Did you guys know that some of the Taco Bell shops are halal in the UK? Yes, we’re actually one whole year late to this news and you’re perhaps rolling your eyes whilst reading this post. BUT at HGAT, we believe that late is better than never so we headed out to one of the […]
Tired of cooking and just want to have a restaurant quality meal in your own home? Why not opt for a halal DIY meal kit from one of your favourite restaurants. Many restaurants that serve halal have rolled out with fun kits that you can put together and eat in the comfort of your own […]

Although BW and I are from the same community, we both come from slightly different backgrounds.

One half hailing from Mumbai, India, and the other actually being East African, as his mum […]
