Link Roundup #24: Top 3 Chinese Muslim Food Links

Urggh! We totally slacked behind in our monthly link roundups. (and other posts too) Sure, we can come up with a million ways to justify ourselves, but instead of making excuses, let’s just get on with it.

This 36-Year-Old Chinese-Muslim Seafood Restaurant In KL Has Over 20 Must-Try Seafood Dishes

Oh ho! We have not been to Muhibbah Seafood Restaurant in years! Then again, we had only been there twice, or was it three times? Bah, we can’t remember now. It has been that long!

Are we in love with the food?

You bet! The restaurant has an extensive menu, plus the environment is amazing! At least, that was how it was over 10 years ago. We used to go there with friends in big groups. They have a huge space, highly recommended for big gatherings.

Reflections On Observing Ramadan With A Disability

Okay, this link right here does not entirely focus on Chinese Muslim food. We are sharing it because it gives you a glimpse of how Ramadan is observed in Hong Kong from a different perspective—the perspective of someone with congenital myopathy.

The author mentioned about Ammar Mosque and Islamic center in Hong Kong and that flooded our memory gates. Alhamdulillah, we had the opportunity to visit the place and we especially enjoy the canteen with halal Chinese food. The mosque was also packed with a diverse group of people, namely the Chinese, Indonesians, and South Asians.

Uniknya telur abad atau telur padi… Ada yang suka makan hidangan ini?

Untuk pautan terakhir ni kami kongsikan dalam bahasa Melayu. Ikutkan masa kecil dulu tak berapa gemar makan telur abad. Biasa kalau makan pun makan dengan bubur. Tapi memang jaranglah pasal lebih suka makan bubur dengan telur dadar.

Dah dewasa ni pun masih tak biasa makan telur abad. Mungkin pasal jarang makan, jadi nak kata suka atau tak suka tu agak subjektif. Yang pasti, telur dadar masih pilihan hati. Ceh ceh ceh.

That’s it for today’s link roundup! Know any interesting links? Do let us know in the comments section.

Ah Lim Nasi Lemak milik wanita Cina Muslim ini hidang nasi lemak resipi Peranakan ibunya

For the last link, we just had to slot in a Malay post. Pautan ini mengenai Puan Aishah Lim yang telah membuka gerai berasaskan makanan Cina Muslim di Maxwell Food Centre, Singapura. Antara menu menarik di gerainya termasuk nasi lemak dan mi udang yang dipelajari dari ibunya.

Memandangkan kami juga menjual makanan Cina Muslim, tidak dapat dinafikan kami sering rasa teruja bila mendapat tahu ada peniaga lain yang menjalankan perniagaan makanan Cina Muslim juga. Mungkin kerana tidak banyak yang memilih untuk menceburi bidang ini. Semoga Puan Aishah kekal tabah dalam mengusahakan gerai makanannya.

That’s it for this month’s first link-roundup! Let us know if you come across any interesting links and we will include it in our next post.

Link Roundup #22: Top 3 Chinese Muslim Food Links

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!

The Best DC-Area Chinese Restaurants Open on Christmas Day

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”.

Taipei looking forward to Muslim tourists when borders open: official

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.

Bread Garden Unveils Chinese New Year Goodies Collection for CNY 2022

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!

Link Roundup #21: Top 3 Chinese Muslim Food Links

Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! November came and cruised by just like that. Like is it really going to be December next week? And yes, we do know we’re a wee late with this month’s link-roundup. Let’s cut the chatter and just get on with it, shall we?

This Chinese restaurant serves fresh hand-pulled noodles featuring a secret 28-ingredient sauce

We start by sharing a piece of news all the way from Canada! Borders are reopening and people are getting in the mood to travel again. Think it’s pretty legit to share news about Chinese Muslim food businesses in other countries too. Not that we’re planning to travel to Canada anytime sooner. Any sponsors though?

Back to the article. It’s about Omni Palace, a Chinese noodle house specialising in traditional hand-pulled Lanzhou noodle dishes and other halal delicacies. The hand-pulled noodle chefs are fully skilled and have more than 20 years of stretched noodle experience.

Which brings us to a conversation I had with Karim. To make hand-pulled noodles require a certain technique and not everyone can master it. Like they even have schools teaching people how to become hand-pulled noodles masters in China! Sure, we make hand-pulled noodles at home, but compared to these masters, we are total amateurs.

5 Sajian Chinese Food Halal yang Wajib Dicoba saat Main ke Kota Malang

Let’s switch to Malay now. Ikutkan jarang sangat kami tulis dalam Bahasa Melayu. Bukan tak nak, cuma bila tulis tu mesti bunyi skema. Bunyi janggal pun ada. Jangan gelak. Apapun, kali ni kami nak kongsi berita dari Indonesia. Tak dapat pergi restoran Cina Muslim kat Kanada, mungkin boleh pergi cuba makanan Cina Muslim di Indonesia.

Berbalik pada artikel ni. Artikel ni cerita pasal kuotie, siomay, bakmie goreng, cwie mie dan nasi Hainan. Rasanya kat Malaysia pun ada jual cuma mungkin ada perbezaan dari segi rasa. Nama pun ada yang lain, sebagai contoh kalau di Malaysia siomay kami panggil siumai.

Itik panggang ala Melayu

Artikel seterusnya yang kami nak kongsi ialah dari Malaysia dan lebih tepat lagi tentang Itik Bakar Gembo di Shah Alam. Rasanya tak banyak orang Melayu buat itik panggang, jadi bagi sesiapa yang berminat bolehlah cuba beli dari kedai ni. Walaupun Itik Bakar Gembo bukan makanan Cina Muslim, kami kongsi juga kerana agak menarik bila ada orang Melayu yang buat itik panggang.

Oh, dah kongsi tiga pautan dah. Kadang-kadang terfikir juga nak tulis artikel blog mengenai makanan Cina Muslim dalam Bahasa Melayu. Insha’Allah kalau ada masa kami akan usahakan. Kalau ada jumpa mana-mana pautan yang berkaitan, harap boleh kongsi dengan kami supaya kami boleh kongsi dengan pembaca lain.

Link Roundup #19: Top 3 Chinese Muslim Food Links

Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! It’s another round of Chinese Muslim food link roundup! These are some of the news that we took an interest in for the month of September.

Chinese Halal food producers eager to invest in Pakistan

The last part of the article says that; ‘Pakistani and Chinese people share some preferences in terms of food. For example, Sichuan food features spicy flavor, which exactly meets the preference of Pakistani people.’.

For the longest time ever, there is a misconception that Chinese food isn’t spicy. The statement in the article pretty much debunked that.

Culinary skills a boon for hotel exec-turned-chef

Moving closer to home, this is a heartwarming story of how a former hotel exec came up with her very own sweet and savoury homemade halal dumplings business. The dumplings here refer to the 粽子, or commonly known as chang.

We actually did an article of places in Malaysia and Singapore where you can purchase halal chang from. Here’s a quick reference for those interested to make any purchases: Where to Find Halal Chang in Malaysia, Where to Find Halal Chang in Singapore

Couple Sells Halal Kway Chap With Beef Short Ribs From Home

Here’s another feel good story, just that it’s from across the causeway. The owners of Peranakan Kway Chap are Muslims. Despite using beef, instead of pork, they managed to make the halal version of the kway chap that tastes similar to the original Peranakan Chinese dish.

That sums it up! Let us know if you come across any interesting links lately.

Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! It’s that time again for our Chinese Muslim food link roundup! Time passes far too quickly that we actually missed the link roundup for August! Here are some of the links we managed to find lately. Enjoy!

Deeper trade ties with China to mark post-pandemic economic recovery

He also encouraged more Malaysian companies to invest and set up factories in the CMQIP as a window to the vast inland markets in China and suggested that both nations strengthen investment projects in palm oil, rubber, bird’s nest, durian and halal food to further solidify trade relations.

The part about solidifying trade relations through halal food intrigues us. The halal food industry needs no introduction on how huge it is on a global scale. This is certainly something to look forward too.

He lost RM100K after a robbery during MCO, bounced back with a Muslim-friendly bakkwa biz

A combination of Chinese bakkwa and Singaporean dendeng? We’ve tried both the Chinese bakkwa, and Singaporean dendeng from other sellers, but we have never tried a combination of both. So yeah, Dendeng Bakar Cik Midah did pique our curiousity. Guess we need to add this product in our foods-to-try bucket list.

Interested to get your hands on it?

Here are some of their products at their Shopee store:

Dendeng Bak Kwa HALAL (LEMBU) 200g – (Original / Spicy / Honey) Dendeng Singapore Kahwin Bak Kwa by Dendeng Cik Midah and Dendeng Temasek / Dendeng Singapore – NEW PRODUCT Dendeng Bakar 200g (1-3 Orang Makan).

Eid al-Fitr for Muslims in Rural China in 2021|What to eat on Eid|中国云南回族开斋节2021|亲朋好友互相走访会礼游坟

Here’s a sneak peak of Eid being celebrated in rural China. The vlogger, Laotai Arui often posts videos showing the Chinese Muslim life in rural China. In this particular video, she shares the traditions of the Chinese Muslims and a quick mention about the food. She speaks in Mandarin Chinese, but that shouldn’t be a problem as you can always opt for the English subtitles.

Another recent video of hers that we felt is interesting is Lailah al-Qadr of Chinese Muslims Ramadan 2021|Guy Del Ye|Ramadan in China|2021中国穆斯林盖德尔夜|2021中国斋月

Remember to check out her Chinese Muslim food videos!

Chinese Muslims Halal Food Street In China, Ramdan In China, Abdullah In China

You don’t always find recent Chinese Muslims halal food videos on Youtube. Getting the ones from China are even harder! This video is a surprising find for us and it’s nice to see food we’re familiar with. Almost feels like we’re walking along the streets having the time of our life there.

Chinese Muslim Halal Food Street In China, Ramadan In China, MrLeeVlogs

Another surprising find! This time around, this vlogger is showing the Chinese Muslim food found at Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, China. Again, it feels nice to see food we’re familiar with.

Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! It’s time for our Chinese Muslim food link roundup! We noticed that we missed last month’s link roundup. Yikes! Anyway, to make up for it we will do two, yes, two link roundups for July! Here’s the first post. Hope you find the links as interesting as we do!

Banking on food deliveries to stay afloat

Eatery operators in Johor Bahru are depending on delivery service providers to help sustain their operations amid the ongoing dine-in ban during the lockdown.

In case you haven’t heard, Malaysia is still on an ongoing battle with Covid-19. As a result, businesses in general are affected to a certain degree.

For those in the restaurant business, dine-ins are still not allowed. Restaurant operators have to resort to pickups, takeaways, and food delivery companies and platforms, in order to ensure their business can continue running during this trying period. Al-Amin Xinjiang Muslim Restaurant is one of the Chinese Muslim restaurants that have adopted these approaches.

‘Now is the time’: China and Indonesia highlighted as major post-COVID-19 opportunity markets for halal growth

“It’s really a good time for halal food brands in China now – the government has spent a lot of money on building infrastructure like the High Speed Rail and bringing in technology and agricultural methodologies to cities like Xinjiang and Lanzhou which have many Muslim communities,” said Tng.

We knew about halal in China about a decade ago. There was an opening for someone proficient in Mandarin Chinese to work in China to educate the Chinese stakeholders about the Malaysia halal certification process.

Without a doubt, China then was already seen as a potential market for halal growth. Would that finally become a reality? Probably, considering we are seeing more and more halal products coming from China. It’d be interesting to see how things pan out.
