What are Muslim dietary restrictions? Some Muslim follow dietary codes which forbid the eating of pork and the use of intoxicating drinks. Meat from animals slaughtered by devout Muslims following appropriate procedures is acceptable, and is called halal meat. As such, there are certain stores in the Triad, which sell halal meat. Do not purchase or encourage Muslim newcomers to purchase meat that is not clearly marked as halal unless they have indicated that they do not follow these practices. Following are stores which carry halal meat.
