History of Halal Chinese Food

Over a thousand years ago during the Tang Dynasty, when Islam first transmitted to China, Chinese halal food was made available. China has a sizable Muslim population, and they have a long tradition of eating halal food. Ten different ethnic groups have developed their own distinct cuisines based on Islamic dietary restrictions, including the Hui, Uyghur, Kazak, Dongxiang, Kirgiz, and Sala.

Halal food is referred to as "qing zhen" in China. In most circumstances, it is easy to locate a "qing zhen" restaurant in any Chinese city, big or small. In several locations throughout the city, you can find anything from top-rated restaurants to food stalls serving halal food. Most of them are run by Muslim immigrants from West China, who are comparatively poorer. On top of this, Arabian, Turkish, and Iranian eateries are also found in major megacities such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.

It is fortunate that today, halal Chinese food is easily accessible throughout the world.

Cooking Demonstration by Chef Patrick Ng

As one of many lucky writers to join the Islamic Writers Workshop organised by the Islamic Tourism Centre, I had a chance to see Chef Patrick Ng in action. He skilfully demonstrated the way to prepare stir-fried chicken with Szechuan sauce right before my eyes, while carefully explaining every step of the process. Additionally, he pointed out the difference between the non-halal and halal version of this dish, which are determined by the ingredient selection.

Food Menu at Tung Yuen

I'll be honest: this was my first time tasting proper Chinese food. The first few bites were slightly unusual to me, but the taste slowly but surely grew on me. During our visit, Chef Patrick Ng served more than six dishes that were created just for us.

Tung Yuen Chinese Restaurant offers a selection of Cantonese cuisine that is sure to please its patrons. If you are planning to visit soon, I'd recommend that you go for the lunch set, which features three types of appetisers including Ebiko and Green Mixed Vegetable Salad, Chilled Jelly Fish with Sesame Sauce, and Stir-Fried Chicken with Bell Pepper and Szechuan Sauce.

Next, I got to try the Crispy Shanghai Pancakes, Sweet and Sour Fish with Pineapple and Bell Peppers, Stir-Fried Fresh Seasonal Vegetables with Garlic, and Double-Boiled Chicken Soup with Black Garlic and Top Shell Meat. For dinner, the Tung Yuen Trio Combination was served, which came with Steamed Crabmeat Dumplings, Chilled Japanese Octopus with Jellyfish, and Wok-fried Sliced Top Shell.
