Basically all food is halal and allowed for Muslims to eat except what is forbidden explicitly in Quran and what is forbidden by prophet Muhammad saying (Ahadith) or practices. Accordingly, the following is forbidden according to Quran and Prophet saying:
Quran says (meaning English translation):
"Forbidden to you are the flesh of dead animals and blood and the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to any other than Allah, and that which has been killed by strangling or by beating or by falling or by being gored, and that which has been (partly) eaten by a wild beast except that which you make lawful by slaughtering (before its death), and that which has been sacrificed to idols...." (Quran, chapter 5, Verse 3)
Prophet Mohamed (peace be on him) states also that:
"forbade the eating of any wild animals with a canine tooth and of any bird with talons."

"Wild animals" denotes those which prey on others and devour them by tearing them apart, e.g., the lion, leopard, wolf, and the like; birds with talons such as the hawk, eagle, falcon, etc., do the same.

It is worthy to mention also that gelatin made from pork is also forbidden.

Intoxicants (eg alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, ...) are also forbidden

Smoking is considered also forbidden as currently assured that smoking is harmful to health and Quran commands us not to harm our health.

All animals mentioned above that are forbidden in Islam are also forbidden in Judaism.

From the above, it is clear that what is forbidden to eat, except in cases of severe hunger, are mainly dead animals, pork, blood, and what is not slaughtered under name of God.

Alcohol and other intoxicants are also forbidden in Islam.
