Inspired by the popular Halal food carts of New York City, this tiny take-out shop serves platters of grilled chicken over rice and gyros. You can choose from more than a dozen platters such as Coriander Chicken over Rice, Tabouli Chicken over Rice, and Cheese Falafel over Rice. Gyros (Greek-American-style flatbread sandwiches) come in half a dozen varieties, stuffed with chicken or falafel along with vegetables and sauce.

The chicken platters incorporate a good helping of succulent grilled chicken, along with cucumbers, tomatoes, turmeric-seasoned rice, a tangy white yogurt-based sauce and a harissa-based red sauce on the side. We were warned to apply the red sauce carefully, as it's quite spicy. (It really is.) Twenty optional toppings include shredded cheese, pickles, hummus, avocado, olives and so on.

Chicken over rice starts at around Y850 a plate, as do the gyros, with prices rising a bit depending on your add-ons. Canned sodas and bottled water are the main beverage, just like at a street cart. There's a small standing counter, but almost everyone gets their food to go.
