What is Halal Chinese Cuisine?

Many people believe that all Chinese food is Halal, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The reason for this misconception lies in the history of Chinese immigration to Canada. During the time that many Muslims were immigrating to Canada (1958-1977), most came from countries where Islamic dietary laws were already common (Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, etc.). Because of this, many of the early Halal restaurants in Canada were Chinese.
Over time, however, the demographics of Canadian Muslims have changed and so has the type of Halal food that is being served. Today, there are many different types of Halal Chinese cuisine being served in Toronto, from Hunan to Szechuan to Cantonese.

One of my favourite restaurants in the area!! They have halal meat and also a good variety of dishes. Their skewers are the best, especially the beef and lamb kebabs. They also have good daily specials but better to call to ask what it is.

The schezwan hakka noodles or the chicken fried rice are equally delicious and comes in good portions. Had also tried their spicy calamari its good.The chilli chicken is their most popular dish and is actually good in taste and quantity. Overall been there twice back to back just love it."

"Kolkata Chinese food at its best , order some house special Hakka chow , hot garlic chicken everything less spicy , beautiful food they followed instructions perfectly too , less oily , and zero spicy , love you guys keep up the good work."
- karan bishayee
"You can always respect a hakka place that gives patrons the option of wet or dry Bombay chicken, wet or dry crispy beef, etc. I personally find hakka places that do not hide behind sauces as authentic as you can really taste the quality of the ingredients and the spice. The crispy dry beef is only slightly sweet and the Bombay dry chicken just has the right spice and tenderness. Fish based dishes are tasty too and the fillets are tender without breaking apart. Clean dining area that will attend to once restrictions are done."

- muhammad hasan
"It's hard to find Chinese cuisine with Halal ingredients anywhere in Canada. We love Chinese food and always struggle with finding authentic Halal Chinese dishes that taste good, but the food at Salt & Pepper was perfect. We got the veggie rice (first time to see broccoli in a such an item which we loved), noodles with shrimp, Szechuan chicken and beef with ginger... Everything was fresh, tasty, saucy, and full of flavor. Quantities were also too generous. Highly recommend this place and definitely will be going back again to try more dishes as there are a lot on the menu with reasonable prices."

Customer Review:

"My go to place for Hakka food. They're the best hakka around hands down. The prices are very reasonable and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I've been going to this place for the last 2 years and never once did I regret it. The only one thing I'd like to see improvement on is their rice portions. The rice portion is too small for the amount of meat and gravy you get so you end up either ordering more rice or making your own rice to go with it. Otherwise highly recommended "
- 1 S
"Interesting dishes, fresh tasting, lots of options. The server was very helpful and polite, there was an extremely rude Indian family that got something they didn't expect, the server handled it very well, the kitchen staff even came out to try to fix it. I would have told this family to F* off, and that's why I don't own a restaurant."
- Jerry Bluehorse
