[MY] Hezhou Restaurant

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.

As for my sister’s Chrysanthemum tea, hers was infused with goji berries. A nice touch for that slight natural sweetness.

Family Dinner At China Muslim Restoran

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.

Too hungry to snap other pages.

We entered the restaurant, found a nice place to sit, and within minutes the waitress came to take our order. My in-laws were ecstatic to see the menu. The restaurant had so many dishes to choose from! We ended up ordering 5 types of noodles dishes for us to share among ourselves.

One can never have too many noodles.

Perhaps it’s just me, but I felt the portion was huge! My in-laws and K pretty much cleared their plates. Me, on the other hand, had leftovers.

Stuffed and satisfied, we left the restaurant and continued our journey to Seremban.

Makan-Makan At Salam Noodles

For some weird reason I kept a copy of their flyer

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.

If you’re a fan of their dumplings, chili oil, or babao cha, then you should rejoice because they sell packed versions of those items at their outlets.

Did we mention they have a surau? Not sure about the other outlets but the one at Persiaran Flora does! And they offer bottomless drinks! If you’re always on the go and need something quick, then Salam Noodles is the perfect place for you.

Random Visit To Mee Tarik Sulaiman

IMG_20180925_182038.jpg
Bread & noodles. Yum!

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.

Although their menu options were quite limited, they did offer a few interesting food items. For example, you can hardly find the bread that we ordered at other Chinese Muslim restaurants. Besides the bread, ordering mi tarik was a must. We spent a good one hour there before calling it a day.

Since that very first visit, it’s been a while since we went back to the restaurant. Hopefully it’s still there because we really enjoyed their food. I particularly love their decorations as it reminded me of the small restaurants I went to in China.

Our Top 5 China-Style Chinese Muslim Restaurants In Kuala Lumpur

IMG_20141105_194308.jpg
Hello KL foodies!

Our very first listicle! Woohoo!

We are pumped! 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?

Our top picks in no particular order:

1. Amber Chinese Muslim Restaurant

What we love: The ambiance, the furnishings, the cutlery, and the huge selection of food items on the menu.

What we hope they can improve on: The price? Kidding! Sure, it’s on the high side, but the price suits the portion size, location, and just about everything we’d mentioned earlier. Can’t be dining there often though.

2. Lamb Shepherd Chinese Muslim Cuisine

What we love: The people, the service, the taste of their food, the surau, and yes, we can continue raving about them.

What we hope they can improve on: Can’t think of anything at the moment. Just that parking can be chaotic at times, though we don’t think they can do anything about that. You just need to avoid going there during working/rush hours.

4. Mi Tarik Jin Cheng

What we love: The taste of their food and their menu.

What we hope they can improve on: We’ve only been there 3 times so we can’t pinpoint anything that we think they should improve on. Looks like we have a valid excuse to go there again next year.

5. Qing Fang Noodle House

What we love: It’s near to where we stay in KL. Plus we have a nice memory of the place.

What we hope they can improve on: The taste of their food items. Maybe it’s just us, but at our last visit, we felt it has changed over the years. Or it could be that our taste buds alter as we age.

Satisfying Cravings At Qing Fang Noodle House

The one and only photo out of the many gastronomic trips

Besides Al-Amin Xinjiang Muslim Restaurant, Qing Fang Noodle House is another one of our most frequented restaurants.

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.

Price-wise, the restaurant has increased it over the years, but it’s still alright. The cleanliness and ambiance is excellent. As for service, the staff are prompt with our orders. Then again, we usually go there during non-peak hours, so that could contribute to the promptness.

Other plus points for Qing Fang Noodle House include they have a surau and they offer a good selection of food items on their menu.

Whether you are looking for noodles, rice dishes, soups, or specialty drinks, they have got you covered.

Having Our Noodles Fix At Mee Hiris China Muslim

We were in Seremban so we decided to consult Google for the nearest Chinese Muslim restaurant. To tell you the truth, we didn’t think there’d be any. Google proved us wrong because Mee Hiris China Muslim was just 15 minutes away from us! Without a moment’s hesitation, we made our way there.

If you’re using Google Maps, you may face some difficulties in finding the restaurant’s exact location. Fret not, as long as you’ve reached Giant Senawang, finding Mee Hiris China Muslim will be easier. Just drive behind Giant Senawang and you will soon spot the restaurant’s huge green-coloured signage.

Another Visit To Lamb Shepherd Chinese Muslim Cuisine

Out of the many China-style Chinese Muslim restaurants we’ve been too, Lamb Shepherd Chinese Muslim Cuisine remains to be one of our favourites.

Run and owned by Chinese Muslims from China, the restaurant has been in operation for years and the food quality has always been consistently wonderful. Price-wise, it’s affordable and portions are good. Getting here is fairly easy as it’s within 15 to 20 mins walking distance from Wangsa Maju LRT station. There is also ample parking, except it might be a little difficult during working hours.

K’s order

Another feel good factor about Lamb Shepherd Chinese Muslim Cuisine is they have a surau. Highly convenient for those who haven’t performed their prayers.

My order

K and I usually order the noodles when we’re there. To be honest, we don’t have a favourite dish because Alhamdulillah, just about everything tastes good.

Our Experience At Mee Tarik Warisan Asli

IMG_20160823_165511 (1)
I no longer do my best to take decent photos

The first time I ate at Mee Tarik Warisan Asli was more than 5 years ago at their Medan Niaga Tasik Damai, Sungai Besi outlet. The menu was pretty simple then. I used to go there two to three times a week because it was within walking distance from my office, plus the taste of the mee tarik reminded me of my trip to China.

Ever since then, I’ve eaten at several of their other outlets. Needless to say, I’ve also seen the changes in their menu and restaurant concept. Maybe it’s just me, but I prefer their 5 years ago menu at Medan Niaga Tasik Damai, Sungai Besi outlet. And the price too.Read More »
