Given its association with the Islamic faith, halal cuisine is prevalent in major cities around the world, from Dubai to Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta to Cairo. What’s more interesting, however, is that London was ranked the second-best city in the world for halal cuisine, with 917 options. Paris also made the top 10 with 139 halal restaurants, cementing these great European capitals as two of the most cosmopolitan and diverse destinations in the world.
Sadly, there were plenty of destinations that didn’t make the cut when it came to halal-friendly dining, the most surprising of which being Rio de Janeiro. Despite its population of over 6.32 million people (4 million more than Paris), Brazil’s sprawling second city offers very little for the halal diet.
So, there you have it, the most and least accommodating cities in the world for those with dietary requirements. We truly hope this helps you pick the places that best accommodate your special dietary needs, so you can enjoy the best that a region has to offer, without fear of slipping up or falling off the wagon.
