New York Lauren McInnes 12 comments

Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Times Square, the focal point of New York's tourist economy and home to many a chain mega-restaurant.

Kwik Meal Cart's Lamb from 'New York a la Cart'

Kate Williams 3 comments

Hear talk of New York street food and the words "halal meat cart" will probably come up, followed by the words "white sauce" and "hot sauce." As a non-native, I had little idea what New Yorkers were actually describing before trying this recipe from New York a la Cart. Authors Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace highlight one particularly well-known halal cart called Kwik Meal where the signature dish is lamb marinated in yogurt, mashed green papaya, and a few choice spices.

Kwik Meal Cart's Lamb from 'New York a la Cart'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Hear talk of New York street food, and the words "halal meat cart" will probably come up, followed by the words "white sauce" and "hot sauce." I'd heard these words more than a few times from friends in the city, but as a non-native, I had little idea what they were actually describing. In New York a la Cart, Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace highlight one particularly well-known halal cart called Kwik Meal. Kwik Meal's signature dish is a yogurt-y lamb (as opposed to the more typical chicken) marinated with mashed green papaya and a few choice spices. Served over rice with white sauce and hot sauce (Penfold and Wallace suggest cooking down spicy salsa verde for 10 minutes or so to replicate the hot sauce), this lamb is relatively mild in spice yet super tender, with a nice balance of acidity to rich meat.

25 Beef Sandwiches We Love in NYC

New York Hally Wolhandler 9 comments

Beef, that delicious master of forms. We love it cured into salty pink pastrami and layered on rye. We love it ground with Parmesan, shaped into meatballs, and lined up on a saucy sub. We love tender short ribs and grizzly burnt ends, stringy brisket and tangy corned beef. It's just so tasty in all its outfits; here are 25 to get you drooling. More
