A few months ago, I read an email from a lovely Fowzia informing me of a Syrian restaurant that I just had to try. Now, I’ve received tons of these messages before, but most have been self-promoting their own or a close family/friend’s restaurant, so I’ve been a little sceptical. But this email was different. […]
Since Aadam has been born, I’ve found it progressively more difficult to take him out to restaurants as he has gotten older. We still do manage to go out but dinner time has become much, much earlier – I’m talking 5/5:30 early – and the type of restaurants have shifted from swanky places to restaurants […]
Last month, I was kindly invited down to Zelman Meats in Soho to check out their Canadian beef offerings, which of course is all halal! Now, I love steak and have had my fair share of very good and very, very terrible halal steaks, but an excellent steak with all the trimmings would definitely would […]
Last year, I wrote about a fantastic little gem hidden away in Walthamstow called Etles Uyghur, just one out of two Uyghur restaurants in London.

Around two years ago, BW and I had the pleasure of visiting Thailand. We hopped around Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiang Mai, and whilst I could go on about how beautiful it was, I’m here to tell you about the food!
Every year, just a few days before Ramadan starts, I put together a list of restaurants in London that will be running an Iftar/Suhoor menu, and every year, the list just keeps getting better and better.
Although BW and I are from the same community, we both come from slightly different backgrounds. Whilst I’m full East African, with both parents being born in Tanzania and their parents coming from Gujarat, BW is half and half. One half hailing from Mumbai, India, and the other actually being East African, as his mum […]
Could Farzi Cafe be the best Indian restaurant in London?
Running a halal food website is not the cheapest job as one can imagine. The whole “all your meals must be free” is a myth and I can confirm that almost 95% of my meals are paid for, it adds an impartialness to my reviews I guess. With that said, I’ve been on a hunt […]
