As we head into Ramadan, the scope of the #coronavirus pandemic is only beginning to be known. In addition to the danger to lives is the threat to the livelihoods of people who depend on our social interaction. That includes the tens of thousands of halal restaurants that we have worked with for decades, who are in danger of closing for good the longer they remain shuttered.

We're calling on our users to be #RamadanStrong and keep patronizing our local halal restaurants with takeout and delivery now through the month of Ramadan. Enjoy good food in the company of your family and help ensure that our ecosystem of ethical, community-driven small businesses keeps us fed for years to come.

The 10 Best Halal Restaurants In America

"Alhamdulillah. GPS has replaced dashboard covered maps, immigrant Muslim families have collectively transitioned to adopting the indestructible Toyota Camry, and it’s far less difficult to find the nearest Halal restaurant because there’s an app for that."

This top 10 list includes a review of Bebop Korean-Mexican Grill in Fairfax, VA by our founder Shahed Amanullah. Enjoy!

Because Halal is about so much more than food carts.

As halal food wins over new audiences, some fear it's losing its soul

"Pushing growth in the market are first-generation Muslim Americans, whose tastes have moved beyond their immigrant parents’ foods to the staples of their adopted countries—meat pies and toad-in-the-hole in Great Britain, bacon cheeseburgers and barbecue in the United States.

“They can celebrate their comfort food as American Muslims—burgers, tacos, pizza,” Shahed Amanullah says. “That’s why the fastest growing type of food you find on Zabihah is the Americana, the chicken and waffles. People want the halal version of what everybody else is eating so they can project to their American peers, ‘I can be one of you without sacrificing what is important to me.’”

When Amanullah launched his website in 2009, it listed 200 halal restaurants, most of them in California, where he then was based. It has now verified 40,000 halal restaurants and markets around the world. Most of the site’s growth comes from Muslim-minority countries such as the United Kingdom, the US, Canada, and Russia, he says.

- From The New Food Economy

The market for halal food is expanding rapidly. But where some see opportunity, other see an attempt to reduce Islam to a marketing buzzword.

How the Travel Industry Is Catering to Muslims - Discovery

Global Muslim visitor arrivals grew from 121 million in 2016 to 131 million in 2017; by 2020, numbers are predicted to rise to 156 million, accounting for 10 percent of the global travel segment. The key concerns for these travelers tend to be access to convenient prayer facilities throughout a day’s sightseeing, being able to enjoy halal-approved local cuisine and feeling safe and welcome as a Muslim.

"Halal tourism is an organic response from today’s Muslims to the heightened social and political tensions of the day," says Shahed Amanullah, founder of Zabihah, an app that locates halal food around the world. "It helps Muslims find their own spaces in this world, reinforce their identities and recharge."

Thanks to Sarah Khan for including us in Cathay Pacific's travel magazine!

The growing segment of Muslim travellers has inspired the launch of halal-friendly apps and destination guides as well as special offerings from hotels and attractions

The Old West’s Muslim Tamale King

When people think of halal food in the Americas, they think of a fairly recent phenomenon. Nothing could be farther than the truth. Muslims have been in North America before there was independent countries here, and of course they brought their food with them and influenced local cuisine (witness the al pastor tacos of Mexico that were a product of Lebanese immigration to Mexico in the early 1900s)

This, however, appears to be the first record of an actual halal restaurant serving the public - an Afghan immigrant to Wyoming who was called "Hot Tamale Louis" who served hand-slaughtered halal tamales and hamburgers out of a Sheridan, WY storefront in 1914.

Read this story and you'll see how food helped this Muslim immigrant bridge cultures, navigate politics, and win the hearts of the frontier.

How a South Asian immigrant became a Wyoming fast-food legend and received American citizenship—twice.

This is the husband-and-wife team behind @malaysiakopitiam. They have been serving authentic Malaysian food in the DC area for over a decade. Even though they are not Muslim, they have faithfully prepared their food with halal meat to best serve Muslim Malaysians as well as the greater community. “We don’t have to run a restaurant,” they said. “We do it because we love to cook and serve the best Malaysian food.” #malaysia #malaysianfood #currylaksa #novafood #halalfood #zabihah #dmvfoodie

‘I Wanted a Steak Burrito’: Halal Restaurants Put Mexican on Menu to Sate Expanding Palates

The Wall Street Journal covers one of the newest trends on our platform - the increasing number of halal Mexican restaurants in the US. Look for exclusive market data in this article provided by us from over the past decade. (Apologies in advance for the paywall.)

As a fan of Mexican food, Abul Hashem has often found himself frustrated that many popular menu items at restaurants specializing in the cuisine were off-limits—so he opened his own hala Mexican joint.

12/15/2018

Have you eaten at a halal Mexican restaurant lately? Did you think it was authentic? Did you like the experience?

A reporter is working on a story about this and would like to talk to you if you don't mind sharing your experiences. If you're interested, message us.
