Fans of Halal Guys and NYC-style street meat will have another place to congregate in front of Downtown's Hero Shop.

Though Eric Park has "53rd and 6th Halal Lamb & Rice" as a dish at ROOTS by Black Hogg, his Downtown 'wich spot Hero Shop is hawking an homage to the New York City street meet starting this week. Though soft open last night, hundreds of people lined up to get a taste of some lamb & rice and chicken & rice, seasoned just like they do in Midtown.

Hero Shop's Instagram shows a bit of what the aluminum foil box will look like, with a similar white sauce and super spicy harissa, along with pita bread, lettuce, and that terrible terrific orange rice. At the moment, the street meat is offered from 7 to 10 p.m., Wednesday to Saturday, though late night hours are in the works. In the meantime, Hero Shop will maintain its concept and reduce hours to 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Downtown.
