Disneyland gets an Islamic flavor

Friday, November 09, 2012

Hong Kong Disneyland has introduced halal food to woo Muslims as looming competition could draw away mainlanders to Shanghai.

About 40 percent of the theme park's visitors are mainlanders, but a rival Disneyland is scheduled to open in Shanghai in 2015.

The restaurant, Tahitian Terrace, is situated in Adventureland. Its menu ranges from South Asian specialities such as halal dishes and Indian vegetarian to Penang fish curry, and roasted lemongrass chicken steak.

All food is certified by the Incorporated Trustees of the Islamic Community Fund of Hong Kong, according to a source.

Before the halal switch in March, Muslims had to place their orders before they arrived in the park, causing a lot of inconvenience.
