Halal Food Fest showcases diverse, exotic taste of halal food
Alvaro Carol is a halal food newbie.
He knew almost nothing about the rules of halal meat — meat slaughtered in accordance with Islamic guidelines — when he opened his Peruvian rotisserie chicken restaurant, Los Chicos-Brasa, in Markham in January. Serving halal wasn't a religious decision for Carol, a lawyer by day and the nouveau restaurateur by night, but more of a business one.
"You could call it a business decision, because we are trying to cater to everyone and not any one community," he said of his restaurant situated near Markham Rd. and 14th Ave, near to where a significant Muslim population lives. "I recently learned about halal, and decided to give it a try," said Carol, who imports spices from Peru for chicken slow-cooked over charcoal.
