      Halal food carts are great. Try RAFIQI! Theres one at Union Sq on 16th St, Chelsea at 26 & 7th, Madison and 47th and other locations as well.

        If you're by Mamouns on MacDougal and really want the tastiest lamb, head across the street and down a few doors to Yatagans. Mamouns has good falafel, but Yatagans has the BEST lamb doner kebabs. Mamouns lamb isn't even in the same league.
