Halal food sources in Ho Chi Minh City

Halal food is increasingly available throughout VietNam. Here are some HCMC outlets.

For those curious as to what constitutes Halal food see: < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_dietary_laws >, < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halal >.

My friend the professional shopper says there is certified Halal meat being imported from New Zealand and Australia. I would trust the true compliance of this more than what passes as vegetarian here.

A genuine halal restaurant usually displays the certificate close by the entrance.

Hey Jaitch
You forget vietnam delights located at 174 le lai street dist 1

I didn't 'forget'/ At the time of the list compilation all CERTIFIED Halal places were included. If they are not certified Halal, they aren't Halal.

I have confirmed this is Certified Halal. (I check with an international Halal organisation as so many 'certificates' are forged.

Re: Halal food sources in Ho Chi Minh City

Jaitch, I just came across this post of yours. I know its dated but 'thanks' for posting all the info. I love to cook and my best are Indonesian, Arabic, Persian, and some Thai. Indo and Malay are fairly close so will give the Malay places a go. It took me some time to get my Arabic & Indian spices figured out around these parts but all is good now. Muchas Gracias !
