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 […]

Good Friend Chicken

A while ago, I leaked a little secret of mine to you guys in a blog post. What secret?! A deliciously juicy, fried secret to be precise. I wrote about this place as part of my Halal Cheap Eats in London post, but really, these guys deserve a whole post to themselves because they’re that […]

Kinkao Korea

Kinkao Korea

Over the last few years of doing HGAT, I have received numerous emails from you guys giving suggestions for the next place to review, asking for recommendations, or even a simple hello! A frequent (and perhaps the most popular) message I have received has been to ask if there are any halal Korean restaurants in […]

BUILT Custom Burgers

If you’ve used my UK halal directory before (it’s pretty good, you should check it out), you’ll notice a big gaping hole in East London. Okay, it isn’t that big, but there are a lack of reviews over there, especially in the Walthamstow and Ilford areas. I can’t help it though; East is soooo far […]

Zeytoon

Zeytoon

As I’ve gotten older (a ripe 26 year old!), I’ve slowly started to develop “elderly” traits. Here is an example. On an almost weekly basis, BW and I will drive down Kilburn and I’ll recollect the story of how I once visited this amazing Afghan/Persian restaurant many years ago in Cricklewood, called Zeytoon. I’ll then […]

Zelman Meats

You know that feeling when it comes to the end of the week, and you haven’t made any plans, there is no dinner at home, and you just want to go somewhere local but aren’t sure where? Well, that was us last week. We were feeling steak with no frills attached and required no more […]

Mumbai Halal Food Guide

A couple of months ago, BW and I visited his hometown – Mumbai – for three days. I’ve travelled to Mumbai several times before, but it’s always been for wedding clothes shopping. Delicious food + trying to squeeze into a sari = not a good look. Although this trip was short and sweet, we managed […]

Hankies Marble Arch

In my old hometown, there is this one spot on the high street which I like to think is cursed. Not cursed in the spooo0ooky ghost way, but destined to be dead on arrival. Numerous (and promising) new restaurants have opened up on this new plot, only to go out of business and shut down […]

Yosma Brunch-4167

Yosma Brunch

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been preoccupied with jury service. Yes, jury service. Naturally, I can’t say anything about the case, but boy is it interesting and I actually love going! The only thing I don’t love is the food. A beyond basic sandwich,  packet of crisps and a bottle of water […]

Buddha Bar

Although 99% of my reviews are dinners with BW, I want to make it clear that we do have friends and do enjoy other people’s company too. Now, we do have a fairly meaningful age gap between us, which has yielded limited options in terms of other couples to hang out with. Thankfully, over the […]
