Kaijia: Are We Open For Business?

We’ve been receiving enquiries asking whether we’ve reopened our eatery at UTM, Skudai.

At the moment, our eatery is still closed. However we do intend to reopen in the first quarter of 2022, insha’Allah.

Are you going to sell the same products?

The answer is no as we will be doing a complete revamp of our eatery. We’ve been ramping up efforts to come up with the new concept as well as a new menu for the past few months. In fact, we are still doing it.

New year, new start, new concept, new menu. Just run by the same people and possibly a greater level of awesomeness.

In the meantime, be sure to follow our social pages for updates!

Link Roundup #19: Top 3 Chinese Muslim Food Links

Hello Chinese Muslim food lovers! It’s another round of Chinese Muslim food link roundup! These are some of the news that we took an interest in for the month of September.

Chinese Halal food producers eager to invest in Pakistan

The last part of the article says that; ‘Pakistani and Chinese people share some preferences in terms of food. For example, Sichuan food features spicy flavor, which exactly meets the preference of Pakistani people.’.

For the longest time ever, there is a misconception that Chinese food isn’t spicy. The statement in the article pretty much debunked that.

Culinary skills a boon for hotel exec-turned-chef

Moving closer to home, this is a heartwarming story of how a former hotel exec came up with her very own sweet and savoury homemade halal dumplings business. The dumplings here refer to the 粽子, or commonly known as chang.

We actually did an article of places in Malaysia and Singapore where you can purchase halal chang from. Here’s a quick reference for those interested to make any purchases: Where to Find Halal Chang in Malaysia, Where to Find Halal Chang in Singapore

Couple Sells Halal Kway Chap With Beef Short Ribs From Home

Here’s another feel good story, just that it’s from across the causeway. The owners of Peranakan Kway Chap are Muslims. Despite using beef, instead of pork, they managed to make the halal version of the kway chap that tastes similar to the original Peranakan Chinese dish.

That sums it up! Let us know if you come across any interesting links lately.

Shopping at Mr. Isa Halal (ManSiWei Official Store)

Not too long ago, we stumbled upon Mr Isa Halal (ManSiWei Official Store) on Shopee. He sells all sorts of halal food products from China that we had to try some out.

Before we go to our shopping haul, let’s do a bit of backstory here. It’s been a long time since we ate any Chinese Muslim food that’s manufactured in China. Finding any here in Malaysia isn’t that easy too.

If we think about it again, the last time we ever bought any China manufactured Chinese Muslim food were from a friend of ours who used to run a Chinese Muslim minimart in Klang Valley. Probably three to four years ago.

What did you buy?

1. حلال MANSIWEI HALAL smell-les river snails rice noodle Luosifen 曼私味无臭清真螺蛳粉中国正宗柳州特产酸辣螺丝粉米线320gChina Food


Does the name sound super weird? Yes. Does it taste good? Hands down! What is it actually? Instant noodles. Yes, it’s instant noodles.

Unlike the ones that we are familiar with here, this pack of instant noodles comes with all sorts of condiments to add to the slurping gastronomic experience. The portion is quite big too, making it worth the price. How big is the portion? Well, we were able to share the pack among three people after adding extra noodles.

2. حلال Delicious HaoJinDao Beef/Chicken sausage Halal Snacks AyamSosej好劲道牛肉肠鸡肉肠中国云南特产美食清真食品包装即食肠类


These are sausages. What’s so special about them? The fact that you can eat it like a popsicle. Just tear away the wrapper and bite into it. Not a novelty way of eating, but hey, it’s fun!

They have a few other brands in the store.

3. حلال Spicy strips LaTiao halal Savoury Snacks MaLa Dried Tofu辣条零食小包装中国云南特产沙甸清真食品美食熟食China Yunnan Halal Food


Now how do we explain this. It’s err… dried tofu strips? Or can we say it’s something like the vegetarian soy meat? Either way, it’s a snack. The flavour is a little overpowering for us, and that’s mainly because we haven’t eaten it in a long time. If you’re big on huge flavours and spices, then this would sit well with you.

4. حلال Delicious Q Beef Tendon halal savoury snacks Daging清真Q弹牛筋美召麻辣家常牛肉蹄筋中国云南特色即时零食China Yunnan Halal Food


Again, if you are big on huge flavours and spices, go for this. Does it taste too beefy? Not to us. Furthermore, the texture was surprisingly not as tough and chewable as we thought it would be.

5. حلال Delicious pickles and mustard PaoCai Halal Snacks sayur jeruk美味咸菜中国云南特产泡菜下饭菜小包装藠头酸菜萝卜条鲜姜China


Now this has got to be our best haul. For those who are not familiar with it, 泡菜 is pickled vegetables, or in Malay, you’ll call it sayur jeruk. Does it taste as good as we make it out to be? The thing about pickled vegetables is some people love it, while some may need to develop an acquired taste for it. We? We are absolutely in love with it. We often make our own versions of 泡菜 at home and we eat it with bread, rice, porridge, and just about anything. Yes, that’s how much we love our 泡菜.

Did you only buy 5 items? Thought it was a shopping haul?

We bought more than a dozen items and these were like our best 5 in the list. The store has stocked up on more stuff since we did our first shopping haul. We’re just waiting for the time we’ll get that serious hankering for Chinese Muslim snacks before we make our next purchase.

Let us know if you’ve tried any products sold by Mr. Isa Halal (ManSiWei Official Store)!

Last Minute Mooncakes Shopping, Anyone?

Yesterday, we got a phone call from our aunt asking whether we know anyone who’s selling halal mooncakes. Since the Mooncake Festival is TOMORROW, our friends who are selling handmade halal mooncake have already closed their orders.

Thankfully, we can still buy mooncakes from most of the big brands, making this not much of a big deal.

Then again, it would be a major bummer if you want to buy mooncakes for someone who’s staying further away from you, like in another city or state. Interstate travel is still not allowed and it doesn’t make sense to travel all the way just to deliver a box of mooncakes. Unless it’s for a special someone or occasion.

This is when online shopping comes to the rescue.

Sure, there are many halal mooncakes online sellers out there. Since we’re always on Shopee, we felt it’s only proper to highlight the ones that always appear on our Shopee feeds.

Enough chatter, let’s just get down to business. Chop chop!

Sold More Than 5000 Mooncakes:

  1. 10.7k mooncakes sold – Runcit On Call: [HALAL] Assorted Traditional Tai Thong Mooncake 大同传统月饼 180g
  2. 9.3k mooncakes sold – Hilltown Store: 富山月饼 Foh San Mooncake | Mix & Match | HALAL
  3. 5.4k mooncakes sold – H&H Foodie: Mooncake Kuih Bulan Halal Mooncake Premium Lotus Yolk Redbean Pandan Tiramisu Lava Sesame Custard Matcha Yam Potato

As mentioned in our Top 3 Mooncake Brands We Love In Malaysia post, we love Tai Thong mooncakes. Can’t remember whether we’ve tried Foh San though. At our age, we don’t go crazy over mooncakes anymore. We haven’t even bought any for this year!

Sold More Than 1000 But Less Than 5000 Mooncakes:

  2. 2.6k mooncakes sold – Sugarpastrymy: Halal mooncake Kuih Bulan Halal Malaysia 140g Sugarpastry
  3. 1.5k mooncakes sold: Haoliao: 發發饼家 月饼 12 款口味 Huat Huat Kouping Mooncake (12 Flavors) *HALAL*

We’ll go an extra limb here, we have been bombarded with Sugarpastry‘s mooncake ads on our Instagram account. Were we tempted to buy a box? Millions of times!! Yet we never bought any. Again, it’s not them, it’s us. It’s the age talking and we need to watch our sugar intake.

Sold More Than 500 But Less Than 1000 Mooncakes:

  1. 804 mooncakes sold – Zone Shopper Online: (Wholesale) Halal Mooncake / Kek Bulan Homemade – 50gram (4x4cm)
  2. 727 mooncakes sold – T&G Online: Baker’s Cottage 麦可思 月饼礼盒 自选装配套 清真月饼 HALAL Mooncake Customise Premium Quality Vegetarian Fresh & Natural
  3. 703 mooncakes sold – Pastry by Atira: Halal Mooncake By Atira MINIMUM 4 BIJI (INTI BANYAK)

Yes! Another one of our favourite mooncake brands made it to the list! There’s a Baker’s Cottage outlet that opened in our neighbourhood recently and it’s been milking us dry with their roast chicken rice sets and egg tarts deals. They will not do the same with their mooncakes. Not on our watch!

Sold Less Than 500 Mooncakes:

  1. 212 mooncakes sold – Eaty Mighty: MOONCAKE HALAL / KUIH BULAN HALAL- Mini Size
  2. 104 mooncakes sold – Gezytrading: 『 Ready 』 Penang moon cake 月饼 kek bulan halal kuih bulan halal mooncake Minimum 2 pcs
  3. 55 mooncakes sold – HNF Catering: [HALAL] HNF Catering Homemade Baked Skin Mooncake

Honest confession, we have not tried any of these mooncakes. No reason for you not to try it though!

On a personal note, HNF Catering’s mooncakes nearly got us there with the ‘no preservatives‘ bit. We’re huge on food products made with no preservatives, but since we’re not as crazy over mooncakes anymore, chances are we won’t be making any purchases this year.

There you have it. All you need to do is to order the mooncakes make payment, and he or she will receive it in the mail. Easy, peasy.

Halal Status of Canning Dim Sum Ipoh & Penang

We recently received an enquiry about the halal status of Canning Dim Sum outlets from one of our readers. Naturally, we had to reach out to the restaurants to get further clarifications.

The people at Canning Dim Sum not only ascertained that both of their outlets in Ipoh and Penang are halal certified, they even sent us photos of their halal certifications! Talk about being transparent about their business!

Furthermore, all of their products are from Team Some Sdn Bhd and those products are halal certified too!

Uh huh, okay… so the Canning Dim Sum outlets in Ipoh and Penang are halal certified… what about their other outlets?

At the time of writing, the people at Canning Dum Sum are still in the midst of applying for their other outlets to get the halal certification too.

We reckon it may take a while for them to get it, due to the MCO situation we are still dealing with over here. However, it’s great to know they’ve taken the necessary steps, and it’s only a matter of time until their other outlets get the seal of approval.

Guess you’ll need to follow their social pages for latest updates!

Which brings us to one of our posts, A Guide On How to Find a Halal Restaurant In Malaysia. When in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask about the halal status of the food and establishment.

One way is to ask them directly, like how we did with Canning Dim Sum. Another way is to check with the Halal Hub Department, JAKIM either via their Halal Malaysian Portal, email, or social pages.

Huge thanks to the people at Canning Dim Sum for responding to our enquiry. Stay safe everyone!

Deeper trade ties with China to mark post-pandemic economic recovery

He also encouraged more Malaysian companies to invest and set up factories in the CMQIP as a window to the vast inland markets in China and suggested that both nations strengthen investment projects in palm oil, rubber, bird’s nest, durian and halal food to further solidify trade relations.

The part about solidifying trade relations through halal food intrigues us. The halal food industry needs no introduction on how huge it is on a global scale. This is certainly something to look forward too.

He lost RM100K after a robbery during MCO, bounced back with a Muslim-friendly bakkwa biz

A combination of Chinese bakkwa and Singaporean dendeng? We’ve tried both the Chinese bakkwa, and Singaporean dendeng from other sellers, but we have never tried a combination of both. So yeah, Dendeng Bakar Cik Midah did pique our curiousity. Guess we need to add this product in our foods-to-try bucket list.

Interested to get your hands on it?

Here are some of their products at their Shopee store:

Dendeng Bak Kwa HALAL (LEMBU) 200g – (Original / Spicy / Honey) Dendeng Singapore Kahwin Bak Kwa by Dendeng Cik Midah and Dendeng Temasek / Dendeng Singapore – NEW PRODUCT Dendeng Bakar 200g (1-3 Orang Makan).
