Word has it that China will be opening its’ borders by end of this year. For Muslims planning to travel there, finding halal Chinese food in China could be tough especially when you do not speak the language.
The 美团 Meituan App
Here’s where the 美团 Meituan App comes to the rescue. With their tagline, ‘We help people eat better, live better”, they certainly help make it easier for us Muslims to find halal Chinese food. All you need to do is download the app.
Is it that easy?
We hate to break it to you, but yes, it can be that easy. Sure, the app is in Chinese and this could be a major problem especially when you don’t know any Chinese characters. However, at this age online translations are a click away. Furthermore, the restaurants post photos of the dishes, so you could make a rough guess.
How to download the 美团 Meituan App?
- Find the 美团 Meituan App on your app store.
- Search for ‘清真’. 清真 means halal.
- The app will show the nearest restaurants selling halal food.
Can’t be bothered to go to the restaurant?
