Halal Girl About Town’s Top Five Restaurants in London

In her first guest blog for Ummahsonic, Halal Girl About Town tells us about her five favourite restaurants in London.

The food scene in London is always evolving. One minute, tacos are the hottest thing, and the next, they were soo last week. So when it comes to halal in this diverse foodie capital, where do you even start? Well, I’ve done the tasting, sorry, I mean, research for you and made a list of my five favourite halal restaurants in London right now.

Jamavar

London

Jamavar reigns the title of being the best Indian restaurant in London right now. Although their grilled lamb and chicken items are superb, the stone bass is my favourite dish in London this year.  This is the ideal place for taking the missus for an anniversary or birthday dinner.

Here’s everything you need to know:

  • All meat is halal, except game.
  • Pork and alcohol is present, but cooked separately.
  • Location: 8 Mount Street, Mayfair, W1K 3NF.

Burger UK

London

I hear you, not another burger joint, but hear me out. Burger UK do good burgers, without a doubt, but they also specialise in fantastic, crispy fried chicken. As you bite in, the crunch from the skin followed by the juiciness of the chicken is a winning combination for me. Bonus is that they focus on using tayyib (grass-fed and free-range) products.

  • All meat is halal.
  • No pork or alcohol is present here.
  • Location: 8 Ferdinand Street, Chalk Farm Road, NW1 83R.
  • My review.

Red Iron Steakhouse

London

Red Iron started off as London’s first halal burger restaurant, and has now ventured into a halal premium steakhouse. Expect mouth-melting wagyu steaks, crunchy triple cooked chips, and gooey sticky toffee puddings, alongside a chic and cool dining room that is perfect for date night.

  • All meat is halal.
  • No pork or alcohol present here.
  • Location: 280 High Street, Uxbridge, UB8 1LQ.
  • My review.

Lokhandwala

London

 

When it comes to Indian food, big portions are the norm; Lokhandwala, on the other hand, specialise in small Indian sharing plates. The menu consists of juicy mini sliders, meaty lamb chops, and a play on kheer brûlée (creme brûlée using kheer – it’s genius!), and it’s the type of place you can take Mum and Dad, too.

  • All meat is halal
  • No pork but alcohol present
  • Location: 93 Charlotte Street, Bloomsbury, W1T 4PY
  • My review.

Roti King

Roti King is one of London’s best kept secrets. Hidden on a side road behind Euston station, you’ll be drawn in with the tantalising aromas of the freshly made rotis and curries. Opt for their classic dishes; the buttery, flaky roti served with spicy house dahl or the nasi lemak served with mini crispy fried chicken drumsticks, for a real taste of Malaysia.

  • All meat is halal
  • No pork but BYOB
  • Location: 40 Doric Way, Kings Cross, NW1 1LH
  • My review.
