Halal Restaurants in Northwestern Syria

The people of Aleppo are famed for their love of food and visitors will find a great variety of excellent Syrian dishes for a very reasonable price.

One dish which is particular to Aleppo is muhammara, a delicious, tangy, spicy red paste of olives and roasted peppers which is eaten warm with warm flatbread.

For excellent fresh, flame-cooked lamb kebabs, try the Halal kebab cart near the clocktower.

Alcohol is available only in the Christian quarter of the city where you will find beers and wines (mainly from Lebanon) and imported spirits. The drinking culture in the Christian Quarter tends to be quite mediterranean, with drinkers sharing a bottle of wine at a table with or after food.

There is an excellent fresh juice stall near the clock tower
