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.

5. Hung’s Chinese Restaurant

Tucked in a corner of Chungking Mansion building, this restaurant might blend in with the other halal restaurants in the building. But it’s the only one here serving authentic Chinese cuisine! The restaurant is small but cosy and comfortable☺️

For those who love chicken, you’d be excited to know that this restaurant is known for its yummy crispy roasted chicken. We initially thought the chicken would be too dry but we were surprised at how succulent the meat was. The crispiness of the skin gave the tender meat a really good balance of texture!

We recommend trying some of their other dishes too, especially the black pepper beef and fried rice! The beef was a tad spicy but the meat was easy to bite into. And the fried rice was so yummy that it could actually be eaten on its own😋

3. Main Street Market

For your mid-day 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.

We tried their egglet with ice cream, and Mickey waffles which came with Maple syrup and Chocolate dips – served hot and fluffy! The size of the waffles was pretty big, making it perfect for sharing. If you prefer something more filling, try their jumbo hotdog. Sit on the steps at the side of the road or the benches as you enjoy the food while taking in the vibrant Disneyland atmosphere😌

2. Panda Food To Go (Kiosk 03)

Located at the Waterfront, this is a takeaway kiosk offering a wide variety of food! Choose from their yummy meals or if you prefer something lighter, there are small bites such as paus and hotdog buns. As it’s a takeaway kiosk, you’ll be able to have your meal at the cafeteria next door (not Halal-certified).

We personally opted for something more filling – Hainan Chicken Rice and Beef Ball Steamed Rice, as this was our lunch. The portion of the rice and dishes was huge and definitely filled us up for the day☺️ We thought the chicken was a tad bland but it was really yummy when paired with the soy dip! For a healthier option, choose their salad bowl.

This dessert kiosk serves vegan and Halal-certified milkshakes and ice cream. The best part is that it’s conveniently located right next to the Observation Wheel! Choose from their wide variety of flavours – from Ying Yang Sesame (a signature local flavour) to Pina Colada (alcohol-free!).

We tried the raspberry flavour just because we wanted that tinge of sourness😜 The ice cream might taste a tad different from the usual ice cream you’re used to (trust us, this is a lot healthier), but give it a try and you’ll find yourself thoroughly enjoying this new burst of flavour!

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

4. Chrisly Cafe

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

We especially loved their pineapple bun (bo lo bao) and egg tart! The bun was baked to perfection with a golden brown top crust yet the bread was still soft and fluffy. Their egg tart’s crust was crispy and flaky – a signature of Hong Kong egg tarts. Our first bite into the snack sent us straight to cloud nine with its silky smooth egg filling🤤

Note: We sat in the café as the owners made special arrangements for the team. Do note that the café itself is not halal (only the bakery is halal-certified) so if you decide to eat in the cafe, do dine at your own discretion.

The café is tucked at the far end of level 3/F in Shun Tak Centre. You’ll pass by Starbucks and the Macau ferry counters. Continue walking straight till you see the café!
