Chinese Muslim Restaurant

It has been raining for a few days and we are now experiencing the second wave of floods. Due to the cold weather outside, this afternoon, I decided to have 'something hot' at a Chinese Muslim restaurant which belongs to my next door neighbour, Ridwan and the wife Wati..

The restaurant named AlHijrah is only about 5 minutes drive from my house!! Ridwan is actually a Chinese convert who married a local and resides here in Kuala Terengganu. He was actually a chef in many hotels around the world before he opened the restaurant. It is of no surprise that the food at his restaurant tastes so good!

This is one of my favourite dishes -Herbal Soup with beef and mushroom

Actually the restaurant-Al Hijrah is quite famous here in Kuala Terengganu. It's not really a big or fancy restaurant but the food is undoubtedly excellent. Everyday during lunch or dinner you will see a lot of cars parked along the roadside near the restaurant because it is one of the favourite restaurants here in this area.

Stir Fried Chicken In Ginger

The restaurant serves a wide range of tasty dishes but I think the most popular menu are the chicken rice and the fried rice set which are served with tasty soup and delicious chili sauce . What I love about the dishes is that most of them have spices (a lot of them) like peppers, gingers and chillies which are best taken when the weather gets cold...

If you go to Kuala Terengganu and would love to try the delicious menu, do stop by at Al Hijrah restaurant which is situated in Bukit Bayas. If you are from Kuala Terengganu town, the restaurant is about 5 minutes from the Bukit Bayas 7-Eleven convenience store on the left of the road.
