So you read our blog and went through our Chinese Muslim food businesses directory. While some of us would make every attempt to travel just for food, a handful of us would rather save ourselves the trouble of travelling so much, preferring to have the food delivered to us.
But why do some people choose to have food delivered to them? Well, it can be any or a combination of the following reasons.
Then one day, a friend of ours came to JB. She was staying at The Puteri Pan Pacific hotel and invited us to have halal dim sum with her.
One thing is for sure, there is nothing dim, about Kai Xuan Halal Chinese Restaurant dim sum. The restaurant has a wide variety of halal dim sum and we were quite clueless on what to order. Everything sounds so good! Plus the fact that it is not easy to get halal dim sum in JB, we were more than eager to try a few types.
Their dim sum did not disappoint us. Everything taste good and the service was quite fast too. We probably spent an hour there, feeling stuffed and satisfied.
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.
Landed safely in Hong Kong and took the public transport to reach my crib at Causeway Bay. The great thing about Hong Kong was that it was fairly easy to get around and I didn’t even have to ask for directions.
Soon enough I was greeted by the sweet succulent smell of insatiable food. Halal Chinese food. And I was smitten by it. Totally smitten that I couldn’t even care to edit this only photo of the food which my friend ordered. Before I knew it, I had gobbled down everything.
Muslims traveling to Hong Kong should definitely come by here for halal Chinese food.
