If you are a visitor coming to Hanoi, it is likely that you will reside in Hoan Kiem District near the Old Quarter. This is where most tourism activities are, and also where most tourists would congregate. It is by far, the most convenient and safest area to stay at. And since many of the top attractions in Hanoi are located in this vicinity, it is inevitable that many of the Halal restaurants in Hanoi would be found here as well.
So we have heard it all before. Dubious restaurant owners claiming to serve Halal cuisine just to rip off the thousands of Muslim tourists who visit Ho Chi Minh city each year. The fact of the matter is, not all Halal restaurants take a strict stance in adhering to proper food handling procedures. As such, we have taken the extra step, and gone out in search of our favourite Muslim fare, that we have also confirmed is Halal certified.
