3rd Ave Halal Cart’s Hot Sauce is Hot!
For anyone that has eaten from many different Halal carts know that not all carts serve the same hot sauce. I mean it’s hot sauce but not all of them are actually hot. Some may just give you a slight kick in the throat while some will burn your face off. So far I haven’t found a hot sauce that really kicked my ass, until now.
The 3rd Ave Halal cart on 41st street is run by a very nice couple. On my 1st trip, the lady warned me about the hot sauce being very spicy so I only got a small squirt of it.
The lamb and chicken over rice ($5) was decent, but nothing special. The hot sauce, on the other hand, was the real star. The lady in the cart was not kidding about the spiciness. Even with just a little bit, the heat was quite intense. It would’ve been fine if it was a slow burn, but the heat kicked in pretty much right away. By the time I was done with my meal I was sweating a whole lot.
Even though their combo over rice was pretty standard, I have found myself drawn back to this cart again and again thanks to the addictive hot sauce. I didn’t see the sign for their fried fish, which Blondie tried last year, but I imagine it would go amazing with their hot sauce. I’m planning to ask them for that the next time I’m there.
