1. Islamic Centre Canteen

No visit to Hong Kong is complete without having a dim sum feast and the good news is you can try authentic halal dim sum! At Islamic Centre Canteen, you’ll find almost every type of dim sum available. Get ready to feast on Siu Mai (烧卖), Har Gow (虾饺), Xiao Long Pao (上海小笼包), Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken in Lotus Leaf (糯米珍珠鸡) and so much more!

Although it’s a little confusing to walk from the MTR, we promise it’s worth it. DO NOT, we repeat, DO NOT, leave Hong Kong without trying this!

Address:  5th floor, Osman Ramju Sadick Islamic Centre, 40 Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

2. Islam Food

If you have to pick only one dish at Islam Food, let it be the veal goulash. So crispy and juicy, you’ll be wanting more! But do be careful as you take your first bite, the stew is hot and it may squirt.

Other local dishes we would recommend include the chicken with sesame sauce and beef dumplings.

    Just leaving a comment here to say thanks for these guides on Halal Food in Hong Kong. We went and visited all 4 places on these list recently and they are all very good (Ma's is the most expensive out of these 4 places). Its very rare when we travel to non-muslim countries to find tasty halal authentic local food such as in these lists.. Our favourite of the 4 places would be Wai Kee.. The roast duck is amazing and the mutton curry is equally great. Must try both! One of the locals even ask us how did we know of this little known (to outsiders) food court, and we point to the 'HHWT' sticker on the shop's counter :) Keep up the good work..
