NYC Meets the OC with the Opening of The Halal Guys
We dined as a guest of the venue
Who doesn’t love New York City street food? The last time I was in New York, I took the subway in freezing temperatures to get myself a gyro from The Halal Guys.
Guess what? OC locals no longer have to fly across the country, and put on snow boots to get some of America’s favorite street food from The Halal Guys. Because they are opening their first Southern California location right here in Costa Mesa on October 2nd!
I had the pleasure of taking my daughter with me to a pre-opening of The Halal Guys to see if they are living up to the NY reputation. The minute that we walked in the door, we were greeted by friendly staff that walked us through the ordering process.
Ordering is simple.
1. Either go with a plate or a gyro.
2. Add a lot of white sauce, and a hint of their hot sauce.
3. Snap a picture of your food.
4. Share it on social media with the hashtag #TheHalalGuysSocal
5. BAM! Get ready to have your taste buds tantalized!
When dining, I ordered the plate that came with a large serving of lettuce, rice, tomatoes, meat and extra white sauce. I blended the entire meal together in the circular metal dish and savored every bite.
While I went to the plate, my daughter opted for the gyro. With the first bite she said, “Oh my gosh, this is the best gyro I have ever had, and I don’t even like tomatoes.” She barely let me sneak in a small bite of her gyro, and it didn’t disappoint.
The Halal Guys are one of our new favorite places in Orange County to get a quick bite to eat with the kids. The restaurant has a family-friendly vibe, and the staff is guaranteed to make your family feel at home.
The restaurant is opening in Costa Mesa on October 2nd, and offering awesome swag to the first 100 guests. Don’t miss enjoying the flavors of NYC right here in Orange County at the all-new Halal Guys in Costa Mesa. They are located just a couple of blocks away from South Coast Plaza at 3033 Bristol Street in Costa Mesa. See you there on October 2nd!
