Not too common.

Halal?

Let's be picky now.

There used to be one on Pine Street at about 2nd that sold "Seattle Dogs." but I haven't seen it in a few years, and that's the only cart I have ever seen in my 9 years+ working in the Belltown area.

I've never seen stands like that around here. Trucks occasionally (not with Halal food though).

Seattle isn't NYC, OP. Other differences w/NY or NE coast culture: Nobody will "get" your sarcastic humor, or they'll appear to not get it, because they consider it to be rude. They also don't appreciate being interrupted in conversations. People tend to wait their turn to speak; they don't talk over each other.

Oh, and how could I forget? The best way to meet locals and make friends is to join a recreational group of some kind (boating, hiking, biking), or one of the neighborhood social-sports teams (soccer, volleyball), nor otherwise get involved in some community effort: volunteering for a street fair or film festival, joining an established dance venue (salsa, folk, swing, contra), etc. Some East Coasters who have expected to meet women in nightclubs have been bitterly disappointed. IDK if that's your thing, but just saying.

The closest to halal you could find, would be "kosher" food venues. Good luck.

Food carts are more of a Portland thing, and it doesn't always look like the pic in the OP.

There are 4 or 5 at that plaza across from Westlake Center.

3 or 4 trucks at Fremont Sunday Market.

I've heard of a food truck pod in Magnuson Park, think it starts again in the spring.

Chuck's Hop Shop at 85th and 8th Ave NW has rotating tasty food trucks.

there are food trucks but they’re mostly one-off specialty trucks. there’s also taco trucks in south seattle. but you’re probably not gonna find new york staples like chicken over rice here.
