At Rice, all Chicken is Halal

At Rice, we pride ourselves on having something for everyone, and that means accommodating a variety of dietary needs, wants and tastes. Along those lines, and in response to inquiries from our customers who adhere to a Halal diet, we wanted to take a moment to let you know that our chicken is Halal certified.

What is Halal?

Halal food is guided by accreditation criteria that govern how the meat is produced, sourced, and prepared for consumption. Halal food in Miami may not be easy to find, so we invite you to spread the word that Rice House of Kabob and Rice Mediterranean Kitchen serves only Halal Chicken to those who are looking for food that fits in with their lifestyle. If you and your family eat Halal, you will love our Chicken Joojeh! We offer the Joojeh as a platter, with salad or wrap. the build-your-bowl with Spicy Roasted Chicken or Slow Cooked Chicken Breast. We firmly believe that Rice offers the best Halal chicken in South Florida!


Focus on Greek Food: Greek Salads and Honey Nuta Feta

Rice Mediterranean Kitchen and Rice House of Kabob offer a variety of Greek dishes, from Greek Salad to our sensational Honey Nut Feta dip. Over the years, our chef, Ali Shabani, has traveled to Greece multiple times to gain inspiration from the incredible Greek cuisine. You will find many aspects of Rice that take a page from Chef Ali’s travels and home cooks in Greece. Here are just some of those influences:


    1. Tons of Olive Oil: We cook with olive oil in nearly every dish. We believe there can never be enough of this key ingredient, a staple of the Mediterranean Diet!
    2. Greek Yogurt Sumac: True Greek yogurt is made from Greek milk and consumed plain or with a bit of honey and sometimes walnuts. It is quite delicious! We love Greek yogurt, and we wanted to create something that would resonate with our customers. So, the Greek Yogurt Sumac was born, a combination of our favorite Greek snack and our customers’ favorite sauce.
    3. Honey Nut Feta: Feta cheese is synonymous with Greek cuisine, and adding this to our new menu was a big priority for Chef Ali. Our Honey Nut Feta is a favorite accompaniment for our delicious bowls of grains and greens. Flavor packed and nutritious, it goes with nearly everything on the menu.
    4. Greek Salad: with delicious olives, feta and yogurt and olive oil, just add greens! Create your own Greek Salad bowl or order our Greek Salad as a side dish.
    5. Baklava! We’ve saved the sweetest for last. This traditional Greek Dessert is available at all seven Rice locations throughout Miami.Flaky, delicious pastries soaked in honey-like goodness and bathed in crushed nuts. Don’t forget to try the the pistachio!
