“The Halal Guys started in the US as a hot dog cart feeding the masses of businesspeople and travellers in Manhattan and now, we’ve expanded to over 100 locations across the US, Canada, Asia and Europe. The growth we are seeing all over is incredible, but we are particularly excited about the UK market and the big plans for expansion we have in the coming years,” said Ahmed Abouelenein, CEO of The Halal Guys. “Our first location in London was extremely well received by locals, so we are happy to bring another venue to the area to continue to serve authentic Halal dishes.”

The Halal Guys’ new location will feature its signature menu of authentic American Halal dishes, including platters and sandwiches filled with a choice of falafel, chicken, or beef gyro, and of course its baklava and baklava cheesecake for dessert.
