Weekend Halal Lunch Sets

We visited Issho for lunch. For your information, Issho is only open for lunch on weekends, while they are open for dinner on weekdays.

The menu features a variety of halal lunch sets, including tender and soft charcoal-grilled beef, crispy tempura, and flavorful motsunabe. Each set comes with salad and rice, with the motsunabe set offering a choice between white rice or noodles.

Plus, there’s good news: free rice refills are available during lunchtime!

For those seeking a spicier twist on Kyushu soul food, Meat Miso Hakata Motsuyaki is the perfect choice. Served on a hot plate, this dish features a generous portion of stir-fried vegetables and chewy halal motsu (intestines) coated in a rich, homemade miso paste sauce. Enhance your dining experience with Issho by savoring this flavorful creation.

The presence of chili powder and halal soy sauce on every table ensures that you can customize your meal to your taste.

Kid-Friendly Options

If you’re dining with children and unsure of what they might enjoy, we recommend chicken ramen, corn tempura, and karaage!

The chicken ramen has a mild taste that’s not too rich, perfect for children. The soft and slurpy noodles are easy for kids to eat. Corn tempura highlights the natural sweetness of the corn with a crispy texture that kids will love. Lastly, the karaage (fried chicken) offers a crunchy outside and juicy inside, making it a hit with everyone.
