One of the most popular food carts in NYC will be opening a storefront in the East Village during the first week of November.
The original Halal Guys cart on the SW corner of 53rd & 6th was a Vendy Cup finalist in the very first Vendy Awards back in 2005. They have since expanded to four carts in total, all in the same general area of 52nd-53rd St and 6th-7th Ave.
They have been featured in numerous travel shows and publications. When we get contacted by foreign publications to discuss street food, the 53rd & 6th Halal Cart invariably comes up.
So what do you do when the midtown halal cart scene is saturated? Open a storefront in another nabe, natch.
