The Halal Guys Finally Arrive Tomorrow

June 20, 2020

With only a day from its grand opening, The Halal Guys are treating the first 100 customers in line to a free combo platter. And yes, it’s pretty much what you’d expect from the infamous hangover grub found along 53rd and 6th, but expect it to be priced more than $2.


Falafel comes filling and flavorful at PHP 90 for four pieces, pitas start at PHP 175, while rice combos start at PHP 239. Small is cool if you’re trying to go light. The regular is enough to satisfy a hungry stomach, while the notorious New York Size is enough to keep your belly filled the whole day.


You’d pretty much find what you would in NYC: great yogurt sauce, nuclear hot sauce—where’s the BBQ, though? Word has it that Halal Guys is setting up a take-away stall at BGC, at the bottom of Fully Booked High Street. While the SM Mega Fashion Hall branch has to work under the limitations of mall hours, we sure hope the High Street branch that’s coming soon opens til (very) late.
