The Ultimate Halal Bakkwa List

The infamous bakkwa. It has so many names. Some call it dried meat, some call it sliced meat, some even call it barbecued meat. In case you’re not familiar with it, bakkwa is traditionally made of pork, beef or mutton. These days, it has become much easier to find halal bakkwa made of halal beef or chicken in Malaysia.

How does it taste like?

Well, we love the sweet and slightly salty version. Haven’t tried other flavours though. The texture of the bakkwa in our opinion is similar to jerky and it’s nice to eat it as it is or with bread. Sometimes we cut it into smaller pieces and add it to our fried rice.

Wait, you mentioned there’s halal bakkwa in Malaysia?

Yeap! And this is where we move on to the part where we highlight how or where you can find halal bakkwa. We did some digging around and found not one, not two, but five places where you can get your halal bakkwa fix!

Enough chit-chatting. Let’s get started, shall we?

Ikhwan Ng’s Halal Delight

A Chinese Muslim seller who provides authentic Chinese traditional foods which is certified Halal by JAKIM.

This is where we get our bakkwa supply. We bought from Brother Ikhwan once and we just stuck to buying bakkwa from him. Perhaps now that we know there are other sellers out there, we should give them a chance and try their bakkwa too.

Available products: Ikhwan Ng Halal Delight-Ayam Salai/Halal Bakkwa/Dried Meat:Manis Madu ORI 1KG, Ikhwan Ng Halal Delight-Ayam Salai/Halal Bak Kwa/Dried Meat : Manis Madu ORI 500G, Ayam Salai/Halal Bakkwa – Black Pepper 500gm, and Ayam Salai/Halal Bakkwa – Black Pepper 1KG.

LoLiLi’s Delights (HALAL food)

Traditional Chinese Food by the 2 Chinese Muslims; Bakkwa, Bakchang, Lupcheong, etc

A family member tried their bakchang before and said it was pretty legit. Maybe we should try their bakkwa one of these days.

Available products: HALAL Chicken Bakkwa (SLICED MEAT) PRE-ORDER FOR 10 FEB and HALAL CHICKEN Bakkwa (COIN-shaped) PRE-ORDER FOR 10 FEB.

Ikea

Ikea has halal bakkwa? No kidding! Apparently they started having it last year and we were totally clueless about it. If you’re unable to head to Ikea to get a box of their BBQ Chicken Dried Meat, you could probably order via the Shopee link below.

Available products: IKEA BBQ CHICKEN Dried Meet (HALAL Bak Kwa) {READY STOCK}

Dendeng Cik Midah

Oh hey, dendeng! We never really thought that dendeng is similar to bakkwa, but that’s probably because the dendeng that our family makes looks and tastes nothing like bakkwa.

We’ve never tried Dendeng Cik Midah, so do let us know if it’s remotely similar.

Available products: 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).

Random Seller

And we found another halal bakkwa seller on Shopee. We’re pretty curious about it because the packaging looks amazing. Let us know if you’ve tried this too.

Available products: Halal Homemade Bak Kwa (daging salai)

That sums up our post for today. Have you bought your Chinese New Year gifts for family and friends yet? Well, you could consider giving them a pack of halal bakkwa. Trust us, they’ll love you for it.
