Hi All,

Does Halal chicken rice that you find all over NYC and in particular the corners of 53rd & 6th exist in Los Angeles? The texture and flavor combinations are so great. NYC can't be the only place that would sell this?

  1. I don't believe so. I think it's one of those dishes (esp. the white sauce) that's indigenous to NYC.

    1. i've been mourning over this issue for gawd knows how long (too long). though for me, it's the lamb..chicken is too dry and flavorless for me. halal is always the highlight of my trips to ny. i have friends bring it back for me as well when they make their trek. as a matter of fact, i have a couple of plates remaining in the freezer, brought over from my trip this past weekend. how i wish we could replace just one of our begillion taco trucks w/the guys from 53rd and 6th. cheers to the hot sauce that is amazeballs!!

        that's pretty hard core to have people bring it back for you. must stink up in the plane... kudos to you for having it. i guess this would be a good suggestion for someone out there to open up one of those in l.a. but don't go there unless you can do it right!
