If you consider all the veggie restaurants halal, then there are lots of them in Ipoh. What are the requirements for Chinese restaurants to be halal anyway? Is it just pork-free or there are other requirements to be complied with? Are those seafood restaurants like the one you went to in K Sepatang halal?
Aren't the hotel restaurants halal as well? Palace in Excelsior and Tai Tong in Heritage?

there r 2 curry chicken breads now w abt the same name:

the real Mccoy is "Yau Kee"
the "fake" one "Sun Yau Kee" which has a kiosk at Jusco

Never tried the "Sun Yau Kee" cos i din find the real Mccoy that good either. A lot of hype for the packaging - that's abt it. I'd rather go somewhere else for a proper curry chicken

Kris, my apology.. maybe i put it wrongly..try this... its a general perception among typical malay that to be on the safe side, the cook must be muslim. as it is, i dont want to bring them to a place where they're not comfortable with, cant really blame them becos they grew up with that perception.

i am starting this thread with my own mother and also makcik/pakcik in mind, whom i love to take out for dinner and try out dishes. as much as i loath to admit, the perception (or mis-perception??) is high among typical malay that we cannot go eat in chinese restaurant for fear of non-halal food. like i said, for me only in ipoh i get my first exposure in halal chinese cooking.

hmm passed by yum yum restaurant few times, maybe next time i pass by i might step into it n try it out..

No problem Nur, I know there are Muslims who shy away from all the Chinese makan places cos they don't want to take chances. The utensils, crockery or cultery could be used to handle non-halal food,which is not acceptable to them. On the other hand, there are also Muslims who like to take 'char siew pau'. Macam macam pun ada.

Siew pau is any sort of baked buns and char siew pau is generally referred to grilled pork buns.

I have in my time worked in French Restaurants. Most of their main sauces require alcohol, mainly red wine in their jus for brown meat sauces, white wine or pernod in their fish and fish/seafood sauces, brandy in their Lobster Americaine' and sometimes in their Thermidor sauces. Desserts and pastry also feature alcohol based flavourings, and fruits in desserts are laced with spirits. Commercial puff pastry a nd shortcrust pastry use lard in it's compositions, and the meat are mainly not halal butchered. Couldn't expect much Muslim clientale then, eh?
I have also worked with quite a number of North African Muslims, who tend to shy away from eating at these establishments, and resigned to cooking at home the Berchamel and Mornay ( flour, milk and cheese ) sauces with their baked vegetables, and grill their halal bought meat. Sauces are mainly tomato and vegetable based derivatives, cream or otherwise. Grilled fish is common, with lemon. And they eat their food with lashings of harissa (chilli paste) or tobasco sauce ! Not to forget the favourite french barguette bread, and couscous.
Think Western food would have to be modern in their approach to come up with a menu using only halal ingredients. My 2 penny's worth....
