Arab Street welcomes its latest trendy makan joint with Overrice, a month-old casual outfit that draws inspiration from one of New York City’s most iconic takeout meals: the Halal Guys’ chicken over rice. Stories of the queue for the Halal Guys food cart's "American halal food" in Midtown New York are legendary. Our memories of it have to do with long waits in the winter for steaming-hot foil plates of the stuff: tender chicken, doner lamb, or both, heaped over yellow spiced rice, the whole thing drenched under an indiscriminate amount of their mystery white and red sauces. We joined tourists and locals alike on the nearest street corner to scarf it all down while it was still hot, and it was delicious. So we’re more than a little excited to try this local riff on the Manhattan specialty.
