Instagram: The queue was so long 30 minutes before closing time that we decided to eat elsewhere. 15 minutes later, they reopened the line and we just had to go for it. Got this monster of a sandwich from The Halal Guys as second dinner. >< #thehalalguysph #bacontunamelt

Halal Guys In Megamall Is Finally Open

This just in! LOLJKNOTRLY.

Halal Guys finally opened last Friday in SM Megamall! For those not in the know (aka me a mere week ago), Halal Guys is a fast food cart that started their chain in no less than New York Citehhh. They actually started as a hot dog cart in 1990 but evolved into selling their famous chicken, gyro meat, rice, and pita.

A friend of mine actually went on opening day to see what they had to offer. He also kindly sent pictures of his experience so I’d be jealous I can tell you guys about it.

There was a line on opening day.
There were cute props too.
After waiting for hours…. PROFIT!

My friend’s verdict? Halal Guys noms are really tasty and super filling. Apparently, they also have the best white sauce on the face of this planet. I have yet to make my own conclusion when I do get the chance to check them out which I will this weekend. Then I can send him pictures and make him jealous as payback. Bwahahahahaha!

Halal Guys is located at the fifth floor of the new Food Hall in SM Megamall.

Biggest Food Truck Festival At McKinley West

A Megaworld project that hopes to be the next Bonifacio Global City, albeit smaller, McKinley West is tucked away in a chill area of Taguig (or is it Makati?). For now, McKinley West is majority a sea of empty lots and small roads that are mainly used as a Jeepney loading/unloading area and as an alternative route to McKinley Hill, SLEX, and EDSA.
Biggest Food Truck Festival
And now, it’s also home to the Biggest Food Truck Festival in the area. For the month of October, food trucks of different kinds will be open to public along from Thursdays to Sundays starting at 4pm onwards. We got to stop by and check out the trucks on our way home last Sunday. It was actually pleasant surprise that the trucks were still open for business at around 10pm on a Sunday night.
Some trucks were just regular trucks. Some trucks had cute boys to serve you. (I won’t spoil the fun and let you find out which ones it is.)
Some trucks were pimped up food trucks. Some are familiar brands.
The revelation of the night was Fruits in Ice Cream’s Banana Sundae. I swear, it’s a must try! Also, FIC ice cream is sold at the Food Truck Festival at a promo price of P50 a scoop.

Head on over when you get the chance! The McKinley West Biggest Food Truck Festival will be running for all of October, from Thursdays to Sundays, starting at 4pm until supplies last. Best of all, parking is freeeeeee!
