The recent Halal gastronomical boom that has hit London is what’s been the most trending topic as of late. From gourmet burgers to Old-School American Diners, Muslims can finally feel spoilt for choice on their foodie adventures. Thanks to the diversity and size of a city such as London; the food choices here are close to endless! However ask any Londoner, finding a decent place to eat is often times most challenging! Well worry not, from our experiences and routine struggles we have compiled here what we think are 5 of the best halal eats in London right now!
Dishoom | Shoreditch // Covent Garden
From Bombay to London. Laid back yet welcoming but not your typical Indian cafe. One step in and you are taken back in time. Every dish shares a story be it breakfast, lunch or even a quick bite! Thums Up! (Mango and fennel lassi all the way!)
Red Iron Burgers | Uxbridge UB8 ILQ
If you are after a satisfying yet wholesome burger then this is the place for you. The people here take pride in their quality sourced meat. You won’t find any of that processed stuff served here! Go for their signature Red Iron Burger.
The Meat Co | Westfield W12 7GA
Heaven for meat-heads and steak connoisseurs. Contemporary design and great service. A bit on the pricey side but it’s definitely worth your money. Try the fillet steak!
Stickywings | Brick Lane E1 6RF
Cosy little place located on Brick Lane. And no, it’s not a curry house; it’s actually an American joint serving authentic Buffalo wings, none of the copycat stuff! Try their different seasoned wings (US portions are a must!).
The Crepe Shop | Whitechapel E1 1JU
Mmmm what better way than to complete this list off with dessert! Freshly baked crepes to order made from locally sourced ingredients and if you are not in the mood for crepe then there’s much more to choose from!
Anyways these are only 5 places we think you should definitely check out! Seeing as how the Halal food scene is ever growing, who knows what your next meal will be. So say no more to veggie pastas and fish burgers! Go out and enjoy some proper Halal grub!
