Adels Halal food on 50th and 6th is actually the best imo.


Chill don’t tell everyone

i agree i actually prefer the random food truck rafiqi's




Halal Guys is good BUT once you give your local nondescript $5 halal cart a chance and make friends with them so that they know how you like your order, that's the truly good stuff 👌🏽


Back pre-2010 before they got funding to expand, their chicken over rice was actually quality - too bad most ppl here probably never got to experience it


Nope not overrated


You won’t get a verdict on this. IMO it’s overrated. There’s a reason why it’s on a tourist spot. It’s the virgin experience of ethnic food for a lot of people. Within the same perimeter you’ve got Red Lobster, Olive Garden, TGIF, which are hard to find anywhere else in NYC.
BUT, one of my chef friend digs it for comfort food. So 🤷🏻‍♂️


Only out of staters (especially ppl from the Midwest) like Halal Guys. It’s why half the line in tourists. Actual NYers have better taste.


Midwesterner here. Can confirm

Better Halal truck on 49th and 6th. Called Adels I think


Go ask in a city bowl where they don't have NYC options 😭 halal guys is the safe middle America choice.


Years ago I visited a slaughterhouse that had both halal and non-halal processing lines. I am actively avoiding halal food ever since. I am not remotely vegetarian or a tree hugger or anything, but causing all that useless suffering to animals left me upset.


crazy bet

imagine posting made-up bets on fishbowl for anonymous clout lmao


No-name halal carts are the best

Totally agree! Got them the other day after more than a year and I had forgotten it’s not that good lol I’m still disappointed!! 😂

Farooks on 14th

Naya’s falafel tastes better .

I had it once and never had it again… Adels 💯

Any halal food in Astoria > halal guys

Now it’s overrated. If you had it back in 2010-ish, it was dope af. I used to drive out at 2am for it from queens

What would you advise to accelerate the interview process? I am in the interview process with a few firms now and got a couple offers. However, the recruiter from my favorite firm is not very responsive and has not even scheduled my final round yet. Is it appropriate to ask my interviewer from the previous rounds to push that? Or is there a better way?
