If there is one thing that makes me proud to be a Malaysian is their multiculturalism lifestyle and the various types of foods and beverages that we got to try. Though, Malaysia is known to be a Muslim-friendly region, sometimes when we’re in the mood for something Chinese, it could be a challenge—especially if we wanted to tag along our extended families and muslim friends. Just imagine a huge bowl filled with hot soup, a mouth-watering dim sum, slurrpy pan mee and washing everything down with herbal teas. So, where can we go for Chinese cuisine that serves no alcohol, pork-free ambience and 100% halal free restaurants? Sit back and relax, Glitz by Beauty Insider discovered some of the best restaurants that serve drooling Chinese dishes, a fair price list and of course, Halal-certified.
