Futher explanations

“Halal” indicates restaurants and coffee houses with halal food only. If no alcoholic beverage is served, the entire place is certified as halal. If not, all food menus are certified as halal, and alcoholic beverages are strictly separated.
“Muslim Friendly” restaurants provide halal menus with halal logos. In their ordinary menus, non-halal chicken and beef, and alcoholic flavoring may be used.
“Muslim Welcome” means no pork or pork-related items and no alcoholic flavoring are used in the entire place. However, this category doesn’t offer separate halal menus.
“Pork-Free” means no pork and no meat. There are no pork and pork-related items, nor is any meat served. Alcoholic flavoring might be used.
