    Chicken, beef, lamb and fish.

    Basically anything made with meat is my favorite food. Besides pork.

    I like grilled, steamed, baked and roasted meats. Nothing fried, b/c I don't like oil.

    Spice is good as well.

    Dammit I missed Poutine in my list, but TBH I have not had a good Poutine ever since I moved from Montreal.

    There is a place near your university called Poulet Bronze. Have their Chicken Poutine. It is a heart attack in a bowl, but by God I'd rather shave off years of my life expectancy than give up on that beauty.


    It is one of the few halal joints in Montreal serving fried chicken. It was a favourite of mine during my uni days.

    Hahaha, my math teacher used to call Poutine a "heart attack in a bowl", but yeah, I've also haven't had Poutine in a while. Will try your suggestion as soon as exams are over.

    is Poutine actually haram or halal?

    I always wanted to try it, but always feared that it might be haram, never knew.

    The sauce on it is made of beef or chicken stock and if you have it from a place that doesn't serve halal meat then the sauce won't be halal.

    ^^ All this is nonsense a lot of Indians and Pakistanis use to make their versions sound superior. Nihari stays a Nihari, and Biryani stays a Biryani as long as you enjoy what you are eating.

    I rarely get a chance to eat the desi style foods unless am paying a relative a visit in brum, tend to eat the fried food like 2-3 times a week need to cut that down, when I have stuff to do cooking is a long thing Biryani is usually a healthy option for me, when I do get to make something it I freeze 3-4 portions and ration it out

    Woh nihari it's actually true though

    In 10 years we'll hear of veggie nihari then
    Can't even imagine Nihari without beef. I once had chicken nihari and it just felt like a normal salan.

    Beef to nihari is like doodh to chai.

    Has to be Biryani. But Biryani is too great be compared with other mortal foods. So, I'm taking it out of the list. My favorite dishes are:

    - Chicken Alfredo Pasta.
    - Steaks.
    - Haleem.
    - And perhaps Lasagna.

    Basically this.

    Chicken nihari, kaddu kofta, etc. aren't real food.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but around 80% of India's population consists of Hindus. And from what I know, Hindus cannot eat beef, while a lot of them can not even eat chicken.

    I'm assuming most of you guys don't break the rules and respect your religion, meaning you refrain from eating beef (which is what I and most Muslims do when it comes to pork).

    Therefore, it would be fair to say that most Indians can't eat Nihari, no?

    Most Hindus refrain from consuming beef. But a hell lot of them consume other forms of meat from chicken, mutton, pork, pigeon, duck, etc. Around 70% Indians are non vegetarians.

    OK but even if majority cannot eat just beef, that deprives them of beef nihari and beef biryani which are two main (arguably the best, even though I prefer chicken biryani over beef biryani) types of nihari/biryani. Pigeon, duck, etc. cannot replace beef in Nihari in particular.

    Would be foolish to then just claim that the two dishes are Indian inventions.

    Think we're going off topic so we should probably end this discussion here.

    Trust me bro you've had it am 100% sure your mom or a relative must have made it for you at some point, it's just a beef/lamb stew; Nihari is just a fancy word for it. "Gosht" is another word you might be more familiar with.

    Let me know how you find it at one of them restaurants

    Oh ok, I thought maybe they used a special type of sauce or a special type of cooking method but yes had many beef dishes. Have you been to Rodizio Rico in the mailbox, most meat is halal and is top quality taste.?

    Maybe if you had it in Pakistan you'd find a difference probably not even as big between the dishes you've had before, I suspect in the restaurants here it won't be anything special. No not been there, I heard they sell pork? tend to avoid those places. There's a Japanese restaurant called Yakinori at Grand Central:

    http://www.yakinori.co.uk/grand-central/

    Have heard good things about it, need to try it. Need to double check if it is halal, the Birmingham mail reported it was in this article:

    You're probably right, the best place to have it would be Pakistan. Here they will probably just make an ordinary beef dish, so I will wait until I go back.

    Never really tried much Japanese food, what would you recommend for a novice?

    Love pizza. Whether Italian or American style. Just totally weak for it. Naughty but nice.

    Have cut down my consumption a lot since my student days - used to eat 2-4 pizzas every week!!

    More like once a fortnight now. And I try to go for thinner bases, fresh veggie toppings, dairy free cheese, classic crust.

    Doesn't always happen though - a triple greaseball cheese special with thick stuffed crust and garlic mayo dip sometimes gets the better of me !!

    Sushi, noodles and teriyaki chicken. When I don't have a clue usually I bug the waiter and tell him am a noob lol, more often then not they tend to make good recommendation with their knowledge of the menu other times you can sought of make out what is okay to try when the description under the food provides a fair amount of info.

    Yeah defo, the restaurants for pak food are average; not been pak in years but still remember how amazing the food was there compared to the UK. Although I've not been to many places in London, then again if it's not all that in our city I doubt it will be great there
