Street food magicians the Halal Guys blessed the East Village with a brick-and-mortar eatery over the summer. And today they're dousing the Upper West Side in magnificent white sauce, debuting a new outpost on 95th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Let the lines full of post-Gin Mill drunks commence!
West Side Rag reports that the crew handed out some free samples to lucky passersby at their uptown incarnation last night, and today they're open and ready for business.
And this isn't the end of the Halal Guys four-walled proliferation—the Times reports that the famed food cart has plans to shower Los Angeles, Houston, Washington, D.C., and the Philippines with chicken and rice platters, though it still seems like those heaping plates can't taste nearly as good as they do after a 20 minute wait at 53rd and 6th. Braving Midtown is half the magic, after all.
