There are not many restaurants that serve Halal Chinese Food in the Klang Valley. One such restaurant that we have discovered is Dong Yi Shun located at C-G-06, Ground Floor, Dataran Glomac, Jalan SS6/5B, Kelana Jaya, Petaling Jaya, 47301 Selangor.
This is indeed good news for Muslim who would like to taste Chinese food cooked by Chinese Muslim chef. We had the opportunity to try out some of the specialities in this restaurant.
The first dish we had was the Golden Empress Fragrant Fish. The Garoupa fish is coated with flour seasoning, is deep fried and topped up with a sweet and sour sauce. The sauce serves here is a little different as it has a tinge of spiciness added into it. Perfect combination with white rice.
Next, was the spicy chicken, here again the chicken is fried and cooked with the spices. It is a little spicier for me and the chicken is a little over fried. Another one of those dishes you can eat as a snack food taken with some really cold drinks.
Another snack food that we sample that night was the Spicy Sliced Potato, as the name suggest, it was really, really spicy. It quite difficult to eat as a snack and only white rice saved the day.
The next dish, we sample was supposed to be Zi Ran Lamb, but unfortunately the Lamb was sold out and we had the settle for Zi Ran Beef instead. This dish is really spicy and you have to really love hot stuff to enjoy this dish. The condiments used are very strong and the beef mixed well with it. Best served with rice or eat as a snack.
Next we sample the dumpling dishes. First on the table is the Xiao Long Bao, since this is a Muslim restaurant, the key ingredient used is the beef filling. For me after taking and sampling so many Xiao Long Bao, the one serves here lack the oomph in that the skin were a little too hard, and they were not enough soup base in the filling. Normally when you sample this Xiao Long Bao, one is expecting the soup filling to be oozing out on your first bite. It never happened here.
On the filling the beef was a little too hard too, not that smooth probably due to the usage of too much of lean meat.
The next dumpling was the Pan Fried Dumpling Chicken, this is slightly better than the earlier Xiao Long Bao, as taste wise it was a little more tasty compared to the earlier dumpling. The bottom part which was pan fried was crisp and nice to bite at.
Finally we sampled the Ramen. Ramen in this restaurant is made fresh by the Chef when a customer makes an order. We had the opportunity to have a first hand demo on how he made the Ramen.
The first ramen dish was the Beef Ramen, this ramen is served with thinly sliced radish and beef. The dish was very peppery and not as what I have enjoyed from other restaurant.
The next ramen was the mushroom ramen, this provided a slightly better soup based and tasted better compared to the beef ramen.
The last dish for the night was the Hot and Sour Soup. There are 8 spices used to make this soup. It is somewhat similar to the popular Szechuan Soup which shares the same spiciness and sourish taste.
