53rd & 6th Halal Cart

April 28, 2009

The Halal cart on 53rd Street and 6th Avenue almost always has a huge lineup. The street cart that serves Halal Chicken & Rice is just outside the Hilton is really popular and my friend Kaushal had been talking about it for months before I actually got to try some. As you get closer to the cart you can see your chicken or beef being prepared. I don’t remember if it was shaved off a stack but I do remember seeing a lot of cut chicken on a hot plate being furiously cut up and tossed around before placing it on a bed of flavoured rice that came from a container in the cart. Hot Sauce and white sauce is optional though I avoided the hot sauce when I ate there. I found a video on youtube where someone was complaining about how spicey the chicken was. The chicken isn’t too spicey and is well flavoured. It almost tastes like a dry biryani except for the obvious fact that the spices used are really different. There are a couple of Halal carts nearby without a lineup but I was never brave enough to risk trying them. They could be just as good and I guess I should have been more adventurous and given the other carts a chance. Lineups can get pretty long and you should expect to wait for atleast 15-20 minutes before you get your food.

Cafe Paradise

April 17, 2009

Paradise has been around forever and my mom used to come here as a kid. Iv been eating here since I was a kid too and Im kinda hooked, and like my family there are a tonne of people who have been comming here for years. The place is neat and they only have booths in their restaurant unless you go to the backroom (which kinda stinks because it isnt used much). The place has been renovated a couple of years ago but still maintains some of the charm of the old restaurant. As far as food goes Id say this place is excellent. I always have their chicken steak which isnt really a steak, more of roast chicken dish with gravy nd I love it. Iv had 3 orders once so that should tell you how good it is. Their cold chicken salad is really good too as is their salli botti. They also serve Chinese here though I tihnk it would be a lot better to stick to their regular stuff. They also have spcecials which are only available on certain days so make sure you check out the specials menu when you go there. As for the service, Id say its really good too. The waiters recognize regulars and are quite knowledgable about the whole menu. Some of the waiters have been working at the restaurant for years so there really isnt much reason to complain. As far as cost goes, Id say it is a bit overpriced for what it is, but its not expensive by any means. OVerall a great place to get Parsi food.

PS – The owners love animals and feed close to 50 dogs a day!
