food to-go or fresh spices like cardamom,  cloves and fresh curry. El Shater has a deli counter serving Mediterranean meatballs, falafel, spinach pie and other pastries stuffed with savory fillings. And for dessert, try the kataifeh- honey shredded wheat or if you’re adventurous- the Madluet Ashtah- cream filled rosewater and pistachio delight.
