(For Some Unknown Reason) A Halal Cart Posts Calorie Info
It’s been all carts all the time this week! But this one was too good not to post… “How many calories is there in a plate of street meat” is a question I get pretty often. I guess there are a lot of people out there who are interested. I am not one of them. Unfortunately, I spotted this (accidentally, of course) posted on a cart in Midtown East. It might be worth noting, the calorie laws that went into effect earlier in the year, only apply to chain restaurants… not carts. I’m not sure whether the white sauce is included in the 680 calories that make up a lamb over rice platter. A good reporter would have asked… but like I said before- I really don’t want to know.
UPDATE: A savvy commenter pointed out that those numbers are for 100 grams, which is less than a quarter pound of food. I feel like an order of street meat weighs at least half a pound… which means that sign is kind of misleading!
