International Students Tips: Halal Food in London

By PaulineComms 21 Nov 2023

As a Muslim student coming to London for the first time, you must be thinking, will I find halal food? Will it be easy? Will I have to look at ingredients for everything I want to eat? All of these questions are valid and I had the same concerns when I first moved to London in September. However, a great thing about London is that it is a multicultural hub. There is something here for everyone, you just have to look in the nooks and crannies - down below are a few places to get you started. 

Tariq Halal Meats 

Visit in store or order online, they have a wide selection of meat from lamb to turkey. They have ready made meals for if you are feeling lazy along with frozen goods for you to oil fry or air fry. They have marinated meat available for you with a wide selection of spices and home-made sauces. Their website is fully equipped to cater to your cravings.
