your Imaan and eating are linked

Assalamu Alaykum,

I have a request, if your website could post this concern that would be great. There is a restaurant in Salt Lake called Cafe Rio that is popular among many Muslims. Their tortilla, used in most of the dishes (especially the salad) contains lard (pig fat). I just found out and I thought this would be the best way to get the message out.
JazakAllah Khair!

  1. Lard (pig fat) is a traditional ingredient in Mexican cuisine. In Spanish, it’s called manteca. Many restaurants and most taco carts that feature “Traditional” Mexican food use it in their preparation. Ask about it before you order.

  2. One of the many reasons I don’t eat out…besides, homemade food has more Barakah (blessing)
