Flatiron Lunch: Madison Ave Halal Truck Serves Some Good Chicken
Every Friday our man UltraClay goes south of the ML boundaries in search of a delicious lunch. Sometimes it’s Murray Hill south or the Flatiron District, sometimes Gramercy and everything in between- but we just like to call it Flatiron Lunch. He’s still out of the country this week, so Donny has stepped in to take over.
A while back fellow lunch’er Goats had mentioned a halal truck on Mad btw. 27+28th. But my craving for street meat comes and goes. Sometimes it’s the farthest thing in my mind while sometimes I’ll happily eat it every freakin day. And it just so happened that while I was walking down on Madison Ave, I found the halal truck that Goats talked about and the smell of curry drew me in. It smelled delicious and struck my halal food craving.
I have been eating at the wrong halal trucks because I have never gotten a falafel with my lunch before! Fries, sure. I’m always hoping for some fries but a random falafel will do. $6 is a dollar more than what I usually pay for a combo over rice, but this one was really good. As usual the pieces of lamb were pretty standard but the pieces of chicken with the taste of curry were excellent. Combined with the hot and white sauce and the rice it was a perfect bite. I’d be happy to eat from this halal truck if I was in the area more often. Oh, and you have choice for rice (white or yellow).
Even though the truck itself seems pretty generic, the curry flavor made it stand out. And they were friendly too. I also liked that this truck is parked so close to Madison Square park. Eating outside makes everything taste better.
