Arab Street welcomes a new kid on the block: Overrice. Drawing inspiration from New York City’s The Halal Guys, this Muslim-friendly restaurant doles out hearty Meditarrean rice bowls. If you’re familiar with the NYC counterpart, you’ll know it’s all about the enigmatic white and red sauce. Here, you can expect the same thing.

Each bowl comprises a bed of basmati rice, mixed salad, baked pita bread (to mop up the sauces) and your choice of toppings: chicken ($9.90), pulled beef ($10.90) or falafel ($9.90). For dessert, these guys work with home-based dessert brands. Expect the likes of Broadway Banana pudding (from $6.80) by Okieco, Brooklyn Brownie ($7.90) from Azro and Soho Gelato (from $3.50) by Empirical. Notice all the NYC references? That extends to the decor as well, with the New York skyline painted on the walls and rows of photos depicting the Big Apple. If you’re looking to reminisce your NYC trip or hankering for a decent gyro platter, you know where to hit up.
