  • 13 Best Halal Food Places near you in Hong Kong

    Hong Kong is a well-known global Asian hub with a beautiful harbor that attracts many visitors. Due to increasing numbers of Muslim tourists, the Hong Kong Tourism Board began recognizing Muslim needs, playing an important role in creating a hospitable Muslim-friendly environment. While we know the Hong Kong dining scene is alive and recognised at the forefront of culinary standards worldwide, Halal food places are rather limited.  However, in spite of this, the few restaurants available are not lacking behind in terms of taste and flavour. Despite being a predominantly Chinese city, Islam has been practiced in Hong Kong for more than 175 years since the British Hong Kong era. Today, about 300,000 Muslims live in Hong Kong, coming from a diverse background including Muslims from south of Mainland China, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, especially Indonesian Foreign Domestic Workers (FDWs) in particular. Muslim travelers can explore the delicious cuisine in areas where Halal food is commonly available such as around where mosques are situated (Wan Chai, Nathan Road in Kowloon) and where Muslim ethnic groups in Hong Kong reside. The Hong Kong Halal food and restaurant guide below covers eateries in the Hong Kong Island, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Mongkok, Hong Kong Airport, and tourist attractions such as Disneyland. This guide excludes Kebab House and Ebeneezer chains which scatter around Hong Kong, as well as Indian & Pakistani shops. In this guide, finding Halal food in multi-ethnic Hong Kong means you can explore not just Halal Canton cooking, but also Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Indonesian cuisine. Alternatively, there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan joints such as cafes, Buddhist and Indian restaurants which can be found there, other than the recommendations below. As a note, please be advised that major international food chains in Hong Kong (KFC, McDonald's) are not Halal certified. Be mindful that you need to know the unspoken rule of dining out in Hong Kong - be prepared to share tables if you happen to dine in the local outlets. Knowing a few Cantonese phrases, such as Ngóh m̀h'sihk jyū (I don’t eat pork) or Ngóh jihnghaih sihk chīngjān yéh (I only eat Halal food) may come handy!

Islamic Centre Canteen Picture Credit: eng.wikipedia.org Islamic Centre Canteen opened in 1981 and is situated on the 5th floor of a local mosque or Islamic centre (you are advised to dress appropriately). Take the lift, or the stairs for a pre-meal exercise, and then you will be seated in one of the roundtables. Open from breakfast till dinner, do come early and avoid coming after 2.30pm for a good selection of dim sum. It is known for being ‘the only place for Halal Cantonese cuisine in town’. Order any dim sum you fancy (we love the steamed glutinous rice with chicken in lotus leaf), and other rice, noodles or Canton stir-fried dishes. via GIPHY This joint is reserved for Muslims only from Friday to Sunday, and Public Holidays.

LockCha Tea House LockCha Tea House is a charming place where you can experience some tranquility in the heart of the busy city while enjoying freshly-made vegetarian dim sum.

Their signature dish may look similar to other Halal Chinese restaurants (such as veal goulash and curry lamb chop), but their hot & sour soup and cold cut platter (spiced beef shank, tripe, tendon, chicken, jellyfish/ox-tongue) may also interest the adventurous foodie.
