Halal Brothers at the corner of 6th Avenue is one of my favorite places to eat when I am at the MoMA for the evening and need a reasonable place to eat. Their Combo sandwich or platter are very reasonable at $5.00-$7.00 respectively. The sandwich is loaded with chopped chicken and gyro with fresh lettuce on top and their two... More

Ok so we picked up our platter from the Halal Guys cart outside the Starbucks.. The serpentine queue is a testimony of the great taste and craze this food chain has. And you won't be disappointed, with their barbecue and mayonnaise sauce to top over the rice and meat, it's simple delectable !

After a multiple hour trek through the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), I was pleased to find The Halal Guys food cart sitting out on the street corner. At the time, I had no idea what I was in for. The line was surprisingly short, and the food was coming off the line hot and really fast. I ordered the... More

The chicken and rice is phenomenal. The prices are very good too. The only thing that is a little bad is the line to order. If you go at midnight or later be prepared to wait in line.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
