Hong Kong is a heaven for foodies as it is famous for its culinary diversity, but what if you’re looking for halal food? Here, you can find cuisines from almost all around the world. However, the inadequate number of halal certified restaurants in Hong Kong (permissible in Islam) can make for a hard scene to crack, especially if you are a newcomer to the city. So, if you are a passionate foodie but also a Muslim looking for more halal food options, this list of some of the best halal restaurants in Hong Kong can help guide you on your dining options.
