Beyond Ballpark Franks

Whether the Mets win or lose, you’ve got to eat: Where to go pre– or post–Shea Stadium.

  1. 1. Spicy & Tasty

    39-07 Prince St., Flushing; 718-359-1601

    The name says it all at this great Sichuan restaurant. From springy ma-la noodles to twice-cooked pork, the complex layers of powerful flavors are a revelation.

  2. 2. Donovan’s

    57-24 Roosevelt Ave., Woodside; 718-429-9339

    A fine old Irish pub with a bar burger second only to Corner Bistro’s, and much-hailed fried onions.

  3. 3. La Pollada de Laura

    102-03 Northern Blvd., Corona; 718-426-7818

    Seviche is the house specialty at this Peruvian hole-in-the-wall. Nearly as good: the sweet marinated rotisserie chicken.

  4. 4. Sripraphai

    64-13 39th Ave., Woodside; 718-899-9599

    The defiantly delicious rebuttal to complaints that you can’t get good Thai food in New York.
