For some of you who might not quite be familiar with the word “Halal,” it means “permitted” as prescribed in the Quran, the Mu- slim scripture. When referring to food, it means that it is okay for Muslims to eat, for it meets the Islamic dietary laws’ standards. There are some halal foods that are only available at The Halal Guys.
Itaewon, the most culturally diverse district in Seoul, is such a great place for foodies. Having lived all my life as a pseudo-gourmet, I tend to gravitate to apps to help me feed myself, and restaurants of Itaewon always top the list. If you are a food-conscious individual just like me, starting a new chapter in your foodie life here at The Halal Guys can be an awesome beginning.
The Halal Guys is a halal fast food franchise that began as a food cart in New York City. The franchise is most recognized by its primary dish: Platters and Sandwiches, served using ingredients such as chicken or gyro meat, falafel and rice, with The Halal Guys’ white sauce and a red-hot sauce.
