They’ve basically created a whole new genre of food
The combination of traditional halal ingredients and spices + an “Americanized” presentation (one designed to specifically meet the needs of the NYC cabbie community) has essentially become a genre of it’s own: American Halal Street Food.
The founders play favorites... sort of
Technically they love everything on the menu, but when we pushed for specifics, we weren’t disappointed. For Mohammed, his go-to order is the classic combo platter; Ahmed is partial to the chicken sandwich for its on-the-go convenience; and Abdelbaset is also a combo platter guy, but WITHOUT the hot sauce -- it’s a little too spicy for his taste.
And speaking of fiery, THG’s hot sauce has a Scoville rating of 100,000-130,000
In layman’s terms? That’s REALLY hot. As in hotter than a thai chile and twice as hot as a tabasco or cayenne chili, so proceed with caution.
