I have another halal warning for Hanoi regarding halal meat. My Muslim friends have lived up there for many years now and they always warned Muslims about not buying any halal meat there. They butcher their own meat in the farms outside the city for safety. They still do this. This should be an eye opener for any Muslim visiting Hanoi now.
I do list some restaurants deemed safe for Muslims in Hanoi, but after a conversation with a Muslim friend last weekend, I feel that Muslims need to be more careful now. I have heard that many “halal” restaurants are getting their halal meat from the imam in Hanoi. That is what they are telling Muslim tourists. Unfortunately, the imam has left Hanoi for awhile for Saigon. There is currently no imam in Hanoi according to Muslims in Saigon. Hence there is really no way to ensure the halal-ness of the meat there.
I am still thinking the two restaurants, my listed are safe since they were confirmed halal by Muslims in Hanoi. Unfortunately there are many more “halal” restaurants that are no being monitored by Muslims. As my previous article a couple days suggest, be wary of “Muslim” travel agencies up in Hanoi as well. They only care about the profit....
Hanoi will be able to offer true halal cuisines in the near future. Until then, please be careful. You are safer to eat at vegetarian restaurants that near the pagoda. so here is the Ha la restaurant that you can look and try:

The head restaurant is in Sai gon, this is a branch of Ha la in Ha Noi,
It is believed that one Chinese princess by the name of Hang Li-Po got married to a Sultan of Melaka. Hence, there were more inter-marriages between Chinese immigrants and the local Malays, which produced a unique culture, called "peranakan".
In this culture, the men are called "Baba" and the female are called "Nyonya". Brought up in the cultural "sarong" outfits, also developed a unique food culture.
