So Mac Donald serves only Halal mutton (sheep and goat meat), Halal chicken (meat of the hen meat) and Halal beef (Buffalo ox or cow meat) burgers in middle East.
An interesting side light - I had worked in Ethiopia and I had many Ethiopian Christian and Muslim friends. Giving a party was a nerve wracking experience. The Muslims would not eat the Haram meat (the non Halal meat) and the Christians would not eat the Halal meat. So two different sets of meat dishes had to be prepared and I had to be extra careful that even the utensils had to be separated. This made life so difficult to my wife (who was avegetarian) that she came out with a dikhat (rule).
My wife served only vegetarian menu to my Ethiopian friends and colleagues. Even though vegetarian food is labeled fasting food (Ethiopian Christians while fasting eat vegetarian food) my friends enjoyed the food and appreciated the variety of vegetarian cuisine that my wife could dish out in no time at all.
