53rd and 6th Halal Cart – New York, NY

Mixed plate, feeds a family of four, $6.

Like many of the previous reviewers noted, you’re not dining at Nobu here, don’t expect unmatched culinary excellence. What you can expect is a ridiculously huge portion of meat over delectable rice at an unbeatable price. If you ever pick up a guide on “NYC on X dollars a day,” and it doesn’t include the Halal cart, it is your moral obligation as a human being to take every last guide off the shelf of that bookstore to burn them immediately so the rest of the population won’t suffer.

I had it on good authority to come here from a number of sources and was not disappointed. I over white-sauced and under hot-sauced, but fantastic nonetheless.

If you are a foodie on a budget looking for a taste on New York City, you’d be remiss to pass up the HFC.

    Cheap good food. I love it. I should take my wife out. We're on a budget, and this sounds great.

      See now that makes sense. If you're on a budget a women will appreciate the fact that you still want to treat her. Just not spend a million dollars doing it. It's the thought that counts!

    Sounds like an awesome place to go. I don't really like all the knife flippin around crap in my face anyway!
