oday’s roundup is going to feature noodles, prawns and roasted duck. These are our picks for Top 5 Chinese Halal.
” Authentic Halal Chinese Cuisine “
We always get queries for good Halal Chinese food especially delicious dishes like roast duck, dimsum and hand-pulled noodles. There are now quite a lot of Chinese Muslim restaurants around the valley. Here are 5 you should try when you have the hankering for Chinese cuisine.
Restoran Norazlina Chong
What started as a small stall is now a full fledged restaurant that serves you satisfying Chinese cuisine. Some of them are mainland Chinese dishes too like huge lamb kebabs and their very popular crispy and juicy roasted duck. Apparently they learnt the long and tedious roast duck technique from a duck sifu.
Each duck undergoes an elaborate 13 hour process to ensure the skin is crispy, the meat is well seasoned and free of the “duck” smell. Pair it with their Mee Kicap for a hearty meal.

Restoran Haslinda Sim
After the owner converted to Islam, she found it difficult to find Halal Chinese food. Coming from a restaurant family herself, she decided to open a restaurant and serve restaurant quality Chinese food. This year, they added roasted duck to their menu and banquet-worthy dishes like large prawns served in a pumpkin carved chariot and all your favourite Chinese dishes.
Location: No. 48, Jalan Medan Pusat 2C, Section 9, Bandar Baru Bangi
Qing Fang noodle house is a popular chain restaurant from mainland China. The owner visited Malaysia once, fell in love with our country and decided to open a branch here in Malaysia. We have the only Qing Fang restaurant that is outside of China. Qing Fang is popular with their hand-pulled noodles, or la mien as they call it. These noodles are made fresh daily by stretching and twisting dough into strands.
It is said that the long strands of La Mien symbolises longevity and it is very important that when stretching the dough, the strands doesn’t break. Be forewarned though that broths here are Chinese herb-laden so might be an acquired taste for some.

Kedai Makanan Cina Yunus Leong
Wise man says, you’ll find good things at the most unassuming of places. We didn’t expect to run into a small restaurant under a flat in Selayang that offers delicious Chinese food. The shop doesn’t even have a sign board, so since the owner’s name is Yunus Leong, Kedai Makanan Cina Yunus Leong it is. He doesn’t let anyone cook else his dishes, maintaining a consistent taste. His sotong telur masin is outrageously delicious, the batter is golden and crunchy and the texture of the sotong is perfect.
Besides that, he has good kam heong prawns, Nyonya asam fish and butter crabs to name a few. They are all good.
Loation: Jalan Bukit Idaman 8/1, Taman Bukit Idaman, Batu Caves
Chindian Muslim Kiosk
Hidden away in Ampang Jaya is a small stall that sells dim sum, paus and wantan mee. Jasmine started off by selling porridge (her mother’s recipe) and dim sum at Ramadhan Bazaars.
Her regulars from bazaar urged her to open a stall and not long after that Chindian Muslim Kiosk was born. We simply love the porridge here, drizzled with good sesame oil and generous with chicken and wallet-friendly RM3 for a decent sized bowl.
