And we’re back at Al-Amin Xinjiang Muslim Restaurant!
The restaurant has become like a second home to us because the food is so good and they serve authentic Xinjiang food.
Plus we love the owners. They’re Chinese Muslims from China and have stayed in Malaysia for more than 10 years. Their persistence to continue running their Chinese Muslim food business in Malaysia is a huge inspiration to us and we admire them for their support and encouragement in all of our endeavours.
We are huge fans of their Xinjiang dapanji 新疆大盘鸡, Xinjiang kaobao 新疆烤包 and hawthorn herbal tea 山楂凉茶.
Location: No.20 Jalan 19/3, Seksyen 19, 46400, Petaling Jaya
K’s friend, Brother Bao, is the owner and chef of Al-Amin Xinjiang Muslim Restaurant. He specializes in Xinjiang-style cuisine, so unlike regular Chinese Muslim restaurants, Brother Bao churns out the most amazing dishes, with Middle Eastern and Chinese influences.
Brother Bao’s restaurant has over 30 types of Chinese Muslim dishes and beverages.
Here are our top 3 favourites:
1. Xinjiang Kao Bao
We love the ones sold by Brother Bao. His are generously filled with mutton and onions.
2. Da Pan Ji
Also known as Big Plate Chicken, this bite-sized chicken dish is cooked with a variety of vegetables. Order a side of rice, noodles or bread to go along with it
Once upon a time, we sold these at Kaijia too. These days, we would just order this to share.
