I have posted about this before. The Serious Eats’ Halal Cart-Style chicken and rice with white sauce recipe. It’s far from being as good as the street cart on 53rd and 6th in NYC but last time I made it I found it to be a pretty damn good counterfeit recipe.
Boston opened up one of the Halal Guys restaurants and I had never been so excited to try a place. And it sucks. I’m not even sure why to be honest. It kind of has everything I expected from the carts but the flavor isn’t as intense. One of the things I love about the carts in NYC is you can actually smell the food as you get closer. Even inside the Boston location the smell is nowhere near as intense.
So, this was delicious.
