Top 10 Halal Cheap Eats

The lure of dining out is very hard to resist, especially when London boasts such an array of sensational cuisines. But, while our bellies get pampered with exquisite dishes, it is our poor wallets that have to endure the same torture as having to sit through the cinematic masterpiece that is Halle Berry’s “Catwoman”, on a 24 hour loop.

To alleviate the torment, I have discovered 10 Top Halal Cheap Eats for £10 or less that will not only bring joy to your palate but will give your bank balance a new lease of life.

This eatery, once again in Soho, started life as a pop-up, but thanks to its popularity it now has 2 branches. Pilau offers fast casual Indian street food style dishes, which are perfect for that lunch time fix or if you are on the go. I’d recommend the Butter Chicken Rice box for £9.00. All meat is Halal.

4. The Chicken Shop

With a hipster interior, the Chicken Shop specialises in rotisserie chicken that is spit-roasted over charcoal. You can enjoy items such as Half a Chicken for £9.50 or a Dirty Bird Burger for £7.50. There are numerous branches all over London. The chicken is Halal.

5. Potbelly

Located in Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, Potbelly transforms the humble sandwich into a gourmet experience. The prices start from £7.70, with high-end ingredients such as aged Angus beef. You will never look at a sandwich the same way again. All meats are Halal.

@potbelly_uk, where the humble sandwich is transformed to offer a gastronomical gourmet experience. @potbelly_uk is not your typical sandwich franchise. The high end ingredients used in their products will truly surprise you, which is why they are one of the global market leaders in their specialised field. The aged Angus beef used in this roast beef sandwich is from the same supplier as China Tang at The Dorchester, & at @potbelly_uk, you are paying the fraction of the price that you would at China Tang. Full review with a number of different dishes & pictures coming soon on to our website. This place is not just for sandwich lovers, but for food adventurers. #halal #halallondon #halalfood #halalfoodblogger #gourmetsandwich #sandwich #halallondonrestaurant #stratford #westfield #food #londonfood #londonrestaurants #fdblogger #foodblogger #potbelly #shakes #foodie #halalfoodie #cookies #london #instafood #food #toplondonrestaurants @top_london_restaurants
