The Halal Guys is a chain restaurant that started as a food cart in New York City, selling authentic American halal food to Muslim taxi drivers. It’s since expanded to include locations across the U.S. and internationally. The Halal Guys responded to the growing demand for vegan options by launching its Meatless Gyro, a limited-time offering made from pea protein, brown rice, beets, mushrooms, coconut oil, and a signature spice mix. It’s roasted on a spit, shaved, and served in your choice of a rice-based platter or pita wrap sandwich. The chain also created a unique vegan tzatziki sauce made from aquafaba, or chickpea water.
These animal-free options give compassionate customers even more ways to help animals, which is why we’ve given The Halal Guys a Vegan Great Taste Award:
While the Meatless Gyro is only available at select participating locations for a limited time, The Halal Guys serves up other vegan selections on its permanent menu. Here’s how to order all the vegan options:
Meatless Gyro Platter*
This platter consists of a rice bowl topped with Meatless Gyro, lettuce, and tomatoes with your choice of toppings and a side of vegan tzatziki sauce. All additional ingredient options are vegan, except for the white sauce. Tip: For a low-carb option, ask for more lettuce instead of rice.
Meatless Gyro Sandwich*
This sandwich includes a warm pita filled with Meatless Gyro, lettuce, tomatoes, and your choice of toppings with a side of vegan tzatziki sauce. All additional ingredient options are vegan, except for the white sauce.
For this option, you get a rice bowl topped with crispy falafel, lettuce, and tomatoes with your choice of toppings. Request no white sauce to make this offering vegan.
