Halal Bakery Café Liaison, Mita

Halal Bakery Café Liaison (Mita)***(Dec 2015 update) This baking is no longer Halal certified, although it does still make Muslim friendly foods.

If you are Muslim, have a Muslim friend or just prefer to eat halal foods you must try Halal Bakery Café Liaison. It is right across the street from Keio University, Mita Campus. Cafe Liaison opened in March 2015 and offers about 15 different types of halal bread from white to wheat, as well as Croissants, bagels, and many Japanese specialties such as curry bread. We tried the sliced white, whole wheat roll and butter sale roll. All three were Halal Bakery Café Liaison (Mita)delicious and we will be visiting again. There are very few halal bakeries in Tokyo so this is a jewel of a speciality. Enjoy a cup of tea and some bread in their small but airy bread shop. It is also right down the street from D2 Home Center so make a trip of it.  Halal Bakery Café Liaison

What is halal bread?

Halal bread is bread that meets the Muslim definition of halal. Halal foods are ones that are permissible to eat for members of the Muslim faith. Foods that should be avoided are known asharam, and mashbooh is the term used for foods that contain questionable ingredients.

Products considered halal include all vegetables, milk and eggs from halal animals, and meat, including birds, that has been humanely handled and slaughtered, and have had all of the blood drained from them. Haram foods include alcohol, and any drugs that cause intoxication, blood, pork, and meat from animals that are not slaughtered in accordance with Islamic traditions. Any foods containing haram ingredients are also considered haram.

Mashbooh items contain questionable ingredients, like enzymes, emulsifiers, and flavorings. Unless it can be determined that these products are halal, they should be avoided. Manufactured bread and other processed foods likely contain these ingredients, making it difficult to find halal bread.
