Halal Food Fest 2013: A Review




Despite living in Toronto for almost all their married life, my parents were always strict about eating halal. Therefore, even as a child, the juicy Big Macs, scrumptious KFC chicken, and oowey goowey good pepperoni pizza that I saw on billboards, television, and school, were forbidden for me. During lunchtime in school, while I saw classmates and friends eating, well, yummy food, I had to settle for jam and butter sandwiches (the odd time I also received qeema sandwiches!). At home, we ate the typical Pakistan dishes… everyday.
