Lovely decor, quiet dining and an extensive menu make Barakat at the Al Meroz a sure winner

THE AL Meroz in Bangkok is Thailand’s first fully halal hotel, with every facility a practising Muslim could need, and of course non-Muslims are welcome too, the latter enjoying the terrific fine-dining restaurant Barakat as much as anyone.

The hotel has a prayer room and separate swimming pools for men and women. All the guestrooms are oriented towards Mecca, and women guests travelling alone can stay on one floor with female staff on duty.

AMSTERDAM — For 60 years, the Sal Meyer deli in Amsterdam has been serving kosher foods like its signature pekelvlees, a fatty corned beef steeped in meat juices and served with a bun.

The deli is one of the few kosher restaurants left in Amsterdam, a city that once had such a vibrant Jewish community that it still retains the nickname Mokum, the Yiddish word for “safe haven.” People travel from miles away to meet their friends there, and the deli holds a small community together in a country where 80 percent of the Jewish population was killed during World War II.
