6 Spots for the Best Halal Buffets in Birmingham

Visiting Birmingham is a highlight of every trip to the UK. Birmingham is the heart of England’s West Midlands region. In the 18th century, Birmingham was one of the major centers of the Western Industrial Revolution.

Birmingham is not the manufacturing powerhouse it used to be in the past, but it definitely still stands as a testament to that era. Aside from that, Birmingham is also home to a substantial Muslim population: a quarter of a million, making it relatively easy to get your hands on halal food in the city.

With the upcoming Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games that are held from July 28 to August 8, 2022, it is now the perfect time to visit the UK, and guaranteed your visit would be much more worth it! With all the tiring adventures during your visit to Birmingham and the energy-draining and intense sport-cheering at the Commonwealth Games, what could be much more suitable than some halal buffets?
