April 2, 2024, 7:00.07 pm ET



We had been watching with anticipation for the opening of this Brooklyn outpost of Halal Munchies. The colorful restaurant lives up to its name inside and out with all sorts of dishes to address your cravings.

There are several types of burgers including a giant Cheeseburger oozing with cheese on a brioche bun, along with the Baconator made with turkey bacon and something called the Heart Attack Burger.

Guests will also find other “munchies” like chicken tenders and nuggets all freshly made, along with buffalo wings. All of the dishes are available with sides, including a huge pile of seasoned fries and Mac & Cheese bits.

You can also get your Middle Eastern fix of Lamb and Chicken Gyro served as sandwiches or over rice. There’s also a Kofta and Falafel Gyro. Desserts include Red Velvet and Carrot Cake sold by the slice, along with chocolate chip cookies.

Halal Muchies is located at 7919 Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn. For more information, visit
