Top 10 yummy halal food spots around favourite city locations

  • Written by Have Halal Will Travel

Many are concerned about whether it’s possible to find local halal food in Hong Kong, and some even consider taking instant noodles with them. But there’s really no need for that. You’ll be happy to know that Hong Kong is actually full of yummy halal food (including authentic local food), with much of it found near major attractions! These are just a few of our favourite spots in different areas.

Along Victoria Harbour and Kowloon City

Hong Kong’s breathtaking skyline is best witnessed at Victoria Harbour. After grabbing dinner at the yummy eateries nearby, head to the waterfront to witness the gorgeous lights and music of ‘A Symphony of Lights’ — a multimedia show that is recognised as one of the world’s most spectacular! If you’re looking for a different perspective of Hong Kong, be sure to take the Hong Kong Observation Wheel .

Hung’s Chinese Restaurant

Tucked in a corner of Chungking Mansions, Hung’s might blend in with the other halal restaurants in the building, but it’s the only one here, that we’re aware of, serving authentic Chinese cuisine. Chicken lovers will be excited to know that this small but comfortable restaurant is known for its roasted chicken. The crispiness of the skin is the perfect texture to balance with the soft and tender meat.

We recommend trying some of their other dishes too, especially the spicy black pepper beef and the fried rice!

 

Halal status: Muslim-owned
Address: Chungking Mansions, 36-44 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon

 

Happy Cow

The Happy Cow dessert kiosk serving vegan, halal-certified milkshakes and ice cream is conveniently located right next to the Observation Wheel. Choose from a wide variety of flavours — from Ying Yang Sesame (a signature local flavour) to Pina Colada (alcohol-free).

Enjoy your ice cream on the lawn in front of the shop, as you take in the gorgeous view of Hong Kong around you — the perfect way to relax and unwind.

Chrisly Cafe (Bakery)

A trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without savouring some of the local snacks. And Chrisly Cafe is just the place for you. The cafe is co-owned by a Muslim and although the entire cafe is not halal, their bakery is separate from the main kitchen and they have gone to great lengths to ensure that all ingredients used in the bakery are halal.

The pineapple buns are baked to perfection with a golden brown top crust while the bread remains soft and fluffy, and the egg tarts have a signature flaky crust.

 

Halal status: Halal-certified bakery — the cafe itself is not halal (only the bakery) so if you decide to eat in the cafe, do so at your own discretion.
Address: Shop 10, 2/F, Emax, 1 Trademart Drive, Kowloon Bay, Kowloon

 

Islam Food

You might be planning to skip Islam Food as it’s not quite as accessible as other places, but it’s definitely worth the trip! In fact, it’s so popular that it opened another outlet nearby.

The veal goulash at Islam Food is served steaming hot and the stew in the patty — packed with tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat — oozes out when you cut into it. Be sure you also try their beef dumpling soup, curry mutton and the scallion pancake. The latter may look a bit like roti prata, but is packed with much more flavour and filling.

 

Halal status: Only Halal-certified ingredients and meat used
Address: G/F, No. 1 Lung Kong Road, Kowloon City, Kowloon / G/F, No. 33-35 Tak Ku Ling Road, Kowloon City, Kowloon

In Causeway Bay

Hong Kong’s major shopping district consists not only of popular international brands but also many halal food places, perfect for keeping your tummies full while you shop.

Causeway Bay

Wai Kee

A short 7-minute walk from Causeway Bay Station lies a renowned halal roast duck stall. Wai Kee might be the only stall where you can find halal roast duck, but it’s known as one of the best in Hong Kong, period.

And you’ll understand why once you sink your teeth into the tender duck meat. The flavour coupled with the golden brown, crispy skin is indescribable. But don’t just come here for the duck rice! The wonton noodles, soy chicken rice and signature mutton curry rice are firm favourites too.

 

Halal status: Muslim-owned
Address:  Shop 5, Bowrington Road Cooked Food Centre, 1/F, Bowrington Road Market, 21 Bowrington Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island

 

Islamic Centre Canteen

Islamic Centre Canteen is a convenient 10-minute walk from Causeway Bay MTR Station and is quite easy to find, as it’s located in a mosque.

Islamic Centre Canteen

Choose from their range of steamed and fried dim sum. Our top picks for steamed would be the siu mai made with chicken, which is soft and succulent, as well as har gow (steamed shrimp dumplings). For the fried, we particularly recommend the deep fried shrimp wonton.

If you’re coming here only for the dim sum, remember to do so before 3pm, as the dim sum menu is not available after!

If you’re in Causeway Bay close to dinner time, try Islamic Centre Canteen’s dinner menu. For a place known for their dim sum, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how good their Cantonese main dishes are. 

 

Halal status: Muslim-owned
Address: 5th floor, Osman Ramju Sadick, 40 Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island

 

Aladdin Mess

For authentic Indian food, Aladdin Mess is the place to go. It’s located right next to Times Square and is a cosy spot amidst the hustle and bustle of Causeway Bay. Be sure to try the garlic naan with their brisket masala — the soft and tasty naan goes really well with the spiciness of the masala!

If you prefer seafood, try their clams masala and fish korma.

 

Halal status: Halal-certified
Address: 2/F, 60 Russell Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island

Mongkok

This area is a haven for those seeking a mix of international brands, budget shopping and souvenirs! Bargain your way through Ladies' Market or feast your eyes (and pockets) on the wide array of limited edition sneakers at Sneakers Street . There’s no doubt you’re going to be spending quite a bit of time here, so be sure to fill your tummy while you’re at it.

Ma’s Restaurant

Specializing in Xinjiang cuisine, Ma’s Restaurant is only a 5-minute walk from Prince Edward MTR Station. Try their sweet and sour fish and, for that spicy kick, the chilli beef. And don’t you leave this place without trying their veal goulash! The stuffed beef pocket is one of their signature dishes — some say Islam Food’s goulash is more flavourful and tender, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

If you’re a fan of salted egg yolk, their salted egg yolk prawns are bound to impress. The prawns are fried and coated with sauce, giving a deliciously crispy exterior. End your meal with some traditional Chinese dessert! It’s not easy to find halal options, but this eatery does not compromise on quality. We opted for the black sesame tang yuen (glutinous rice balls), which were served steaming hot in a smooth sesame paste — a definite must-try dish!

This restaurant is made up of many stalls offering different cuisines from Korean and Japanese, to Southeast Asian cuisine. You can choose to sit in the air-conditioned area (though it’s a tad dark inside) or eat al-fresco. There’s also an area at the entrance to park your pram so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of bringing it into the restaurant.

With such a variety it’s tempting to order something from each of the different cuisines here! Crowd favourites include the baked salmon combo (Flavours of Japan) and the BBQ beef short ribs (Korean Treasures).

Main Street Market

For your midday snack, head to the halal-certified Main Street Market kiosk and indulge in Disney-themed food! It’s quite easy to find this kiosk as it’s near the entrance of Disneyland on Main Street.

Try their hot and fluffy egglet with ice cream and the Mickey waffles, which come with Maple syrup and Chocolate dips. The large portion size makes the waffles perfect for sharing. If you prefer something more filling, try their jumbo hotdog. Sit on the steps at the side of the road or on the benches to enjoy your food while taking in the vibrant Disneyland atmosphere.

Ocean Park

This might be Hong Kong’s oldest theme park but its age is only testament to how awesome it is! There’s so much to do and see that you’ll have to spend at least a full day here. And we know just what you need to fuel all that running around — food!

 

Panda Cafè Food to Go

Located at the Waterfront, this is a take-away kiosk offering a wide variety of food! Choose from their selection of meals or, if you prefer something lighter, opt for one of the small bites such as baus (buns) and hotdogs. Although it’s take away, you can sit and enjoy your meal in the cafeteria next door (not Halal-certified).

The Hainan chicken rice and beef ball steamed rice make a great lunch. The portions are huge and will definitely sustain you for the day.️ For a healthier option, choose their salad bowl.
