Finding Halal food is undoubtedly one of the biggest concerns of Muslim travelers when they are abroad. Everything is fine in places where Muslims make up the majority, and there is no need to hunt down Halal restaurants.
Elsewhere, however, applications that help identify Halal food establishments and products can be beneficial.
You should check out Travelstart Nigeria for booking on any of your travel trips, and when you get to your location, these apps would be a useful tool for you.
We would therefore like to share FIVE applications that have exactly that function and more, as Best Halaal Food Guide.
A name that is familiar to Muslim travelers, Zabihah is an established website that advertises itself as the “world’s largest guide to Halal restaurants and markets.” It has gone from being a regional guide in the late 1990s to what is now a giant brand with loyal followers.
Zabihah has restaurants, markets, and mosques in places such as North America, Europe, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Africa. More than 20,000 of their listings are reviewed. In addition to reading comments, users of the Zabihah application can check restaurant details, such as Halal authenticity, address, time, price and ratings.
The Zabihah iPhone application has obtained more than 500,000 downloads since its launch. Its popularity is partly thanks to the efforts of Zabihah and its 2,500 associated restaurants to offer exclusive offers to travelers. These offers can be easily redeemed by displaying the coupon for the application at the counter.
The Zabihah application is available on iOS and Android.
2) Halal Dining Club
Launched in 2016 after a crowdfunding campaign, Halal Dining Club has more than 90,000 registered users. The application lists thousands of restaurants around the world, although its directory is more complete in nine cities in particular: Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong (Kowloon), London, Paris, New York, Toronto, Manchester, and Birmingham.
In addition to facilitating searches for restaurants that are fully certified or offer partially certified menus or seafood, the Halal Dining Club application allows users to read reviews, create and discover collections, reserve restaurants and earn loyalty points. It is really an integrated application that aims to be an all-in-one stop where a community of Muslims can collaborate.
As your restaurant database expands continuously with the help of active users, the application is increasingly valuable every day.

3) Crave Halal
The Crave Halal application, which covers restaurants in South Korea, the United States, and Canada, prides itself on offering an up-to-date and accurate database. To guarantee this, the team behind the Crave Halal application would call each and every one of the restaurants to manually verify their Halal status, which we must say is not easy, considering that their database has more than 13,000 Halal restaurants!
In the app, users can also see the most popular Halal restaurants in an area, as well as open a map to see how many Halal options are near them.
