Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! It’s time for our Chinese Muslim food link roundup! Hope you find the links as interesting as we do!
SELANGOR’S first Chinese Muslim mosque with a three-storey pagoda that will serve as the minaret, is to be built in Klang.
The mosque, which will have elaborate Chinese architectural features, is inspired by the Great Mosque of Xi’an in China.
Xian is the capital of Shaanxi province.
The mosque will boast ornate carvings and will use less bricks in its construction as more wood is preferred for the walls, pillars and beams in its surrounding complex.
Nothing to do with Chinese Muslim food, though we are hoping there’s the possibility that Chinese Muslim food businesses would be given the opportunity to run their business near to this Chinese Muslim mosque. The reason is that usually whenever we go overseas, the easiest way to find halal food is to find the nearest mosque.
Since the mosque is fundamentally based on Chinese Muslim architecture and culture, we reckon it’s a good idea to have a handful of Chinese Muslim located within the vicinity. Muslims from other races and even visitors from other religions could probably learn a little more about the Chinese Muslim culture, and we know how food can be a great ice-breaker .
The best stall, in our opinion, is an unassuming unit named Kampong House Mini Wok, which serves halal-certified zi char at very wallet-friendly prices.It has rice sets like Salted Egg Chicken ($5.50), Assam Batang Fish ($5.50) and Black Pepper Beef ($6.50) as well as San Lor Hor Fun ($5) and Seafood Fried Rice ($5.50). You can also get sides like Prawn Omelette ($6) and Petai with Sotong ($12).
It has probably been about 2 years since we went to Singapore. One thing’s for sure, the Chinese Muslim food business scene there is booming! We have a couple of friends who are running their own China-style Chinese Muslim food businesses there and they’re doing quite well.

Having said that, it has been far too long since we had any halal zi char. Once we’re able to travel again, we’d love to visit Kampong House Mini Wok and try out their food.
