    Don’t be fooled--this unassuming cart is owned by Muhammed Rahman, who was a chef at the Russian Tea Room before making our kati roll dreams come true. Read more

    Go for the lamb and rice, but don't sleep on the cheesesteak. It's pretty tasty.

    Not your average chicken and rice cart--the lamb here is tender and succulent, and the rice is clean and light.

    The lamb/rice gets all the attention, but chicken pita is massively underrated. That pita is the real deal.

    Large chunks of real lamb and chicken. The sauce is to DIE FOR!!! A little pricey for carts but the quality is second to none!!!

    The cart RIGHT NEXT TO this cart is way better and cheaper. Albeit a tad slower.

    Want to eat healthy...ish? Try the tilapia - spiced with Bengali seasonings & pan-fried to order, the fish ends up being meaty & tender. Top with green chile & white sauce for the street meat effect. Read more

    Hot dog with mustard & ketchup a must!!! Crisp dog sliced down the middle and buns are toast. Woot

    Even the hot dogs are great: he brushes them with melted butter and grills them. The buns are buttered and grilled too. Much better than the "poached" dogs you get at the regular stands.

    They've been off their game lately. The guy taking orders today was completely confused. Line wasn't moving for 10 mins.

    Cart owner Mohammed Rahman was once a sous chef at the famed Russian Tea Room. Luckily for street food lovers, he now serves up delicious food - especially his lamb and falafel - at reasonable prices.

    You can't go wrong here, but my favorite is the lamb over rice. Delicious & won't leave your tummy rumbling- the chef used to work at Russian Tea Room & has won a fair share of Vendy Awards!

    Canadian culinary institute trained ex-Russian tea room sous chef will give you flavor orgasms with his grilled lamb and chicken on rice. Ask for his spicy green sauce for an extra kick

    Actual chunck pieces of marinated lamb prepared by someone who worked at the Russian Tea Room. Not your average street cart.

    This is the best street meat in NYC. Order chicken over rice for $6 and you can't go wrong.

    The spicy (dark) green sauce - added on request only - is brilliant.

    the lamb is solid, but the veggies over rice are to die for, and recession priced at 5.50!
