Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! We’re hours away from ushering in the new year and we just realised we haven’t done this month’s link-roundup! Here we go!
Our first news of the day comes all the way from the US! So in the article, they featured Dolan Uyghur – a place that specialises in Uyghur cuisine. Now if you’re unfamiliar with Uyghur cuisine, well to sum it up it’s food that has Middle Eastern and Chinese influence.
To tell you the truth, you can get Uyghur cuisine in Malaysia too. The easiest way is to ask a Chinese Muslim restaurant specialising in Chinese Muslim food from China whether they have any Uyghur cuisine on their menu. Must try dishes include Dapanji – often translated as “Big Plate Chicken”.
About a few years ago, a friend of ours told us that Taiwan was gearing towards bringing more Muslim tourists to Taiwan. We even received pamphlets of where to find halal food in Taiwan as well as the Muslim-friendly places.
If you ask us, we think it’s a good move because when we went to Taiwan, it wasn’t as easy for us to find halal food and prayer spots. In fact, we survived mainly by eating vegetarian food and fruits. Trust us, when you’re travelling the last thing you want to do is to just eat vegetables and fruits.
And we end the link-roundup with news from our neighbouring country – Singapore! Bread Garden is one of the bakeries we go to whenever we’re in the Lion City, so it’s nice to know they came up with halal Chinese New Year goodies for this years’ Chinese New Year celebrations.
Too bad we can’t go to Singapore to taste any of their goodies. The borders are still closed and we’re not sure whether travelling would be allowed again prior to Chinese New Year. Does anybody know how we can get our hands on their Premium Pineapple Tarts, Kueh Bangkit, and Almond Cookies? Like those are the stuff we grew up with and biting into it would just bring us back to our childhood.
There you have it! This month’s link-roundup! Let us know if you come across any cool links!
