A Muslim Beef Cow

On my last visit to London and a Thai restaurant, the following could be found on the menu:

The first thing that came to mind was,"ok, this must be the only Halal meat option on the menu." One of my friends (MAD) wanted to go for it but was told by another friend (HM) to ask if it was Halal* first.

MAD: Excuse me, the Muslim Beef Curry, it's halal isn't it?
Waiter: No it's not, we are not a Lebanese restaurant you know, there is no belly dancing here hehehehe.
MAD: So you mean it is not halal? But why do you call it Muslim Beef?

Yes indeed, why?

My only conclusion is that the Beef cow converted to Islam while meeting a beautiful Mooooslim cow on a trip to southern Thailand where many Muslims live.

I feel strongly that any Muslim restaurant should have both Christian and Jewish Beef Curry. The latter should naturally not be Kosher because that would defeat the point. And the point here being of no point at all.

Ps. And what in the world has Lebanon and belly dancing got to do with halal meat?

*Halal meaning salughtered according to Islamic requirements, similar to that of Jewish Kosher

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

lol I think you are girl! :)

Well I did not have the Muslim Beef... after all there were no belly dancers there so I couldn't possibly have it... (stupid waiter)

Instead I had the Chilli prawn fried rice :)

Take care!
