"Top Thai on Sullivan street. As a freshman I remember looking for halal food near the library and the rest is history. The food is great, but I religiously order only one thing: Basil Udon with beef."

"Hemo's Spot in Brooklyn, a halal, cozy juice bar and restaurant with friendly service and the best pesto chicken panini (in my humble opinion). Not only that, it's located at the heart of Bay Ridge, and after a good meal you can tour and see the beautiful community bustling about."
