The Vendy Awards is an annual street food competition which gives out awards to the best street food in New York City, and a few other lesser-than cities. Public nominations are made to determine who will compete against each other head-to-head at a judged event.
Halal food vendors are more popular than ever in New York City, reaching a clientele that extends far beyond Muslim Americans who adhere to halal dietary restrictions. One need only walk outside at lunchtime in Manhattan to see lines of people waiting for halal, stretching down the block.
