good halal food in Dam




i am in Dam again next week and am coming with my brother from another mother who is a Muslim and so want to take him to some good reasonably priced halal food eateries...so Pakistani, Indian, Lebanese etc

any advise welcome

Many Turkish and other Eastern restaurants claim to be halal, but I think most don't really stick by the rules.

The Bazar on Albert Cuypstraat is a nice, affordable and halal restaurant. Their food is a mixture of North African and Middle Eastern food. Also Iraqi restaurant De Eufraat on Eerste Van der Helststraat is very nice.

And of course, there's always kebab. :)
thanks Anne...i thinbk i'll give the kebab a miss, as always! But i will certainly copy down the bames of your recommendations and give em a go...the Bazar sounds interesting.

Thanks again

A very good Indian restaurant is the Balraj on Haarlemmerdijk 28.
Good prices too.

I'd be very surprised if that was the case.

I agree 100%, some of the best Indian food I've ever eaten, pretty sure they advertise as Halal as well.

I agree 100%, some of the best Indian food I've ever eaten, pretty sure they advertise as Halal as well.I was looking at the website for Balraj and it makes no mention of Halal.If it strictly Hindu food I highly doubt they will have Halal since Halal is an Arabic thing.

Didn't know that, not everywhere openly advertise it though as it can put some people off (for whatever reason) my local Kebab shop is Halal but there isn't anywhere that states it.

I would think that Indian restaurants aren't halal. For as far as I know, Indians are mostly Hindu, not Muslim, and halal food is an Islamic thing.

OK, The Balraj is only about a half a block form me. So I walked up there and asked. They are NOT halal. But the smell of the spices being cooked for the evening meal were fantastic. I have to go back there soon. On the corner of Haarlemmerkijk and Binnenorangestraat another half a block away is an Islamic butcher. So I went in to ask for a halal restaurant. He suggested the I'll have to eat there sometime too.

So there are some restaurants that are Halal then... Cheers Tall Guy.
nice one for further recommendations....boner and others...don't get it twisted, India has a huge Muslim population...thre are Muslims in many countries...so an Indian restaurant is not necessarily owned by hindu owners....they could be Christian or of the Bhai faith or even atheists...oooohh!!!

peace all
Supersayer, no worries nothings twisted, I was just having a little dig at those that thought Indian's didn't serve Halal food. ;)

Of course India has a large Muslim population. However, . And Hindus don't do halal.

Of course India has a large Muslim population. However,

Of the the remaining 20%, around three quarters are Muslim, which still leaves around 135 million muslims in India.

One day we'll no doubt enjoy the novelty of you knowing what you're piping up about before you start flapping your gums. Evidently, that won't be today, though.
In fact, in the North of the country in many cities you'll often find a Muslim majority. Most butchers in India are Muslim because they'll handle beef, whereas Hindus won't.

And that's why you don't often find pork in India, outside Goa.
I wouldn't consciously eat halal food, have you seen how they kill the poor animals? bah, I'll stick to humane methods of killing the poor beasts, slitting the throat and letting them bleed to death is just barbaric, they should be imprisoned for such heinous crimes against nature. In this day and age such a medieval way of killing animals, it's disgusting!!!!!
personnally as long as that meat ain't green and it's sessoned righteously, cooked proper i'll eat that shit...rarely eat pork...mainly a chicken and fish man...anne chill the fuk out with your highlighted wikipedia facts.

peace

Given Indonesia is a mainly Muslim country, wouldn't the legions of fab Indonesian eateries in Amsterdam have halal meat ?

But then again, not all Muslims are strict about halal. I've some Muslim and Jewish mates that aren't really that strict about halal or kosher stuff, so long as there's no pork/ham/bacon/lard etc in their food. Been with a Muslim mate to Italy and even the veg had tiny bits of Parma ham in it. My poor mate got sick of veg pizzas and pasta dishes by the end of our trip !
