Halal at London’s newly launched Boxpark Wembley

After discovering eight Halal options in Boxpark Croydon and three in Boxpark Shoreditch last year (see here), you can imagine our excitement leading towards the launch of Boxpark Wembley this past weekend.

As Boxpark’s biggest location, with a massive 20,000 square foot events space catering for up to 2,000 visitors, there’s a diverse range of food and drink vendors – 27 in total to be exact.

According to their website, 15 have signed up thus far, of which nine we can confirm are Halal or Halal-friendly, with two we’ve already had the pleasure of reviewing.

While this page will be updated with any new vendors offering Halal options, here’s a list of the eight that do:

MITSURYU - UNIT 23

Mitsuryu is unique in that it happens to be, to our knowledge, the first authentic Japanese restaurant in London, and perhaps even the UK, to offer a fully Halal food menu.

Having recently reviewed their establishment in London’s iconic Chinatown (grab your exclusive 10% discount here for said branch), we can confirm that their food is fantastic, with dishes shortlisted for our End of Year Awards [Ed. NB. – This restaurant has now closed down].

This time, Mitsuryu’s head chef, Kenny, is bringing diners his experience of authentic Japanese cuisine, which he’s honed for over 20 years, and the exciting flavours of high quality handmade sushi, but without having to pay those high end prices.

Having tried them ourselves, we can attest to how good they are, with fresh produce and plenty of mouth-watering variety. Don’t think; just go visit, and thank us later for encouraging you!

SMOKY BOYS - UNIT 20

Smoky Boys are a familiar Halal burger franchise whose Hounslow branch we also recently reviewed (grab your exclusive 20% discount here for said branch), and which impressed, with quality burgers and impressive shakes.

You can now enjoy their high quality burgers and barbecue in Wembley (unit 20). Be sure to look out for their “bites” as Grilled Haloumi Skewers, a host of signature burgers including the Haus Burger, Smoky Chick and Falafel and Cheese, their Grilled Chicken Wings, and their home-made Beef Dogs.

Located at unit 14, Cut + Grind is an award-winning burger company whose patties are ground freshly inhouse and twice a day.

Having won the National Burger Awards for their Juicy Classic (here’s an exclusive interview with head chef Abdussamed), manager Christina has informed us that the chicken is fully Halal. In addition, Cut + Grind have the option of Halal beef burgers too, which are cooked in a pan, as opposed to being grilled directly, so as to avoid any cross-contamination. She’s also said that while they’re currently determining whether the beef fat, in which the regular fries are cooked, is Halal, there’s sweet potatoe fries as an alternative.

Following a series of pop-ups, kitchen takeovers, and after opening their first permanent location in 2017, they now bring that passion to Wembley. Located at unit 16, the founders have confirmed: “All our chicken is Halal – wings, nuggets or a burger – it’s all covered. And we only sell chicken so there’s no other meats.”

Located at unit 10, Hola Guacamole owner, Margarita, has informed us that all chicken is Halal. And given that the beef (she’s currently working towards securing a Halal supplier) and pork are pulled, there isn’t any issues with cross-contamination when it comes to the prep work and cooking of said chicken.

Having only recently launched fine dining establishment Kutir, Michelin-starred Chef Rohit Ghai and Abhishake Sangwan (of Gymkhana, Hoppers, Bombay Bustle and Jamavar fame) go casual with Koolcha.

The good news is that the food menu here is fully Halal, and is inspired by the chef’s family recipes as a child, serving traditional North Indian ‘Kulcha’ flatbreads stuffed with unique flavours.

We can confirm that not only is all meat Halal, but that only one item, namely the Jackie Boozy Barbecue, contains alcohol.

NANNY BILLS - UNIT 6

Nanny Bill’s is another burger unit that offers signature croquettes that caused quite a stir when first introduced. They offer hand-pressed cheeseburgers, as well as buttermilk fried chicken, with all sauces and relishes made inhouse.

Located at unit 6, Nanny Bill’s owner Darren has confirmed that all chicken is Halal. And while they’re going to be going fully Halal with their beef too, currently, although his suppliers are usually Halal, non-Halal is used on occasions. Hence, be sure to inquire beforehand.

While bacon is used in some burgers, Darren has assured us that this is prepped and cooked at a separate location ahead of time in order to avoid cross-contamination.
