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.
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.
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.
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. Continue reading “[MY] Mee Tarik Warisan Asli”→
