It is perhaps the most famous food cart in New York City. And now, DNAInfo reports that the Halal Guys will be opening a brick and mortar store in the East Village. The original Halal Guys cart, known for their long lines and delicious falafel and chicken over rice at the 53rd & 6th location since 1983, is regularly featured in travel publications and reports across the country.
The owner told DNAInfo that they plan to serve more than the typical halal food. Plans for vegetarian options and a juice bar are in the works. The storefront is slated to open the first week of November on the corner of 14th street and 2nd avenue.
It won’t be long before those of us on the East Side don’t need to take the trek to midtown for the famous halal.
