The iconic chain started as a food cart on a corner of 53rd Street and Sixth Avenue has arrived in Seoul. This Itaewon location has got friendly staff in the iconic yellow uniform, and the fresh ingredients that Halal Guys has been known for. For the menu, you choose between a sandwich and a platter which comes with rice and pita bread, then meat (chicken or gyro) or falafel that goes into your dish. For those who prefer meat, we recommend the combo which is a combination of both chicken and gyro. The falafels here aren’t greasy, but unfortunately don’t have much texture to them (still, having a vegetarian option at a fast food-type joint is always nice). You can adjust the amount of tomatoes and lettuce, and add other ingredients such as pickles, onions, black olives and jalapeños of your choosing at a small cost. The last step is choosing a sauce, between the white sauce, hot sauce and barbecue. We recommend you go with both the iconic white and hot sauce at the same time. As for the dessert, there’s baklava which even in the United States is sold only at the restaurant locations. Halal Guys opens until 10pm on weekdays, and till 3am on weekends—it’s an awesome addition to Itaewon’s post-drinking spots.
