As much as everyone loves travelling, holidays are so much more enjoyable when you’re guaranteed food you can safely eat without a worry. One of the major takeaways of travelling is trying different foods from around the world, so it’s always extra satisfying to be able to chow down on halal offerings.
Turn your travel fasting into travel feasting. Here’s a list of the best halal restaurants that can be found in Seoul:
Probably one of the most well-known halal restaurants in South Korea, EID, which is owned by Korean Muslims, offers authentic Korean cuisine set in a cosy atmosphere at the heart of Itaewon, where you can find the most halal food in general.
EID was the first restaurant to receive certification from the Korean Muslim Foundation. Must-try dishes include tteokbokki (soft rice cake dish), beef bulgogi, jjimdak (braised chicken in a sweet spicy sauce) and jja jang bap (black bean rice).
The best thing about EID is that it offers free refills for soups, drinks and side dishes. Additionally, the restaurant is located very close to the Seoul Central Mosque.
