[Updated 26 May with disclaimer] Ah, Paris - the city of love and lights! This classic European city is on so many of our bucket lists for its rich history, fashionable culture, and of course, that famous French cuisine you can't get anywhere else! 😋 Credit: Giphy If you're paying a visit to Paris and don't know where to eat yet, our handy list of some of the top 10 eateries you can drop by for a fuss-free halal meal will definitely help you out! From traditional French fine dining, to French food with an Asian twist, and even rich and hearty North African cuisine - you'll be spoilt for choice! 😍 Disclaimer:Foie gras is an iconic French dish and is on the menu of many French fine dining restaurants (including halal eateries). While it is possible to find halal sources of foie gras (where the animals have not been mistreated, and have been slaughtered according to shariah procedures), it is debatable whether one should consume it as many question the treatment of ducks in the production process. Although there are some suppliers who have developed more humane ways to produce foie gras, we are unable to confirm if the restaurantsin question adopt humane ways of producing foie gras, and have highlighted the restaurants below that do serve foie gras on their menu. We recommend our readers to dine at their own discretion.
