Middle Eastern Countries
The Middle East includes several countries located in both Asia and North Africa. Depending upon which country you are in, the native dishes will vary. Because a significant number of Middle Eastern countries are primarily Muslim, many of their inhabitants follow a halal diet.
What is Halal Food?
The Qu’ran outlines forbidden and permissible food, and the permissible food is known as halal food. Some of the foods and drinks considered haram, or forbidden, are alcohol, pork, animals not properly slaughtered, and land dwelling animals that do not have external ears.
