Description: Somalis are Muslims and require their meat to be slaughtered by the Islamic practice known as "Halal", as a result they have often opened Halal fast food restaurants and butchers which serve other Muslim communities. This restaurant is in the area of the Mile End Road that is often called "Somaal Town".
