by Safiah Alias Apr 24, 2017
Yes, the moment that we are all waiting for! The Halal Guys will have their official Grand Opening for their branch in Indonesia this Friday, 28 April 2017 at Senayan City, Jakarta. You heard it on SIFTED by halalfoodhunt.com first!
Anyone who has been to the Big Apple would agree that the experience of travelling to New York is never complete without a visit to the world famous food cart- The Halal Guys. There's nothing like marveling at the magnanimity of New York's local scene while enjoying a hot platter of the delivious halal meat generaously covered in their inimitable sauces. But there's really no need to take the trip to New York's 53rd and 6th since Jakarta is just a two hours, short flight away!
The Halal Guys started in 1990 when founding partnerrs, Muhammad Abouelenien, Ahmed Elsaka and Abdelbaset Elsayed, opened a hotdog card on the West 53rd and 6th Avenue. Due to the demand for quick and affordable Halal street food, specifically from the Muslim cab drivers, they decided to convert their cart into the city's first Halal Street Food cart. Since then, The Halal Guys has steadily become the largest most beloved American halal street food concept in the world, and on the wish list of Singaporeans' MUST TRY food! An option for the two long weekend holidays in May anyone? (Yes May Day and Vesak Day long weekends are happening this month!)

They will have their signature dishes with their two famous sauces
They've only got two dishes on the menu and that is Mixed Gyros Rice (Rp. 65,000 or SGD 6.90) and Gyros Rice with Fries (Rp 80,000 or SGD 8.50). Also, their two famous sauces will be available, the white one is mayo and the red one is the super spicy sauce. For the meat, there will be two main types- chicken and lamb with a bit of beef mixed into it. Note, the prices are yet to be confirmed and this is an estimate. Gyros rice consist of fragrant basmati rice (Indian rice) soaked and marinated with spices and condiments such as meat, vegetables (lettuce, tomatoes, even cabbages), falafel (deep fried chickpea ball) and pita bread.
