HALAL MEAT - Montego Bay? Staying at Hyatt Zilara

Hello,

I am staying at Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall for my wedding anniversary in July and wondered if the Island itself or the hotel has offerings of Halal Meat - not Kosher. Most Brits will know what Halal is but I think most U.S folk should also.

I don't want ITAL - which I understand is there version of vegetarian, if I have that right?

Just don't fancy living on veg and fish for 2 weeks!

Any tips appreciated?

Thanks.

I recently saw a post about Muslims traveling to Jamaica and it provided info on food and Mosques. I'll search for it and send it to you.

I would contact the hotel directly as well.

Fyi all my local markets carry halal including the chain Stop and Shop.

PEACE!

Thank You.. that would be much appreciated!

I tried doing a Google Search for Stop & Shop but couldn't find any in Montego Bay?

I will try and phone the hotel also!

Any advice on places to visit would be much appreciated..

Thank You

No stop & shop in Mobay :)

Look online at Mega Mart & call. It's a big market.

Are you looking to buy the meat or chicken and bring it to the resort to have them cook it? I thought you were looking to see if the Hyatt Cooks halal meat. Either way check out Mega mart and Supermarket at iron Shores.

PEACE!

no hallal food at the hotel. already contacted them

also make sure to check the cheese which is often non halal as it contains animal rennet or enzymes

so i guess u ll be eating fish for 2 weeks

ofh and what last thing some of their pastries are cooked with alcohol and have pork or beef gelatin so be careful

i think you're outta luck in montego bay.

kingston has a few options, but that doesn't help for your upcoming trip.

stick to fish and vegetarian food.

oh, maybe you can cancel your registration and book into bluefields villas: https:/…

Bluefield Bay Villas- & Hyatt are not nearly in the same price range.

When you rent any Villa most chefs will accommodate allergies and other needs.

I'm sure Kingston is not the only place to get halal meat, it's just people on this travel forum don't know where

Interested if the number provided was any help
