The Story of Jiaozi

As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!

饺子 . Jiaozi . Dumplings 

I have always loved eating “Jiaozi“, or dumplings.. Even before I got to know Kai Kai (Alhamdulillah, we are married now), I often find myself ordering a big bowl of it whenever I get the chance to eat at Chinese Muslim restaurants.

However, there had been several occasions whereby I wasn’t able to eat the dumplings simply because the restaurants ran out of it. As a result, I wasn’t able to satisfy my cravings.

I guess it came to the point when I started to Google ways to make my own dumplings. I experimented the different types of filling, learnt how to fold it into various shapes. and tried several cooking methods. From using pre-made dumpling wrappers bought from the supermarket, I eventually graduated to make my own dumpling wrappers.

Fast forward, now that we are in the Chinese Muslim food business, it makes all the more sense to include one of my most favorite food in our menu. Making dumplings take hard work, especially if I make the dumplings shaped like the ones Kai Kai eats at his hometown. So for now, we are only offering the basic shape dumplings – cooked and frozen options. If Allah permits, we can offer other shapes for custom orders.

Have you tried our dumplings yet?

The Story of Niangpi

As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!

酿皮 . Niangpi . Cold Noodles . Mee Sejuk

One of the first items that made it into our menu was “Niangpi“, which we roughly translate as cold noodles. If you were to Google it online, it is often written as “cold rice noodles” or “cold-skin noodles”, and described as “thick and flat noodles” or “noodle-and-tofu cold dish.”

Ironically, the noodles do not contain rice nor tofu.

In Malaysia, most of the time you can only find niangpi at China Chinese Muslim restaurants, and the taste differs from one restaurant to the other. Since there is practically no China Chinese Muslim restaurants in Johor Bahru (well, not that we know of anyway), most of our customers have never seen or heard of niangpi. Most thought the noodles looked like chunky squid strips or a thick version of the local kway teow (rice noodles). And they often think the mianjin (gluten sponge) is tofu, tripe or fish.

Occasionally, our clients would ask how do we make the noodles. To make niangpi requires supernatural amount of patience. as the entire process is time-consuming and complex. We practically have to spend hours washing the flour to get the gluten out, draining out the water, steaming it in batches and manually cutting it into thin strips. On top of that, we have to prepare the dressing, which involves at least 5 different types of condiments, each with its own distinct preparation styles.

One thing is for sure, we certainly have that sense of accomplishment each time we successfully create a fresh new batch. We are usually the first to sample each batch because Kai Kai is extremely particular in achieving the al dente texture.

According to Kai Kai, niangpi is commonly found at his hometown and people eat it throughout the day. Due to its cooling nature, the noodles are also often taken during summer, making it perfect for the weather in Malaysia which is pretty much summer all year long.

So how does a plate of niangpi taste like?

Well, you will have to taste it to find out. 😀

Our Menu!

As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!

As all of you would have known, we specialize in creating Northwestern China Chinese Muslim food items. Most of the recipes and cooking methods were taught by my in-laws when they came by for a visit.

Needless to say, we cooked up quite a storm and had a nerve-wrecking crash course. All the efforts paid off because Alhamdulillah, we can now venture into the food business.

Here is a sneak peak of our menu:

For those who are not too familiar with Northwestern China Chinese Muslim food, you may refer to the following for a brief information on it:

  • “Niangpi” (cold noodles) is best served cold, and you can request for niangpi without mianjin (gluten sponge), with mianjin, or with extra mianjin.
  • “Jiaozi” (dumplings) consist of small pieces of dough wrapped around meat or vegetables fillings.
  • “Youbing” (flat bread) can be eaten on its own, dipped in soups or other types of dipping sauces.

We have other items in the works, so stay tuned for more updates!
