  • 5 Best Halal Food Places Near you in Fiji

    The Republic of Fiji is an island country in the South Pacific which consists of an archipelago that includes more than 300 islands. Its main island is called Viti Levu, where cities like Suva and Nadi are mostly populated. Fiji is dwelled by its native Fijian, followed by about 40% Indians. The Indians are the third and fourth generations descendants from the British colonial period who came as labourers. The Muslims in Fiji is mostly from this Indian origin, approximately 7% of the total Fiji population. Finding Halal food in Fiji is not an issue. As an island nation, the food revolves around ocean bounties where you can feast on seafood when in Fiji. Enjoy an abundance of bananas, coconut, and root vegetables such as taros, yam, and sweet potatoes.
