Halal Guys @ 53rd and 6th - NYC

After a morning at MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) admiring Van Gogh and Dali's masterpieces, we decided to grab food from one of the most famous food carts in New York City:
Located at the corner of 53rd and 6th avenue, it was an easy walk from MOMA. 

The line-up wasn't super long when we got there (probably because of the rain), so we quickly chose our lunch and frantically tried to find somewhere to sit down and eat. 
Unfortunately, there weren't a lot of options for tourists to sit and eat on a rainy day (Starbucks on the opposite side of the street or McDonalds further down 6th avenue). 

Mixed wrap $5

Combination Platter $6
Chicken and lamb together in a huge dish! The portion size was fit for two people and it was only $6?!? This proves that you can eat a yummy and filling meal in one of the most expensive cities in the world! 
Fantastic! There was a ton of food here - the lamb was nicely seasoned and savoury (it wasn't too gamy tasting) and the shredded chicken was succulent and full of flavour from the spices. 

I also really liked the yogurt white sauce because it made the dish work well together. Delicious! 
The rice was okay, it wasn't the best compliment to the food since it was slightly overcooked and hard that day. However, the lettuce was super fresh and when you eat everything together - it was just amazing. 

Overall: AMAZING! You've got to try it here! The food is delicious and service is pretty fast. This is probably one of the best meals in New York City (and it's under $10 - it doesn't get any better than this!).
