The best way to get the New York City experience and food like a New Yorker, is to eat at the original Halal Guy’s food stand on 53rd & 6th.
Before the world wide recognition and restaurant chains, this is where it all started: a hot dog cart. With a growing demand for fast halal food and a dream, Halal Guys was born and is now well on their way to realizing their vision of becoming the best American Halal Food restaurant in the world.
Somewhere between finding a ledge to balance my platter on, eating amidst the cacophony of honking taxis and noise of the city, bumping every now-and-again into a businessman rushing to some matter of importance, I felt like I’d been dropped into the middle of a New York City moment and I loved it.
This is exactly how I like to travel.
