Welcome to the Halalist
The Halalist, me, is someone that is a “moderate” muslim. Just a normal guy. I work hard and eat harder. I travel thousands of miles up and down the country every year for work, family and friends. This means i eat out an awful lot. Generally, i am quite open to trying anything once as long as it is Halal.
Food being served Halal is the primary focus of this reviews blog. I visit any restaurant that are known for serving halal food. I am not a certificate inspector, although I will try to see who the authority is and include that in my reviews.
My pledge to you:
I will be honest and unbiased in my opinions and reviews.
I will disclose if i have any conflicts of interests in my review, in these cases i will get my partner in experience to double check and sign off on the reviews.
I will never get paid for the reviews i do.
I had the wife and daughter up from Hertfordshire so wanted to take them for something a bit different and close to home after their long journey. No one was particularly hungry but everyone wanted to eat. The weather was freezing and as usual in Manchester it was raining. It was a Friday and we arrived at the restaurant at 7pm without a booking. I was surprised we didn’t have to wait. An hour later, and it would have been a very different story. It was packed. We were seated deep in the restaurant next to a water wall (i always love water features). A new restaurant (January 2019) based one end of Wilmslow Road (aka Curry Mile, Shisha Mile) in Manchester. The well dressed restaurant with a strong Persian theme sells classic Persian food. I have eaten a lot of persian food over the years in various places namely London and Manchester. This was one of the nicer done restaurants that i would say is good for nice evening dinner. We ordered: Starters: Ashe Reshteh (Persian Noodles and pulse soup) £4.99 Kashk-E-Badenjan (Sauteed aubergine with walnut) £4.99 Chips £1.99 Mains Walnut special (for 2) (Mixed Grill with Persian rice) […]
A funny little place in the Trafford Centre Food court serving a mixture of food. It was my first trip to Tru Street with a group of friends including visitors from the states. Tru street is an “on the street” style restaurant based in one arm of the Food court at trafford centre. It serves a combination of foods. We ordered: Starters: Kogi BBQ Pulled Chicken Tacos X3 £7.99 Hong Kong Steamed Bao Bun (Shredded Steak, Pulled Chicken, Pulled Duck £7.99 Shandong Lollipop Wings £8.25 Mains The Manchurian £14.15 The Singaporean Crispy Chilli Ginger Chicken £14.55 Henderson Bahn MI Foot long £14.25 The Extreme All American Beef Hot Dog £14.99 The Service: On arrival we were greeted by a member of staff, not overly friendly but nice enough. We asked for a table for four but said there would be a short wait even though there where a number of empty tables, the wait was 5 mins. The staff where all young, and reasonably friendly, some where dancing – which is nice to see. When asking for take-away boxes they provided some, then I had to ask for a bag (The small things make a difference). Rating: 6/10 The Environment: […]
