Food For Thought specialises in Halal Cuisine, with a range of different types of cuisines attached as Halal is more of a religious dietary requirement than a cuisine. Halal food can come in many forms, depending on the culture. In Malaysia, all Malay Cuisine can be considered Halal, but not necessarily all Malaysian cuisine. Most Arab cuisine could be considered Halal including Moroccan Cuisine, as well as the predominantly muslim diaspora of the Uyghur people in China with their Xinjiang Cuisine. Here, we list a range of Halal restaurants in Kuala Lumpur.
*Do note that some restaurants may be listed as Halal, but could be in essence pork-free, where alcohol may be served as a beverage, but may not involved in the cooking preparation.
WHAT IS HALAL FOOD?
Halal Cuisine is defined as cuisine that has been sanctified in the name of Allah and meets the Muslim dietary requirements. Meats which are considered Halal would have to be slaughtered in the name of Allah and can not be gotten by any ill means. Halal food also exclusively excludes the use of pork, which is considered unclean in the Muslim faith. Although having quite a strict requirement, some of the best food in the world is born by this including the nasi lemak from Malaysia, roast lamb skewers from Xinjiang and kebabs from the Arab world.
