Halal Islam Food, Kowloon City, Hong Kong
Earlier this year, I went to Hong Kong with my Muslim friends. Touring on our own, we were recommended to dine at Islam Food in Kowloon City. The restaurant is located at G/F, No.1 Lung Kong Road, Kowloon City (Next to Chow Sang Sang Securities). It is 100% pure Halal with Halal certificate.
Open since 1950, this award winning restaurant is very popular with locals and also recommended by Malaysia private TV Station Astro Oasis.
Many top Hong Kong food critics like Tou Tou and Choi Lan have given thumbs up to this restaurant. The restaurant is very popular with its Fried Beef Dumpling or Fried Beef Cake. There is one plate on every table as I noticed.
We started off the Xiao Long Bau or Steamed Beef Dumpling. Xiao Long Bau is a very popular dish from Shanghai, China. The Islam Food version is to replace the pork with beef. I never had a Halal Xiao Long Bau before and I must say, it is almost as good as the original. It is sold in a set of 4 pcs for HKD 26 / RM 10.40 / US 3.50.
Fried Ling Fillet with Celery (HKD 102 / RM 40.5 / US$ 34).This is a very simple stir fry dish. It’s a very common Chinese dish and it is available in Malaysia using a different type of fish. However, for a Halal version, it was my first.
Cold dish is very popular in traditional Chinese cuisine. Surprisingly, Islam Food substitute it with beef and offers Assorted Cold Dish (Shank/ Tripe /Tendon / Chicken / Ox-Tongue) for HKD 172 / RM 68.80 / US$ 23. Don’t be feared by the shank, tripe or even ox-tongue, it tastes good. Just pretend you missed reading it in the menu.
Next, will be another Chinese specialty dish. The Hot and Sour Soup (HKD 52 / RM 20.80 / US$ 7) or better known as Sichuan Hot and Sour Soup is a mouth-watering dish that will ignite your appetite.
Lastly, it was their signature dish, the Veal Goulash. The Veal Goulash was selling at 2 pieces for HKD 22 /RM 8.80 /US$ 2.90.
The skin of the Veal Goulash is similar to the “gouza” (gauzi) skin but thicker. The filling is the juicy cooked veal. Becareful while biting on the Veal Goulash as the inner sauce might spill out. The combination of the dry crispy skin and the juicy inner veal makes this signature this addictive and tasty. Thus, because of this dish, the restaurant is acknowledged by many magazines, newspapers and even food critics. This is a must try dish.
If you are looking for more Chinese oriented Halal Food in Hong Kong, this cannot be missed!
