It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I apologise… I’m going to use the usual excuses of Ramadhan and work (it is true). I hope you can forgive me!
But I do have some exciting news… A little while ago I was asked to be a guest blogger on another site and now Ramadhan’s over and the eating has recommenced, here it is http://halaleatout.com/halal/its-not-fiction-its-pop-brixton/
Some of you will have already read it, but for those that haven’t please check it out. Plus you can find other interesting blogs and general halal info on the site.
Such an honour and lovely gesture of recognition to be featured on someone else’s page! Thank you to Juwel and the rest of the team for getting in touch 🙂
Some new material coming from me soon… I promise! Stay tuned 😉
Congratulations to Saif for winning the Fatburger competition!! Woop woop! A meal for two will be on its way to you very shortly.
I look forward to seeing a photo of it!
To those who entered, thank you so much for taking the time to do so. All the entries were delicious! I’ve just got to find time to make them all now… Although I suspect that’ll mean new larger jeans for me!
But seriously it means a lot having others contributing to my blog, so please do carry on. Hope to hear from you all soon 🙂
You heard it here first guys (well I hope so anyway), Fatburger is opening its first branch in the UK in Camden and it will be 100% HALAL. I know why I will be obese by the end of the year!
So I was going to do my usual rhyming thing, something like ‘I could murder a Fatburger’ (actually that’s pretty good, I’m going to keep that one in my back pocket!). But I didn’t, because this story is so big that I had to get to the point…
It is currently scheduled to open in June this year, so not too long to wait, and will be situated on Jamestown Road, where Yo Sushi used to be right next to Byron. The burger competition is hotting up! Gone will be the days when we gaze defeated and salivating at everyone eating those delicious looking Five Guys burgers… Such a momentous day for us halals!
For those that don’t know (shame on you), Fatburger is a US burger chain much like Five Guys in that it is fast food, but the burgers are made fresh from lean beef (not like the cheap sloppy stuff you get at your local kebab shop, no offence to kebab shop owners). It was supposedly started in 1952 by a woman (woop woop!) and it now operates in 29, soon to be 30 countries around the world.
It has been made famous by American Hip Hop and RnB artists opening up their own branches, like Mr West, Pharrell, Montell Jordan and Queen Latifah… Magic Johnson also got in on the action.
Keep checking back here for the inside scoop and updates on what’s going on. Also I’ll hopefully have some delicious Fatburger prizes for you lovely people… I’ll see what I can rustle up! In the meantime… I wish you lovely juicy Fatburger eating dreams 🙂
Hope you guys are as excited as I am!
Guys!! Great news… Morrisons has now started stocking halal pick ‘n’ mix! So get your asses there to show your support and make sure it’s here to stay!
For me this is a complete breakthrough… Firstly a major supermarket is stocking a halal product over the counter, not pre-packaged and is not afraid of any backlash. Instead the supermarket has realised the importance of catering for the Muslim community and respecting different diets.
Secondly… The Daily Mail (yes you heard me right) is celebrating the news… http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3040047/Morrisons-halal-pick-mix-sale-Britain.html.
Now if I remember correctly, The Daily Mail was the newspaper screaming and shouting about the fact Pizza Express and others use halal chicken and do not openly advertise it. So the second victory (yay us!) is that The Daily Mail is happy about the news and putting such a positive light on it. Woop woop!
See you guys at a Morrisons somewhere 😉
