Serving it Up From the Back of a Truck

Halal truck, Lower Park Avenue, NYC
Photo by myself on Lower Park Avenue, around 23rd Street.

This is one of the many Halal meat trucks that park around the city and serves up entrees at all hours of the day. They start emitting the smell of cooked chicken during morning rush hour. (Yum!)

My favorite has to be the chicken and rice, basically cut up chicken over yellow rice with various sauces. The trucks often serve falafel and lamb as well.

The word 'Halal' refers to the way an animal is slaughtered for meat, under Islamic belief.

It's not even ten in the morning and you've got me hungry--for some delicious chicken and rice and for a visit to New York.

Hi Olivier
True, NY has no shortage of places to eat, lol

Hi Tr3nta
I would LOVE to go to Madrid someday and sample all the food trucks there. Sounds yum!

Alas, I've only been to Barcelona so far, which is very different.

Hi Terry B
I'd think your delicious food and recipes are a step above these trucks. Though it's cool to eat literally on the street.

You should visit NY soon. So many good places, and not all expensive at all.

Hi Ken
Glad to see another intrepid soul! My coworkers sometimes give me the eyeball but they don't know what they're missing

Welcome Jay
haha yes. These are dependable sources of drinking food!

Thanks Lily
I love neon too!

That is my favorite food too.

There was a truck selling Korean spicy pork with rice near me but he moved. :-(
