This is a proud and colorful street full of Indian/Pakistani, Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian, and Latin American groceries and restaurants, and brimming with make-it-work immigrant energy. The big Holy Land deli-restaurant-grocery purveyor has been a major presence here for years, well known for its fine hummus and falafel, while Sen Yai Sen Lek, an informal and design-y Thai noodle-and-rice restaurant, is a popular newcomer.
