Eating out is a passion of mine, but it’s an expensive one and I’m always on the lookout for a meal deal or special offer. When it comes to deals then my trusty Tastecard that I’ve had for years comes into action.

Not only have I save 100’s of pounds over the years I have also discovered and eaten some great food! The tastecard basically gives you massive discounts off your final food bill.

How does it work?

There are loads of places to choose from and each restaurant has a different offer, some give 2 for 1 for 2 people, meaning if you get a total of 2 starters, mains and desserts you only pay for 1 and some give a sweet 50% off the whole food bill for between 2 to 10 people. Any day apart from Friday and Saturday.  

My savings!

You get the card, search for a place you want to go to, check the rules, normally you have to call and book but some places you don’t need to like Pizza Express or Banana tree, show your card when you ask for the bill, then sit there with a smug look on your face as you count the money you saved!

So I have decided to make a list of some great restaurants that offer halal food and also are on tastecard.


Because I use this card so much, the people over at tastecard are offering readers a special offer.

It's safe to say that I know my burgers. Having been to over 25 places in London and eaten over 70 burgers in just 2 years I know what's good. . @builtburgersilford invited me to head down to Ilford (yes in East London) I rolled my eyes and thought "great another burger place". So i wasn't expecting to be impressed, but spoiler alert I was wrong. . The burgers here are good. Very good . When you walk in, it really has a Dubai feeling with the style and look, the concept is like subway, you pick you protein and bun and pick the toppings. . Anyways. I made my own burger, there's chance you can go crazy with toppings and pick things that don't work. So i kept it simple with ingredients that worked together, onions, fried onions, lettuce, tomatoe and American cheese. The flavour of the meat was just perfect. That taste of rendered and melted fat from a 80/20 mix that's grinded on site, Just how I like it. It only cost £5.99. I can write more but just go. I can safely say that this will become one of my favourite places now. If you like Burgista, Burgeri, brioche, proper burgers or fat burger you will like this.

148-150 Bethnal Green Road, Bethnal Green, London, E2 6DG


Hankies Cafe

Amazing that one of my favourites places to eat gives you 50% all food. I’ve been 10 times here, including one time when I just went in for a single lamb chop and shamelessly used my tastecard.

2 for 1

67 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 6EX


Banana Tree

Another one of my favourites, serving up amazing South Asian food with 4 locations over London. I once went in and got 2 for 1 on a chocolate fondant, a brilliant dessert. The great thing is you can just walk in and use the card without needing to book ahead. Banana Tree now offers halal in ALL locations.
