The Halal Food Blog is run by Adam Shah and his wife, Maryah Qubt, who started it in 2012 because of a lack of articles and information catering to people seeking halal food. Soon after, the Singapore-based foodies took to Instagram to visually express this idea. Featuring everything from Darth Vader-inspired cupcakes to traditional Indonesian cuisine, it’s a must-follow.
This restaurant-finding account promotes halal-certified treats across the UAE, UK, and cities around the globe. The aim is to provide food aficionados with ideas for places to eat, get takeaways, or get food delivered, ensuring that each option suggested is halal.

Have Halal, Will Travel is a blog by four friends who met during a student exchange in Seoul. The idea to launch a halal food platform took root when the friends realized that their halal food options were very limited. The platform later moved to Instagram, where it has accumulated a following of 66,000, who are constantly kept up-to-date with the latest and greatest halal food spots dotted around the world, with a few picturesque travel pictures thrown into the mix.
