The Ultimate Guide to Iftar and Suhoor in London

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.

The Hubb

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 […]

Farzi Cafe

Could Farzi Cafe be the best Indian restaurant in London?

Introducing Halal Cheap Eats

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 […]

Although I love every meal of the day, I have grown to love lunch the most. It’s usually a quiet and quick affair over here – a tuna sandwich from Pret or a salad from Marks – making a big comparison to France, where lunch consists of 3-5 courses and can last over 2 hours! […]

Gunpowder Tower Bridge

Last week, something TERRIBLE happened to me and I blame BW 98%. It was 10am and I was tending to child, when the front door rang. You see, BW was expecting a very, very important package and it was estimated to be delivered between 12-2pm. I couldn’t miss it, so I quickly hop, skipped, and […]

Dining out with a kid is not a piece of cake, as I have come to find out in the last few months, and every problem that could occur has occurred. Lack of baby changing facilities and nappy explosion? Check. Quiet, peaceful dining room and a baby who has just found their voice? Yup, thats […]

Le Bab

In the last year and a half, BW switched his diet from relatively healthy with the occasional burger or two, to one that is squeaky clean and free of any gluten! Yes, I can hear some of you rolling your eyes from here, but medically speaking, it had to be done. Naturally, this caused a […]

Best Halal Dishes I’ve Eaten in 2018

I’m not sure how I feel about saying goodbye to 2018. It has certainly been life changing for me, especially now that I’m responsible for a whole little human being – very scary! A few HGAT projects had to go on hold and things definitely slowed down for me, whilst I tried my best to […]

Mitsuryu

I am in love with sushi. I could eat it for every single meal, including breakfast (yes, I’ve had sushi at 11am on a Thursday morning). However, finding sushi with no alcohol is a chore and finding sushi with no alcohol that is good is even harder. So when I came across Mitsuryu in Chinatown, […]
