Halal western restaurants in KL


Image from http://masak-masak.blogspot.com/

There are plenty of western restaurants in Klang Valley. Whatever u crave for - italian, spanish, tex-mex, hungarian, argentinean steak, pasta, pizza etc.

Generally western restaurants serve more expensive food compared to restaurants serving local food (malay/chinese/indian), however nowadays it is quite common for mamak or hawker stalls to serve western dishes like steak, chicken chop, pasta etc.

For us Muslims in KL/M'sia, we are so lucky because we are able to sample food from around the world without worry because most restaurants are halal or pork free.Ha ha n we can only sample food from different countries here, because if we were to visit foreign countries most of the time we are not able to do so because of diet restriction.

When I toured the states years ago, I was so tempted to tried their ribs n even McD n Burger King but....because of my diet restriction I can only eat bread, egg, fries, salad n more veges!! ...and when I was backpacking across Europe during my student days I had to lug with me instant noodles, dried rendang (meat floss), boiled eggs n cans of sardines n of course we would buy bread wherever we were. So we had Austrian bread, Belgian waffle, French croissant, German bread, Czech bread, Norwegian bread, Swedish bread, Danish bread, bread, bread n more bread...I was sick of bread by the end of the almost 4 weeks trip.

So, those of you who plan to stay in non-muslim countries for couple of years because of studying or working, stuff yourself silly before flying there....:-)

**Some of the restaurants below are pork-free i.e. not certified halal by JAKIM because they serve alcohol at their premises or they did not apply for halal certification from JAKIM. Check before ordering food to satisfy yourself that meat served was procured from halal certified supplier.

Ayob Cafe @ Kota Damansara
http://food.malaysiamostwanted.com/venues/ayob-cafe-kota-damansara

Another must go western restaurant. The shop is converted from house so it's located in residential area -- very serene surrounding. Got some japanese-styled tables where you sit cross-legged to eat. First-class service where they serve a piece toasted bread (roti bakar) with butter while you wait for your order. Most importantly price so cheap like RM9.50 for chicken chop and RM11 for chicken and fish (I recommend this one: you get two pieces of fish and 1 piece of chicken) and fruit juices for RM2

Appreciate if my visitors could read the whole entry before making non constructive comment. I specifically insert this comment in the above entry "**Some of the restaurants below are pork-free i.e. not certified halal by JAKIM because they serve alcohol at their premises or they did not apply for halal certification from JAKIM. Check before ordering food to satisfy yourself that meat served was procured from halal certified supplier."
