How Halal Restaurants in London are Operating During Coronavirus UK
As Corona-19 unleashes it’s fury on us all, we’ve had to stand back and watch the repercussions all unfold. Our loved ones having to be in isolation due to age or underlying health conditions. The supermarket shelves being depleted by people unnecessarily hoarding, meaning those in need can’t even get their hands on a box of formula or pack of toilet paper. Weddings cancelled. Forced to take unpaid or annual leave. It is a mess that is just going to get worse.
Unfortunately, the hospitality sector has taken a huge bashing. Both big and small restaurants will suffer and who is to know which ones will survive till the end. Some have temporarily closed, making large losses due to unused produce or rent, whilst others are trying their best to remain open until complete lockdown.
You may not want to eat out right now but we can still support out fellow Muslim and non-Muslims restaurant owners out from the comfort of our homes by using their delivery service.
I have compiled a list of restaurants in London (and a couple in the UK) that are open with precautionary measures, doing collection or takeaway only, and ones that are closed until further notice.
If you are a business owner and want to be included in this list, please send an email over to hello [@]halalgirlabouttown.com
