Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

BÚN-KER, 46-63 Metropolitan Avenue (between Woodward Avenue and Onderdonk Avenue), Ridgewood, Queens As food bloggers, we always dream of discovering some place new to share with the world. With the media being what it is, it’s hard to be the first to write about and gush over an undiscovered restaurant. The most successful are those who hang out in the far reaches of Queens and Brooklyn. Or in the case of Bún-ker, somewhere right in between.

I certainly can not take credit for discovering this place (there are lines out the door every night and it’s been covered by every NY food publication at this point), but I sure wish I could. I first read about it (like most people) in NY Magazine’s Cheap Eats issue. It was the first time I had even heard of a destination in Ridgewood, Queens. Since then, it seems everybody and their mother has taken the L train to Bushwick and then walked through a post-industrial area just to try this highly praised Vietnamese food.
