The 2020 List of Michelin Starred Restaurants in London that Serve Halal
Yesterday, the Michelin Guide announced the 2020 star ratings for restaurants in London. There were stars lost, stars gained, restaurants closing, and even exciting new entries on to the list! Last year, we featured a piece on the Michelin-starred restaurants in London that serve halal options on their menu and found that 23 of the featured establishments out of 70 were able to cater for us. Whilst this may not be a huge number, it certainly makes a change to what was available to us 10 years ago.
Unfortunately, the list of Michelin-starred restaurants in London that do offer halal options has shortened this year! Benares and Galvin at Windows have lost their stars, as well as Araki, the first Japanese in London to win 3 stars, who have now lost all their stars as the chef headed back to Japan. Yikes.
Sadly, there are no halal restaurants* on the list, more so establishments that serve a partial halal menu or halal on request. Let’s do away with the weekly opening of a new halal burger joint and focus on creating outstanding halal restaurants that are worthy of a star, or two, or maybe three!
*There is a difference between a halal restaurant and one that serves halal. A halal restaurant is one that tends to be run by a Muslim and serves all halal meats on their menu. A restaurant that serves halal is an establishment that is usually owned by a non-muslim but can cater for halal – they usually have a partial halal menu.
