Muslim traveler in Perth

November 21, 2010

For previous entry, please go here.

Thing that always been a major concern to muslim traveler is about finding the halal food in a non-muslim country. But it never been a big issue to me since I always opt for alternative like fish fillet, chips/french fries, pasta, fruits and veggies. I don't really cook heavy meal and eat meat/chicken while travelling coz I find it difficult and time consuming (cutting meat/chicken and prepare BIG meals does take a lot of time, do you agree?). So I just cook something simple and easy, and since I always on the move, I find it hassle to store the meat/chicken coz it rot easily. So that's my reason.

If you travel with family it's better to cook rather than burn a hole in your pocket coz a piece of halal kebab will cost you about AUD7-8. If there's like 6 people traveling together and you eat like 3x a day, just image how much you going to spend! However, it's not hard to find halal meat and chicken here coz there's muslim community in Perth. You can look for halal butcher around Perth here and here. Don't scratch your head to locate the shop, just pin the address on your GPS to reach it. Travel smart!

If you plan to buy sauce for pasta or whatever, please go through the ingredient and usually, if the product is halal, an AFIC logo is certified there, much like HALAL logo that we have here in Malaysia. AFIC stands for Australian Federation of Islamic Council.

If you like to spend and lazy to cook, you can choose to eat outside as there's few places selling halal foods around Perth such as Ispa Kebab in Harbour Town Shopping Mall and others, just go here for a full list.

Besides that, if you fancy paying visit to the mosque in Perth and surround, you can check the list of mosque here and prayer time here. I've also blogged about finding the kiblat direction while traveling and you can read about it here.
