Masjid Umar

If there’s one thing Leicester’s Evington Road isn’t short of, it’s Halal food, with most dining establishments firmly adhering to the Halal Monitoring Committee’s (HMC) certification initiative.

This means that restaurants with the HMC insignia have been validated for selling HMC meat that’s been hand-slaughtered without stunning, with full traceability to the supply chain.

What’s also of convenience after a good dine at anyone of the many cuisines available up and down this road, is that at the end of the parade of high street shops, there’s the main mosque: Masjid Umar.

What we’ve done is not just collate 22 different restaurants, eateries and takeaways for your convenience, but also indicated both their hygiene rating and if they’re HMC certified.

BRGR.BRO

Flaming Hot Chicken – #FtLionAwards & Readers’ Choice Best Burger of 2019!

We had the pleasure of reviewing them last year where they not only impressed with a 4/5 rating, but their fantastic Grilled Flaming Hot Chicken also won our #FtLionAwards Best Burger of the Year, while being voted our Readers’ Choice too.

Now the idea behind sliders, given their daintiness, is to consider ordering either BRGR.BRO’s 2-slider box for just £4.99, or the more popular 3-slider box for £6.99, with all burgers available in either a charcoal bun or brioche, and coming with some incredibly addictive skin-on fries.

These guys also did one of the best versions of McD’s Filet-O-Fish we’ve had in quite some time, along with this huge bowl of delicious Grilled Chicken Salad, which was so well executed.

But, do NOT forget to try their freshly-made Classic Pancake with maple syrup – an extremely generous dessert which can be topped with either plenty of crushed Oreo and Hershey’s, or Lotus Biscoff & Caramel.

If you are in the vicinity, then BRGR.BRO needs to be, as a matter of priority, on your restaurants to try in Leicester.

breakfast Chaii Wala Indian Halal restaurant Coventry Road Birmingham Karak Chaii

#FtLionAwards 2019 – Readers’ Choice: Karak Chaii

This place is always packed during the evening; and we can understand why too because their Karak Tea was voted by you as our Readers’ Choice: Best Beverage of the year during last year’s #FtLionAwards.

Their menu is renowned for serving street snacks with plenty of beautifully brewed teas and coffees which can be enjoyed with things like a selection of rotis, Bombay sandwiches, Masala Chips.

And since they open early too at 7.30am on weekdays and 9.30 on weekends, we’d seriously recommend their desi breakfast too which, while coming with their “special” masala omelette and at under a fiver, is a no brainer!

Having launched over 4-years-ago, Chaiiwala now boasts cafes across the UK in places like London, Birmingham, Leicester, Cardiff, Bradford, Bolton and Blackburn among others.
