Meet the Salem Mashriqi, co-owner of Hazma & Madina Halal Food on the corner of Hillside Avenue and Little Neck Parkway in Glen Oaks, NY. A 2012 NYC Vendy Award Finalist.

This halal food vendor is a little out of the way compared to others, but DEFINITELY worth the trip out. What sets them apart from all the other halal food carts are the Afghani flavors incorporated into their special lamb gyro and chicken gyro recipes and sauces. Personally, I’ve never had a white sauce with so much depth of flavor! Layers of interesting spices and ingredients pop out at you, but I just can’t quite put my finger on them, but that’s the beauty of it. Here, everything is homemade – right down to the spice blends – and everything’s a secret. A true story about coming from nothing and building their own American dream. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching food. curated.! Happy Eating!

  4. What i don’t understood is actually how you’re now not
    really a lot more smartly-favored than you might be now. You’re very intelligent. You understand thus considerably when it comes to this subject, made me in my view believe it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women don’t
    seem to be interested unless it’s something to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent. All the time take care of it up!

    Quality articles or reviews is the main to be a focus for the people to
    pay a quick visit the web page, that’s what this website is providing.

    Halal slaughter is cruel and unnecessary. Should never be allowed!! We already torture the animals enough without that.
