Halal Navi Team Went on Ultimate Japan Halal Foodie Trip And Here’s 11 Halal Restaurants We’ve Tried

Trying out local foods when travelling is a must and the most anticipated itinerary (for us that is)! Imagine getting to taste the ORIGINAL sushi and takoyaki that you’ve always ate in your home country *drools* To us, enjoying local food is a part of experiencing a country’s culture which is why we did this trip so more Muslims in Japan can experience themselves a part of Japan without sacrificing your religion 😉

It was an amazing experience to travel from Tokyo to Kansai to try out various type of foods (and taste!) and although roaming around Japan can be pretty expensive, but with 7 days Whole Japan Rail Pass we managed to move around Japan to hunt Halal food for cheaps! We definitely recommend you to take up this 7 days Whole Japan Rail Pass to follow us on our foodie trip. Well,   Ikimasho!

18 – 20 Nov 2017 ; TOKYO

1. Ramen Honolu Ebisu, Tokyo

A hot bowl of good ramen is great when you are outside at 11-degree celsius running around Ebisu area! It was the perfect season to visit as when we went there, all the lights at Yebisu Garden Place were all over the place! Plus, the strategic location of Honolu Ebisu Ramen that is located near the train station makes you eat while hearing the train passes by. Not only you get to taste one of the best Ramen in Tokyo, but you get to experience it like the Japanese! Another reason for you to visit is cause you can claim a free karaage when you download and share a review on the place inside Halal Navi app!

After feeling full, it’s time to head back to Akihabara for some souvenirs hunting! Make sure to visit Laox Akihabara that located few minutes from the restaurants to grab that Halal souvenirs and snacks.
