I was never a doughnut fan until I bit into one of Mark Isreal beauties at the Doughnut Plant.
Using recipes that were handed down from his grandfather, Isreal has gone from retailing his sweet treats out of a basement to owning two storefronts in New York City. He does nothing less than doughnut wizardry in these kitchens. Read the rest of this entry

MY RATINGS FOR THIS MEAL

 

Food: ☆☆☆☆

 

Service: ☆☆

 

Cost: $

 

53rd and 6th Halal Cart on Urbanspoon

 


“The Best Halal. Delicious Chicken and Gyro  – We are different!” scream the yellow shirts worn by “The Gyros Guys” on 53rd and 6th avenue.

They have no official name and are known as anything from  the Halal Cart to Chicken and Rice to Platter!


There are many Halal Carts around that block but this one in particular is in a class by itself. They are known by their distinctive yellow sweatshirts and plastic bags that read ” The Best Halal……….”

They are only open at night from 7:30 PM to 4:00 AM. It doesn’t matter what time of night you go  – they always have a long line of eager night owls waiting to get their fix.

This was the line we found when we got there at 2:30 AM on a Saturday night!!



But here’s the BIG secret. They usually charge $6 for a chicken rice platter but for $10 – you get to cut the line!!!

So, if you dont want to wait and are willing to pull out the big bucks……. all you have to do is go up to the guys directly and tell them that you want the ten dollar deal!!



Needless to say their food is fabulous. There is no better way to wind down the New York night scene.

They have two options on their menu – the chicken and rice platter or the chicken gyro sandwich. Their sauces are to die for!

Apparently the recipe for their white sauce is top secret – that’s where all the flavor is and they have a kick-ass hot sauce. I’m a spice hound but you really have to take it easy on this one – its is SMOKING hot!

So delicious!!


So if you ever get those late night munchies and need a hit of something cheap and fabulous……53rd and 6th is the place to go!
