The Arabic word 'halal' means lawful or permitted. It applies not only to food but to daily life as well. Halal food is mostly in context to food that has halal meat and does not contain alcohol. Apart from pork, all meat is considered halal but it has to be slaughtered according to Islamic laws so that it can be consumed by Muslims. It is not difficult finding halal food in Mauritius, located off the coast of Africa, since it has a considerable Muslim population. Several fast food chains serve halal food and there are some restaurants as well.
