Looking for Chicken & Rice (NYC Street Food)

_iAKT Sep 26, 2012 05:59 PM

Back from NYC... and all I can think of is 53rd & 6th's Halal chicken & rice!

Is this even remotely possible to find here in Dallas?

While I'm at it, authentic ramen recommendations? Looking for Ippudo, Totto caliber please.

    You talking about the guys in the picture below?? Nothing close to that here. I feel what you mean though. Simple, cheap, filling and somewhat healthy

    Ramen is tricky. We really don't have that either. Tei An might be the best place...maybe Teppo? I had ramen in LA at Santouka. The next two pictures are of that ramen and shoyu marinated hard boiled egg. I still have yet to find anything remotely close.

      Looks like the quest continues!

        Tei An or Mr. Max would be the top bets for ramen in Dallas. Nothing close to Ippudo/Hide-Chan/Santouka level quality unfortunately though.

          I dunno man, Tei An is pretty damn amazing for everything but they're pretty expensive due to the location and quality.

          I heard about the new ramen place in Austin and I'd love a good and decently priced place here.

          Also I noticed no one has any ideas for NY style halal chicken and rice. Are none of the middle eastern places in town making it? That's a pretty shocking oversight, but I have yet to hear about a decent shawarma place in town too. (Did have a guy tell me he was opening a place called Kebab-chi in Arligton but they've got zero web presence thus far.)

            Try Afrah on Main Street in Richardson. Excellent Middle Eastern food.
            Great lunch buffet, too.

            I used to live a couple blocks away from Ippudo... Ah, memories (I liked Kambi too)... I've started to look up recipes for making traditional ramen broth since I found places to buy pork neck bones and pork belly for the chashu.

        Hope this is helpful.....

        For home made ramen in Dallas, try Sushism in Carrollton or
        Sapporo in Richardson.

          I've been on the same quest.

          Nothing close to the Halal cart at a restaurant here. I've had somewhat of success at home with the rice part of it

          Sapporo has decent ramen but just missing the depth that Ippudo or Totto has. Tei An in Dallas has the most authentic broth in the area but missing the toppings.

            Thanks, I have yet to try Sapporo... but I've read mixed reviews on the place and a bit hesitant.
