street food: If you prick me, do I not bleed white sauce?
« on: September 30, 2022, 09:58:36 PM »
my doctor asks the same questions every time: how often do you drink, do you smoke, do you take drugs. He approvingly nods after each answer and I happily bask in affirmation of my healthly lifestyle and good judgment. But I just can’t quite get away from the notion that someday he’s going pause, think about my answers, and ask “And how often do you eat street food”. I’m pretty sure that’s not going to be a pleasant conversation.

Anyhow, my wife was coaching tennis tonight which left me to choose the type of dinner spot where were she around, she’d have said “no” or more likely “are you crazy, definitely not” or, in the case of a place like the Medo Halal Cart at 8th and lex in nyc, “you’ll be hearing from my lawyers tomorrow”.

Honestly, I can’t tell the difference betwen a lot of the better halal carts but Medo has some unique spicing on their chicken, probably nothing more than an unusual paprika, but it’s absolutely delicious. The rice is fluffy, standard issue white and hot sauce, the chickpeas a nice touch.

$8 for a mess of food. if you go, I strongly suggest you avert your eyes from the cooking process and in fact the entire cart. The proper frame of mind is to imagine you’re dealing with a black box, pay your money and out pops a delicous meal. At least that’s what I keep telling my wife.

let's use this thread to post our street food experiences!

Anytime I've been to MX, I pretty much l8ve on street food! 2 things have always stood out, the achiote grilled chicken and the roasted black chicken stuffed with hard-boiled eggs. Sooooo good!!!

Jeff, that is a great-looking Halal plate! Of course I'm sorry you showed it because I forgot how much I missed them. Of course I truly can't complain because the food carts here are plentiful and many are excellent.
Yet unlike NYC, they're not cheap and not very fast. Of course, compared to NY, everyplace else is slow "Next!"
So yeah, thanks for nothin', pal!
