Toronto, (IINA), 20 Jul 2015 – The Halal Guys, famous Middle Eastern street food vendors from New York City, will be coming to Toronto but the date is yet to be announced, according to Canadian CBC news. The halal-certified restaurant will have five franchises in the city, adding to 200 franchises across the United States and the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. It will be the first one in Canada.
Halal is a type of food preparation in Islamic tradition that generally applies to meat. According to Islamic law, Allah’s name must be pronounced before slaughter of an animal for it to be considered halal, among other rules.
The Halal Guys partnered with Fransmart to manage the franchising. Fransmart is the company that brought Five Guys Burgers and Fries to Toronto.
