5 Halal Breakfast Places To Check Out This Weekend

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so we’re told, but it certainly is one of the tastiest ones. Whether you’re the smashed avocado and poached eggs type of guy or prefer a proper halal English breakfast, there is no right or wrong when it comes to breakfast/brunch (except skipping it). So get together some friends and head to one of these places tomorrow morning for a truly hearty breakfast – it’s the only time of the week you can get away with eating piping hot nihari first thing in the morning! 

From instagrammable french toasts to a tiny stand selling fresh keema naans, here are 5 places that you need to check out this weekend for a halal breakfast.

5 Places To Grab A Halal Breakfast This Weekend

Koyum, Tottenham 

Koyum is the place you want to go for an absolute breakfast feast. Expect your table to be filled from edge to edge with numerous plates of different cheeses (feta, halloumi, cottage cheese), hot pans of uber buttery scrambled eggs, bowls of cream and jams, bread, olives and salad. It is definitely one you can take the family to but be sure to get there early to snag a table!

Address: 735 High Road, Tottenham, London, N178AG 

Al Enam, Acton

Think huge, flaky pastries drenched in sugar syrup and served with thick clotted cream and fluffy tanoor bread that is ideal for dipping into sweet date syrup. Yes, this is the typical Iraqi breakfast served at Al Enam in Acton. Don’t worry, they have savoury items on the menu too like pastorma (Iraqi sausage) and eggs or the makhlama omelette. The portions are gigantic over here so heading over with friends is essential. 

Breakfast served until 1pm

Royal Sweets, Watford – temporarily closed

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to tuck into this epic halwa puri breakfast from Royal Sweets. Huge, freshly fried puris are served with a plate of homely chana and a bright orange carrot halwa. The nihari is also an absolute must-order too to really make this a truly indulgent breakfast experience. The place is small so it’s best to avoid coming with a large group!

Breakfast served until 1pm on the weekends.

Crome, Oxford Street

On the hunt for somewhere instagrammable? Then a visit to Crome should be on the top of your list for this weekend! This all-day French Toast cafe serves, well, french toast which come with a variety of toppings to choose from, from the Chilli Cheese Cheeto to the Salt Beef to the Caramelised Banana and Lotus Biscoff. If you’re going for the savoury option, the brioche bread is thickly sliced before being fried in butter and topped with melted cheese or if you have ordered something sweet, the bread is dipped in a sweet cinnamon batter before being fried on the grill and dusted in cinnamon sugar.

Ararat Bread, Dalston

You may be familiar with Ararat Bread as they tend to supply numerous restaurants and food stands with their fantastic naans, but did you know they also have a small bakery on Ridley Road where they churn out 100s of naans that you can eat fresh! The menu is simple – we recommend either the cheese and garlic or the hot keema with egg – and of course, don’t expect table service (there are no tables here), but it’s all part of the charm. A great option if you’re on the go!
