Halal Food Instagram Heroes #10 Salt & Sheikh

After nine weeks of grilled meats, luminous veggies, piles of wings, sky-high burgers and – if we’re being honest with ourselves – frankly obscene desserts, our online ode to the best halal food bloggers on Instagram is coming to an end.

Over the past two and a bit months, we’ve lingered over vegan salads and gawked at charred steaks. We’ve posted fried chicken and cheese-smothered fries and even corned beef. The blogs have thrown us all around the world and back, making us both hungry and extremely jealous of the eaters who’ve had the pleasure of trying these delicious creations. Best of all, we’ve discovered halal food encompasses all cuisines and styles of cooking, and is available in a million more places than we first thought.

Luckily for everyone who loves to self-inflict debilitating pangs of food envy, we do have one final Halal Food Instagram Heroes for you. Number ten. The big ten. One-Zero. Ten. Okay, thanks. The esteemed honour of the final blog in the series is bestowed upon the snappily named Salt & Sheikh. Like all good Instagram food blogs, they post pleasingly lurid pictures accompanied by reviews in the form of short, punchy captions. Let’s take a look.

Here’s a filthy pile of meat-n-chips from a place called Mother Clucker in London. We think we’ve made this joke about nine thousand times before, but for the sake of the memories, we’ll drop it again: we reckon this photo should be flagged as inappropriate etc…

We’re not sure we’ve seen fish and chips in a paratha before, and we’re extremely sad about this. At least we now know this exists thanks to Salt & Sheikh.

Here’s a biryani that looks as if it has restorative powers:

And for the true madheads who have been following this series from the start, here’s the fan favourite trifecta: a pile of wings, a sky high burger and a ridiculous dessert:

Once again, we want to thank Salt & Sheikh, and every blog that’s contributed to this series, for educating us about the variety of halal food available in the UK (and abroad). If there’s a dish you want to try, there’s probably a halal version of it somewhere, because chefs, cooks and enthusiastic foodies are approaching halal dishes in daring, boundary-shattering ways.

And that means there’s a lot of good eating to be done.
