The Halal Guys coming to Toronto!

They are HUGE in NYC. Their specialty is a rice dish served with chicken AND lamb (that's right!!) with white sauce and smoking hot red sauce. When I mean smoking hot I mean smoking hot.

Best thing ever! My friend and I had a stopover in NYC and we went out specifically for this.

Don't get too excited though, its one thing to eat this deliciousness sitting on the side of a water fountain at night in manhattan, and another when going into a fast food restaurant and sitting down in scarborough. Keep your expectations low for that first plate!

Agreed, part of what makes it good is the scarcity of it - it's something most of us need to travel for. With 5 locations in the GTA, it will be 'meh' pretty soon.

i think they're pretty overrated.

perhaps because of the perceived of how much food you get at a decent price, people are big on it.

i had it, it was a decent amount of food for $6/7, not sure if the wait was worth it. tasted the same as every other food cart in NYC selling the same thing.

No its because its Halal and doesn't have a ton of pork on it. Its meant mainly for those who keep Halal and those who are open to new dishes. Not meant for those who are just interested in putting pork in everything

Love the white sauce and adding a bit of the hot sauce. I now have no more reasons to go to NYC :)

You were doing NYC wrong then.
