For Wholesome Rice Bowls
If you're lucky enough to visit the iconic The Halal Guys in New York, you'll love this local rendition at Arab Street. Like its American counterpart, this cosy restaurant specialises in halal rice bowls loaded with slow-cooked meats, fragrant basmati rice, and a secret white sauce that's like a cross between Greek yoghurt and mayonnaise. Burppler Pei Yi Ho loves the Combo Bowl ($13.90), which comes with both chicken and pulled beef.
