Location: 36th and 6th Av, NYC
After hearing people say about the delights of this little cart, I went to check it out for the first time this year and OMG no wonder people are SOO crazy about it! It is actually nothing very sophisticated, just a simple Halal cart in the corner of 36th street and 6th Ave. The components consist of rice, chicken or lamb, ice berg lettuce and strips of pita bread...the magic, however, begins when you add the white sauce (people just call it white sauce..which I suspect is yogurt based) and the hot sauce. Everything is mixed together in a yummy mess. In my opinion, the more white sauce, the better. It makes the ingredients stick together so that with only a spoon full, you get to taste all the flavours offered by the lamb,rice,and lettuce.
I like eating the pita bread on the side. Once the taste of the lamb/chicken gets too overwhelming, dip a strip of pita bread into the white sauce and take a bite - it neutralizes the taste slightly.
For those who enjoy spicy food, I would suggest to indulge in as much of the spicy sauce as you can take. DO NOT underestimate it though. Its pretty damn spicy.
