Finding halal or Muslim-friendly Michelin-listed restaurants can be tricky, but they do exist! Here are three esteemed restaurants that are loved by foodies all around the world.
- Sora no Iro, Tokyo, Japan
No trip to Tokyo is complete without tasting a bowl of scrumptious ramen. Unfortunately, finding a place that serves halal (or Muslim-friendly) ramen is not an easy feat as the dish traditionally uses pork bone broth. But you can put your worries aside at Sora no Iro, a vegetarian ramen restaurant that has been recognized by the Michelin guide! All broth is made using vegetables and no meat and alcohol is served here.
- Hjh Maimunah Restaurant, Singapore
Did you know that Hjh Maimunah Restaurant is the only Nasi Padang restaurant in Singapore that has been awarded the prestigious Bib Gourmand rating in the Michelin Guide Singapore last year? Previously, they were also recognized by Michelin in 2016, which just proves the restaurant’s merit. Hjh Maimunah Restaurant is a hit among locals and tourists alike and widely frequented for their kampung-styled traditional Malay and Indonesian cuisine.
- Pollen Street Social, London, England
Muslim diners are definitely in for a treat at Pollen Street Social as this Michelin-starred restaurant offers both vegetarian and vegan menus! Chef Jason Atherton and his team takes pride in serving the best of British, like the sea bass from Cornwall, slow-cooked Heritage Breeds Copper Maran egg, and the enchanting Bronte pistachio soufflé with 70% chocolate and a dollop of Madagascan vanilla ice cream. Do note that non-halal menu and alcohol are also served here.
