One of the biggest problems for Muslim students in Korea, I think, is finding halal food. There are very few places in Daejeon where you can have halal food and most of them being off campus. In this article I will introduce you to some places where you can find halal food.
Close to KAIST, in Gundong street there are several places where you can find halal meal. First of all there are two restaurants: ‘Taj Mahal’ and ‘Alibaba’s Treasure’ which serve halal food.
