Cool Halal Chinese Food

i realised that in Ipoh, there is only 1 halal chinese food available - Laksamana Cheng Ho. the food are great. but after awhile, the taste bud becomes too used to it, and craving for other chinese fare.

Anyone thinking of opening an authentic halal chinese restaurant sans pork n alcohol??

That's Yau Kee Curry Chicken Bread, originally from Kampar. There are 2 other branches, lst one at the corner of Jln Pasir Puteh/Leong Boon Swee Rd, another one on Jln Seenivasagam opposite Overseas Restaurant and near Excelsior.

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?

Kris, I think it also can't serve alcohol.

Nur? Just a question and pardon my ignorance. Is it OK to eat at a place that doesn't serve pork but serves alcohol? As long as you don't drink alcohol should be alright isn't it? Maybe we can bring our own drinks there so we won't even be using glasses that might have held alcohol.

alcohol as part of the recipes cannot. but as for drinking, for me i have no problem. but i dun drink la..

aiyo so many question. alright, i am posting as wht average malay makcik n pakcik would look at (of course, me being me as long as no pork served, fine!), the halal-ness would also include the cook (for most malay, must be muslim).. i dunno, my own experience, i never eat in chinese restaurant when i was in klang, due to my own parent n family..come to think of it, we rarely go out.. :P

only in ipoh i first taste chinese food cooked by chinese.. yummm yummm

Are you sure about this Nur???
If you go by this requirement, then all the halal places become not halal anymore. Where to find Chinese Muslim cooks?

what is halal food and what's not

If I were to describe the whole thing.. it'll be lengthy.. so I'd try my best to sum up.. and as usual if anything's unclear, do ask for clarification

almost anything is halal as long as the food is not harmful to life/health. we are not allowed to eat

1. poisonous animal/plant.. e.g. snake, or some known to be poisonous mushrooms..
2. animals that live in land ALSO in water e.g. penyu/turtle, ketam batu

3. animals that have fangs.. like a tiger... erm.. walrus? dogs/cats

4. cannot eat pork/lard/gelatine derived from pork.. or whatever related with pigs

5. dirty food.. i dun mean dropped on the floor dirty.. i'm talking bout fecal matter dirty

6. cows/chicken/goat/unta which are not slaughtered as proposed by Islam - electrocuted/chopping of the neck/death by boiling.. and such (jews slaughter their meat the same way as the muslims so we can safely eat kosher)

those are the ones that i probably can't remember..

anything from sea is good to eat I'm so a happy muslim hehe

regarding alcohol....
In the Quran it clearly states that a muslim shud never have anything to do with alcoholic beverages especially of course to drink it. some muslims wouldn't want to even go near it.. hence avoiding restaurants that serves alcohol altogether. I on the other hand.. I'm not bothered with a few cans of drink in the fridge or on other patrons table coz I know so that I have nothing to do with it.

aaand.. if a restaurant is serving alcohol.. but halal food the restaurant can't be branded as halal becoz it's not 100% halal.

another thing is about brandy/wine/rum/liqour in food... some believe that if the food is cooked >100 degrees that there's nothing wrong with consuming it coz alcohol evaporates after.. aa.. is it 72 degrees.. I forgot.. but yeah.. but liqour in tiramisu.. sorry la as tempting it may be.. cannot eat

and about non-muslims cooking for the muslims..
it's just a matter of how confident u are with the cooking. many muslims are not confident with non-muslim's cooking because some non-muslims only know that 'halal' means 'no pork'. So many are dubious whether or not the food are properly prepared. in our religion it's best to avoid eating food that ur not sure whether it's halal or not. So.. since halal food is almost everywhere in malaysia.. that's why muslims just not interested to go eat at non-muslim's places

do ask if still puzzled.. I'd be happy to elaborate

Nur,
Try Yum Yum Restaurant. Mostly nyonya type cooking but there are chinese dishes, too. I think it's halal. My favourite there... assam bawah fish. Oops.... I mean ikan bawal.
