Have you ever had Chinese Halal food? Myself included, the connotation of a traditionally Middle Eastern religion and the Chinese ethnicity was something more difficult to wrap my head around. From the sounds of it, you may be thinking it’s some sort of fusion ish, but not quite. Chinese Islamic Cuisine, is essentially Northern/Beijing influenced Chinese cuisine prepared using Halal methods where the meats are prepared accordingly for consumption by Muslims. This unique cuisine stems from the 1-2% of China’s total population being Muslims. I’m not gonna lie, I had to Google all this and I never even knew this type of cuisine existed until I ate at Islam Food in Kowloon City, Hong Kong. Islam Food is notoriously known for their Veal Goulash, a steaming hot juicy meat pocket! It’s similar to xiao lung boa but in a shape of a cookie/hockey puck instead!
