This stretch of the block is the terminal for the Q58; here the buses lay over, and change drivers, before wending their way through Corona, Elmhust, and Maspeth to Ridgewood, and back. Outside, one bus has nosed into the picture.
Inside this narrow storefront, which is shared with a second food shop, a few short minute will secure a griddled-to-order Tianjin jianbing guozi ($3).

Grab-and-go options include assorted chicken parts, not all of them meaty, various hot-sauced tripe dishes, and, from a previous visit, what was identified by another customer as lamb, though my guess would have been mutton (half-pound shank, at $9 per pound). Hot pepper optional.
