The purpose of this website is to promote local Muslim food establishments in a positive light. However we also promote honest reviews and will give constructive criticism on halal food when necessary.
We are foodies (people who love and enjoy food) and we only eat halal food, that’s how we came up with the name for the website — not because we give advice on what is halal and what is not. Always check any doubtful issues or questions with a scholar that you trust.
We have decided to align ourselves to “Hand Slaughtered” halal as it is a method of slaughter that is accepted by all, irrespective of sects and schools of thought. Since we only eat hand slaughtered halal, we can only share our opinion on these establishments. In order to respect the views of everyone, we are revamping our directory so that it clearly identifies all types of restaurants with specifics on their halal meat source and other particulars so everyone can make educated choices on what they decide to eat.
All of the content in this website is opinion and should not be taken as professional or authoritative. You have the ultimate responsibility over what you take away from visiting here. We have done our best to deem what we consume and promote to be halal. However, at any given time, this may change without us being aware — so please always make sure to do your own investigating.
Restaurant, grocery and product reviews:
We review businesses that use halal meats that are hand slaughtered. However, since there is a lot of confusion in the community about this, there is a chance that the places we feature are unknowingly from doubtful sources.
Comments left by our site visitors:
We do not approve of any restaurants or products that our site visitors leave in the comments section as this is considered public space and only moderated for language and/or abuse. Comments from anyone other than the admin of this site are not affiliated with Halalfoodie.ca
Our business directory is a free listing of all halal restaurants in the GTA. By adding a listing, the business agrees that (if they are a food establishment) they do not serve any pork or alcohol and all halal meats are from hand slaughtered sources (we are working on a way to specify slaughter method to let every business participate in the directory). Since we cannot check or monitor, we urge readers to always investigate business listings as well by contacting owners and asking questions.
