The Halal Guys

I had dinner from the famous halal cart on 53 st & 6 ave which in itself is an experience. In Arabic, halal means permitted or lawful. Halal foods are foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines according to the Qu'ran. Most importantly it's delicious, specially and exclusively here at this street cart. The cart opens for business every night from 7:30pm to 4:00am, where hundreds of people line-up every night, all night for their turn to order; while, rubberneckers pass by asking "what is going on here?" The $6.00 combination platter consists of a trio of meats including ground beef, minced lamb and chopped chicken accompanied with yellow rice, lettuce and pita . However, the Pièce de résistance is the yogurt sauce, meant to be poured all over the top; beware though, the chili sauce is HOT! This meal is reminiscent of the chop-chop from Chicken Kitchen in Miami but better!
