    This was a staple for me when I worked in midtown Manhattan. They opened up one about 5 minutes from me in central New Jersey probably about a year ago and when they first opened it the lines where insane and now they are non existent. Im not sure why exactly, but the chains are just not as good as the original carts in the city. Still a tasty meal though.

    I think part of it is that Halal carts are just embedded in the NYC landscape in a way that doesn't completely translate to other parts of the country. "Halal" as a cuisine isn't something that really exists elsewhere, after all. Also, the carts here in NYC do such insane volume (to this day it's rare to see a line with less than 20 people, and this is with them having three carts at the same intersection) that the food in the restaurants tends to not taste as good by comparison. Plus I think a lot of people don't realize how critical the white sauce is to the overall experience!

    Tried it in LA and wasn't impressed. I'm too used to Zankou.

    For sure is it a chili style hotness like siracha or what is something comparable?

    Let me know DVan how the red sauce is please and the food, of course. I’m a hot sauce freak so it’s the only reason I want to eat there. Lol Happy Holidays and hope you win big over NYE.

    Nope didn't like the white sauce.

    Tasted like oily Mayonnaise.

    Red sauce was good.

    Oh the Food was really good. Chicken and Gyro really hit the spot with the salad.
