  • Harry: From calorie count to portion sizes,

  • we wanted to find out all the differences

  • between Halal Guys in the UK and the US.

  • This is "Food Wars."

  • In the UK, you can get your order in three portion sizes.

  • As a small platter,

  • as a regular platter,

  • or as a sandwich.

  • The Halal Guys in the US, your order can come

  • in three sizes: small, regular, sandwich.

  • We're going to weigh a regular platter in both countries

  • to see whose is the biggest.

  • [beep]

  • It's been so many episodes.

  • Why don't we just get bigger scales?

  • Bear with us one second.

  • [elevator music plays]

  • First half is about 337 grams.

  • 337 plus 321,

  • six

  • five

  • eight?

  • Quick maths.

  • This thing, we need to wash this thing.

  • It's getting funky in here.

  • Here we go, the regular.

  • Whoa, fits in perfectly.

  • 640.

  • 640 grams. That's a full meal.

  • Oh, man, this smells so good.

  • Fries in the UK only come in one portion size,

  • this one.

  • In the US, The Halal Guys also only have one size fries.

  • Look at this case. Have you seen this?

  • Do you think it's to keep them crispy,

  • so they don't get soggy?

  • Very smart. Very innovative.

  • I want to eat this so badly.

  • We gotta weigh it first.

  • This could be another brick.

  • [fries plop onto scale]

  • Ayy.

  • So, a side of fries from a UK Halal Guys

  • came to 213 grams.

  • Wait. Oh, yeah, OK. Yeah.

  • 145 grams for one size

  • of Halal Guys fries.

  • Oh, yeah. Yo. I've never gotten the fries.

  • These are good! Crispy.

  • Don't sleep on the Halal Guys fries.

  • In the UK, a side of hummus only comes in one size,

  • and it's this one right here.

  • In the US of A,

  • Halal Guys hummus only comes in one size,

  • and, of course, we are going to weigh it.

  • Harry: So, our side order of hummus came in

  • at 246 grams.

  • I'm going to eat all of this

  • as soon as the cameras stop rolling.

  • A side order of baba ghanoush in the UK

  • only comes in one size as well.

  • Joe: In the US, the baba ghanoush at The Halal Guys

  • is also just one size.

  • In the UK, you can get a side of falafel,

  • and it comes as a two-piece serving.

  • We did ask for some, but I think the guy forgot,

  • so we don't have any to show you.

  • In the US at The Halal Guys, you can get

  • your falafel in three sizes:

  • two pieces, four pieces, or six pieces.

  • We can also get falafel sandwiches.

  • Let's take some measurements.

  • Our falafel sandwich is 8 inches in diameter.

  • And for the moment you've all been waiting for,

  • we're going to measure the girth.

  • The tape measurer is really not fit to task.

  • Actually, that's going to work.

  • And our falafel sandwich has a girth of,

  • let's say, 7-and-a-bit inches.

  • From pita to pita,

  • 8 inches? Yeah?

  • Oh, look at that!

  • And it's 8 inches thick.

  • 8 and 8.

  • I like when things are just precise like that.

  • Harry: And, finally, it weighs 286 grams.

  • And a falafel sandwich at the US Halal Guys

  • weighs

  • like, exactly --

  • [burps] Excuse me.

  • Exactly 250 grams.

  • In the UK, if you want dessert

  • at Halal Guys, you can get baklava.

  • It comes in a two-piece serving.

  • Halal Guys in the US, the baklava

  • comes in one size, in this one piece.

  • This piece right here.

  • Oops, I ordered two!

  • I guess I'll just have to eat one.

  • Who am I kidding? I'm eating both of these.

  • Unfortunately, Halal Guys doesn't make

  • its nutritional information available

  • for its UK products.

  • We did find some in the store,

  • and, luckily, I took a picture.

  • From this, we now know that the sandwiches

  • range anywhere from 419 calories to 694 calories,

  • and the platters range anywhere from 471 calories

  • to 1,049 calories.

  • It's fairly safe to assume that

  • the 1,049-calorie platter is probably

  • one of the meat ones with all of the sides,

  • all of the sauces, pretty much everything you can get.

  • 1,049 calories will take you to just over

  • half of your normal daily allowance.

  • The combo platter is said to be

  • Halal Guys' most popular menu item.

  • This is a regular combo platter

  • before any white or red sauce has been added.

  • I would recommend not eating it until it is added.

  • That's just me.

  • Our regular combo platter is 794 calories,

  • 23 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat,

  • 1,998 milligrams of sodium,

  • which I believe is 86% of your daily intake,

  • and also 96 grams of carbs.

  • Of course we're adding white and red sauces, right?

  • OK.

  • The white sauce pouch.

  • One of these is roughly 330 calories,

  • 37 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat,

  • 420 milligrams of sodium.

  • 420. [bell dings]

  • And 2 grams of carbs.

  • See this guy right here?

  • Each package of their hot sauce adds only 7 calories,

  • but 89 milligrams of sodium.

  • Let's talk about the red sauce.

  • Now, according to the Halal Guys website,

  • their red sauce ranges from between

  • 100,000 to 130,000 on the Scoville scale.

  • To put that in perspective,

  • sriracha is somewhere around 2,500

  • on the same scale,

  • and the infamous "Hot Ones" Da Bomb sauce

  • is around 135,000.

  • So pretty close to this.

  • Halal Guys has something called

  • the Hot Sauce Challenge.

  • What it is, is a small platter

  • with 20 lines of their hot sauce,

  • and you've got to be able to eat

  • the whole thing in 10 minutes

  • with no assistance of any beverages,

  • not only during while you're eating it,

  • but also five minutes after.

  • Sorry, what are we doing?

  • So, one, two --

  • It's times like this where you're like,

  • "I should have a will written, just in case."

  • That's four. Oh, my God.

  • If I don't make it out of this,

  • someone tell my cat that I love him.

  • 20. I'll just put this whole thing in there.

  • [laughs]

  • This is such a bad idea.

  • Yeah.

  • All right.

  • [ominous music plays]

  • Whoa. Yo!

  • [coughs]

  • Oh, my God. This stuff is really hot.

  • Oh, man. I'm getting a metallic taste in my mouth,

  • like my mouth might be bleeding.

  • [laughs]

  • [coughs]

  • OK. Yep, that's immediately spicy.

  • No slow burn here.
