FROG BY ADAM HANDLING

Frog by Adam Handling

**Unfortunately, this restaurant does not offer any halal options on their menu anymore** Although having a baby should be counted as a present for BW for any of his future birthdays/anniversaries, he has always been so selfless and put me first that I decided to spoil him a little this year. Putting aside the usual […]

Halal Sunday Roast at The Great Chase

Back when HGAT started, I would strive to visit a halal restaurant when they first opened and tell you guys all about it. Over the years, I’ve come to learn that no restaurant opening is smooth sailing and in fact, there will be a whole load of teething problems that accompanies it. Now I tend […]

Indian Accent

Turning 26 hasn’t been an easy process for me. I couldn’t believe that I was no longer in the 18-25 age bracket, sigh, and now had to put myself in the older range. Is this what becoming an adult feels like? To cheer me up, BW started off the birthday celebrations with a fancy dinner […]

Black Roe

Around five years ago, Dad had taken Mum, Z, and I, on a lovely two week family trip to Hawaii. It was one of the best holidays I had been on, and I still cannot thank Dad enough for putting up with me for the 18 hours (with a stopover!) plane journey on the way […]

Chewton Glen, New Forest

For the last couple of years, BW has had a non-human work schedule that consisted of 14-hour days (7:30am-9:30pm), and a superfood diet of cigarettes and coffee. Naturally, this lifestyle would be the root of many arguments between the two of us. I would complain that he never takes me out anywhere (apart from the […]

Halal Girl About Bradford – Cona

After four long hours of driving that involved my amazing singing skills, a snow blizzard, and a stopover for Kobe Sizzlers, BW and I finally made it to Bradford! Yes, our halal UK journey took us to Bradford, which was actually the main motivation when we were planning it all. But Bradford is full of […]

Momo

Last week BW and I went on a double date with one of my oldest childhood friend and her husband, AJ². From our weekly kickboxing classes to going home to watch movies after madressa, I’ve known AJ since absolutely forever. So when she told me she was pregnant, I was over the moon and so happy […]

Gymkhana

Once we had settled into our new married life and routine, it was about time BW took me on a date. Considering it was our first date as a married couple, I felt a treat was in order, so BW booked us a table at Gymkhana – one of London’s hottest restaurants. Nestled in Mayfair, […]

China Tang

My mum is one of the greatest people to have ever existed – no sorry, she is THE greatest person in my life. She has been my best friend since I was little and even when I gave her grief during my teenage years; she still continued to love me unconditionally. One of the best […]

The Ledbury

**This restaurant no longer serves halal!** A couple of weeks ago, it was my 22nd birthday and naturally I insisted on celebrating for a whole entire week; otherwise known as birthday week!! I love birthday week; not is it just a whole week of celebrations revolving around me but it means a whole cheat week of […]
