Hong Kong: Islam Food

26 January 2009

We were pretty excited to see food catered to Muslims because it's pretty much a rarity in Hong Kong. Anyone can tell me what's the name of this restaurant, because I'm quite sure it isn't "Islam Food" haha.

We were here for a delicious snack as Parthenia promised us, and when we asked her what we were going to have, she pointed to this review above. Golly, we were hungry already.

Fried Beef Dumpling

Again, I'm making up the name of this food. But gosh, if they had this is Singapore, I would eat this everyday (and get terribly fat while at it)! So what is it really?

Well, think of it as deep-fried "roti prata", with moist, tender minced beef in it. The beef is very well-marinated with herbs and spices by the way, making this a most satisfying snack.

One thing though. When you bite into this dumpling, the sauce spills out, and I mean, spill out. It was quite amusing watching my friends trick each other on the first bite (and laughing gleefully as the tricked victim back off in surprise) and how they subsequently bit much more carefully into the dumplings.

About HK$10 per piece.

Kowloon City. I know, it's huge, but it's near Cambo Thai.

There is a movement occurring in Hong Kong the moment about what is the certification process to obtain certification and the Halal logo. There have been several venues and vendors who are claiming to have halal but in fact are also selling pork. check out my blog at:
