Hong Kong Halal Food Haven

Next to the stunning landscapes and fascinating architectural elements, the one thing that brings me back to this island is none other than the ridiculously delicious halal dim sums and stream of local eateries. As an avid reader of, I must thank them for introducing all these source of goodness and in encouraging all Muslims to travel with ease. 

Ma's Restaurant

Over at Ma's Restaurant, the star of the show would definitely be this succulent Beef Goulash. Every mouthful was a pure delight and much to my disappointment, I've yet to find any where else that could top this! I do hope they'll consider venturing out to Singapore.

You will also witness non-stop streaming of local diners who are here for their freshly hand-pulled noodles that brings your noodles experience to a whole new level.

Wai Kee Food Stall

Found in the heart of Cooked Food Centre, this place brims with the locals. I felt a little out of place when I first set foot in the food centre, in search of a fancy halal eatery. But there it is, in a cosy corner of what would be most affectionately called in SG as, a kopitiam. 

Kopitiam pon kopitiam lah!

Everyone here was keen for a taste of their signature dish - the Roasted Duck. This photo may not do enough justice of the moist, tender meat and crispy skin with the right amount of fats (just the way i like it) to give it that kick!

In fact, the meat and gravy are so flavourful it goes well with fragrant rice alone.

Islamic Centre Canteen

I absolutely love this place for the ridiculously delicious dim sums. However on my recent trip early this year, I found a dip in their taste. Perhaps it was just a really busy day and probably shorthanded hence preparation time was compromised? But nonetheless, this is another place I'd still come back to.

The Islamic Centre Canteen is about 15-20 minutes walking distance from the nearest MTR. If you'd like to skip the long walk, go ahead and hop on the Ding Ding Tram! Nearest stop is 47E Tonnochy Road. Besides being the cheapest mode of transportation on the island, it is also the best way to explore Hong Kong, catching a glimpse of everyday street life - something you will miss when commuting on the MTR.

More valuable information of these eateries are available on HHWT's blog.

Mr Kebab

Mr Kebab was a hidden gem, a charming cafe located just 2 minutes away from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR. This is hands down by far THE BEST BIRYANI i've ever tasted. The biryani on it's own, tasted heavenly as the flavours of herbs and spices dances in my mouth. And of course, accompanied by the tender lamb meat, I'm completely sold with this one! I would've ordered a 2nd plate if it was not for the huge portion.

That's all for now while I try to find it in me the motivation to burn off all the calories I've gained from this trip. I'd love to explore more into Hong Kong's food haven, probably on my next trip.

Till the next entry!
