This version is updated with four places and adds paragraph two confirming halal standards with the restaurants listed below.
For Ryerson students who eat halal, finding appropriate lunch and snack options near campus can be difficult. So to save you some time, we went out and asked students where their favourite halal spots were and what menu item they’d recommend. We even found a place on campus.
During the reporting of this piece The Ryersonian found that there is more that one organization that can certify restaurants as halal. The Ryersonian called all the locations listed and they gave a verbal assurance that they are halal over the phone during the reporting of this piece. Ryerson Eats has halal chicken in the Build Your Own Bowl station at the Hub referred to in one of the quotes, and some other stations according to their website. Always look for the halal sign that they place to make sure the meal is halal.
