Muslims around the world, including predominantly Catholic, Philippines, celebrate the end of the fasting period of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr, the Festival of Breaking the Fast this May 12, 2021. It is celebrated through prayer, gifts, and a lavish feast. Indeed it is a time for authentic brotherhood as Christianity shares its fondness for Halal foods from our friends of Islam faith.
Halal food is prepared following a set of Islamic dietary laws and regulations that determine what is permissible, lawful and clean. Contrary to unpopular belief, any dish can be halal, as long as the meat used is religiously slaughtered and no pork or alcohol is involved. The Manila Hotel’s Café Ilang Ilang has a Halal kitchen certified by the Muslim Mindanao Halal Certification Board. This kitchen dedicated to Halal food preparation serves Indian and Middle Eastern-inspired halal dishes will whet your appetite and pay homage to its traditional roots.
Designed for proper breaking of the fast, The Manila Hotel’s Ramadan Special Halal Home Buffet set comes with dried dates and juice, chickpeas hummus, Fatoush mixed salad, roti and naan bread, vegetable biryani, tandoori chicken, lamb rogan josh, vegetable samosa, and baklava. The set is just one of the three choices for the Halal Certified Home Buffet.
