Sometimes walking 5 blocks for lunch seems a bit far, but it’s not if it’s for the Briyani Cart on 46th and 6th. Once you get there however you’ll soon notice you’re not alone – there’s usually a long line before 11:45 AM. Actually the line is a bit longer now after the Briyani cart won the coveted 2009 vendy award this year. So large is the demand, the owners opened a 2nd cart adjacent to the original. Why people don’t go to the 2nd cart still, I don’t really understand. I haven’t tried the other Briyani carts across the 6th Ave, but there’s also quite crowd on most days.

What’s Briyani? It’s a rice based dish filled with flavorful spices, dried fruits, meat, fish, eggs, and/or vegetables. As a principle dish of Muslim travelers, Briyani has at least a half dozen varieties all across the Arabia, India and South East Asia. At the Midtown Briyani cart, they serve it with Chicken ($6) or plain vegetable ($5.5). The Briyani is amazingly rich in flavor – the spices are really cooked into and throughout the rice. Each dish comes with spicy pickles and boiled egg. Check it out!
