Indian Street Kitchen

How many times have you guys visited a street food market and found that the only halal option available to us are Indian/Pakistani/Middle Eastern stalls serving kebab rolls? Sigh, this has happened to me at least 10 times, with the exception of Makatcha and Motherclucker. And even though I refuse to buy anything, I’ll somehow […]

Da Ja Chicken

When it comes to fried chicken, I don’t think I’ve had a deeper connection like this with anything or anyone else. There is something about the way the coating crunches upon biting in, followed by the succulent chicken meat, that just makes you feel all giddy inside. Putting my love for fried chicken aside for […]

Pilau soho

Pilau

Pilau restaurant has always been on my radar since they first popped up in Fitzrovia. With the promises of creamy butter chicken wraps, mouth-meltingly soft lamb pilau, and frothy mango lassis, and with the bonus of being halal, I was not surprised reading all the rave reviews Pilau was receiving.

Of course, with halal restaurants these days, we’re still stuck on the burger wave so I’ve turned my attention to street food stalls who offer interesting and exotic dishes, such as […]

Kothu Kothu

Kothu, which literally translates to ‘chop’, is a street food speciality found on the roadsides in Sri Lanka. It is made using roti (which reminded me of paratha), vegetables, eggs, meat, and spices. Kothu Kothu (“chop chop”) have brought this concept over to London, and are now serving up their own take of the Sri […]

Mother Clucker

When I think of school, my fondest memories are those frequent visits after school to all those halal fried chicken shops on the high street. The spicy wings at Chicken Cottage were a weekly staple and I was, unashamedly, a regular at Sam’s, with my classic strips burger and chilli sauce. PFC, XFC, HFC, Al Halal […]

Makatcha

During the working week, I’ve come to discover that lunchtime is my weak spot, especially when I’ve run out the house with a banana and a coffee for breakfast. I become this hangry, difficult, half-human which can only be tamed with a delicious, hearty lunch. However, eating at a restaurant every lunchtime is not a […]
