The Halal Guys, the franchise that have successfully worked the streets of NY and beyond. I wasn't able to write a blog post about these guys when I was actually living in NY because, let's be real, archi-torture takes up a lot of time (and money), but my love for halal food runs deep. My memory of the halal guys is covered with a golden greasy nostalgia, but I assure you they're legit. Everything from the greasy lamb that flavors the entire plate, to the creamy tahini sauce that tops it, to the bed of orange-yellow turmeric rice the plate is built upon. The flavors are rich, the grease is real, and the portions are larger than life.
Also don't get the hot sauce. Your sphincter will thank me. But the real reason I'm writing this post is because The Halal Guys are coming to Seattle.
THATS RIGHT SUCKAS! the mother f*cking halal guys are coming to seattle! What, what?!
But don't take my word for it. See for yourself from a more credible source. I don't think I've ever been more excited for Spring in Seattle. I'm sure by that time the only two things I'll crave in life are lamb over rice and sunshine.
But if you are in NY and haven't tried these guys out, then please get off your ass and do something about it. Let me give you the play by play. Fist you'll head to mid-town, because Uniqlo is having a sale and you need some new black shirts to fit in with your architecture friends. Don't forget about the black jeans. Those are important. When you finishing getting all styled up, you walk outside only to see this long ass line of people that snakes around the corner. Upon further inspection you notice a few guys in yellow operating a food cart.
After waiting in line for 15 min or so like a crack addict you'll be blessed with some options. First option is chicken over rice, second is lamb over rice. The other options don't really matter. I personally always do the lamb, only because I'm not a big fan of chicken.
And yes, I am painfully aware that my food photography skills leave something to be desired. But to be fair, this just isn't that photogenic. Check out these noobs if you don't believe me. Anyways just wanted people to board the hype train for The Halal Guys. We out.
