Well, Halal food is a bit difficult to find in Seoul/South Korea. I will try my best to try permissible Korean cuisine by Islamic standard.
Basically, I'm gonna be half vegan over there. Fruits, vegetables, seafood...hmm..totally organic. Say hello to slimmer, svelte figure Zarina with S-figure to boot. Hehehe..
Here are the list of menu in Korean with pictures that I would like to try in Seoul. However the menu would be customized for Muslim ^__^:
