City halal eats for Eid al-Fitr

With several days left in Ramadan, the countdown is on to the Muslim festival Eid al-Fitr. It is during this period that many families and community groups observing Ramadan start preparing for Eid al-Fitr.

Eid al-Fitr, translated to Festival of Charity, marks the end of Ramadan, and is celebrated by anyone of Muslim faith around the world. This special time is celebrated with early rising to greet family, prayers, getting ready with new clothes, ensuring zakat ( is paid, and paying respects to family members and friends. Among these practices, are grand celebrations with lots of food shared with family and friends.

While restrictions are gradually lifting in South Australia, Eid al-Fitr may still seem a little different in 2020. In spirit of this festive season, we’ve put together a list of restaurants serving up halal, delicious, and affordable dishes to be shared during this wonderful festival.
