Over the last 5 to 6 years, New York City has seen an exponential growth of it’s “Halal Food” industry.

One element is the very visible “Halal Food” carts, which number well over 200 all across New York City and the surrounding areas.

The majority are located in Manhattan, but I also came across one in the Chinatown section of Flushing, NY on my recent trip – which was a very pleasant (and tasty) surprise!

Of course some are more popular than others.  There is the Halal Cart located at W. 53rd and 6th Avenue which is known to be one of the best.  Unfortunately, when I went there, I didnt realize that the “real one” at 53rd and 6th Ave. didnt get there until 7:30pm, so I unknowningly tried a different halal food vendor at the same location at an earlier time.  It was good, but not has great as what everyone was saying (now I know why)!

Anyways here are some images I took with my iPhone of different Halal Carts across New York.  Enjoy!
