About two weeks ago, my sister brought my dad to this new Chinese Muslim restaurant in KL – Hezhou Restaurant.
Dad ordered Ba Bao Cha (八宝茶) and my sister ordered Chrysanthemum tea.
Now Ba Bao Cha can be loosely translated as “8 Treasures Tea”. It basically means the tea has 8 types of ingredients. There may be slight variations in terms of the ingredients used in other restaurants, but common ingredients include tea leaves, red dates, goji berries, longan, and rock sugar.
Do you know the feeling of traveling to another country, only to have this sudden craving to eat something familiar? Something that tastes like the food from your hometown?
Well, we were on our way to Seremban with my in-laws when we decided to stop by China Muslim Restoran in Seri Kembangan for dinner. Took us a while to find the exact location because we weren’t familiar with the place.
Salam Noodles used to have an outlet in Wangsa Walk and we used to go there quite a bit. That particular outlet was super clean and airy, plus the service was fast. Even my aunt and sister enjoyed their gastronomic experience there.
Few months down the road, we were quite pleased to know they have outlets in Putrajaya and Cyberjaya since we have to go to both places quite often. Having said that, we have only been to their outlets in Cyberjaya.
Some of the things we like about Salam Noodles is they retained their spacious and airy concept. Portions are still good and they even added new items to their menu. The services is still as good and fast as ever.
I recalled that not too long ago there was a cat cafe around this area. Since we’ve never been to a cat cafe, K and I thought we should visit it once just for the experience.
Needless to say, we never found the cafe. Perhaps I remembered the address wrongly. Maybe it has gone out of business. But we did find a China-style Chinese Muslim restaurant. We found Mee Tarik Sulaiman.
We are pumped! But with so many China-style Chinese Muslim restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, narrowing them down to the top 5 is insane!
So what’s our solution? How do we choose? Where do we start? Well, after procrastinating on this blog entry for a good amount of time, we decided to select the top 5 China-style Chinese Muslim restaurants in KL based on the ones we’ve been to. Easy peasy solution, right?
We usually order the noodles there, but occasionally, we’d order the dishes to bring home. Extremely convenient when we need that super quick China-style food fix, but we would rather not slog in the kitchen.
