Food........

heh, heh.......

Halal Food

Halal food has become so popular in Britain that while there are approximately 3 million Muslims living here, there are around 6 million consumers of Halal meat, a reflection on the multicultural lifestyles and attitudes in Britain.

Halal is not a specific type of cuisine. Rather, it takes the form of food from Muslim cultures, particularly the crescent of countries stretching from Morocco in North Africa to Indonesia and Malaysia in Southeast Asia. This means Halal food can be everything from Moroccan tagines, Turkish kofte and Lebanese mezze, to Persian kebabs, Pakistani biryanis, and Malaysian nasi goreng.

The demand for Halal food from Britain’s Muslims has meant that a wide variety of food not normally associated with Halal food has become available, from fried chicken to Chinese and Mexican foods.

London is home to the UK’s largest Muslim community – 2 in 12 Londoners are Muslim – so you’ll find no shortage of Halal food in the city. London is a multicultural city full of diversity, which is even shown in the food. So many people in London enjoy eating Halal food that non-exclusive Halal restaurants have started to put Halal dishes on their menus.

There are hundreds of Halal restaurants in London, and you’ll find a wide variety of Halal restaurants and shops in most parts of the city. Areas like Edgware Road, Bayswater, Kensington, Westbourne Grove and Brick Lane are full of great restaurants and cafés serving delicious Halal food.

Outside of London, key areas where you can find Halal food range from the popular curry houses of Leeds and Bradford in Yorkshire, to Birmingham, the home of Balti cuisine (a uniquely British variant of South Asian curries). Other popular areas for Halal food are Leicestershire, Glasgow and Edinburgh, although you’ll almost certainly be able to find a Halal food outlet in most cities and towns across Britain.

You should see all the Italian and Chinese restaurants here in the U.S. Then there's that Scottish chain of franchised restaurants.

Brick Lane is such a popular place to eat that some of the restaurant owners can afford to buy themselves a new car. Of course, you wouldn't want him as a neighbour, parking that old crate in his drive. The property prices would plummet....

To stop vehicles riding over or parking on the pavement (sidewalk).

It's actually been an offence to park on the pavement at all for the past couple of decades anyway.

I don't think the practice will prevail in the EU for too much longer. Just a hunch.

Thank you. Got any pics of Threadneedle Street? I've often wondered if a shop on that street still houses an art gallery/publishing house/bookseller or what have you. I see this print regularly...


and along the bottom is a Threadneedle address from the late 1800's.

I always wonder if it's still there. If I ever crossed over for a visit, would absolutely make it a must see.
