A name of a restaurant that’s also describes a cuisine, QING ZHEN is a Chinese Islamic restaurant (written in Chinese as 清真菜館 and pronounced in pinyin: qīng zhēn cài guǎn) at Novotel in Kuala Lumpur City Centre. Qingzhen is also the Chinese word for “pure truth” which is equivalent to Halal (the term used in Arabic speaking countries to describe anything permissible under Islamic law). So essentially a Chinese Islamic restaurant is a “qingzhen restaurant” that serves “qingzhen” food. A quick search online reveals a growing popularity of such establishments worldwide including parts of China owing to a large community of Chinese Muslims.
Dim Sum favourites include Steamed King Prawn “Har Kau” with Crystal Skin, Crispy Spring Roll with Mongolian Sauce, Deep Fried Cheddar Cheese Roll with Organic Homemade Beancurd Skin, Homemade Mini Lotus Paste Bun in Traditional Style with Egg Yolk, Signature Steamed Shanghai Dumpling with Shredded Ginger, Steamed Asparagus Tips with Fish Paste and Prawns, Crispy Yellow Vegetarian Spring Roll Sweet and Spicy Peanut Sauce, Deep Fried Paper Prawn Roll with Dragon Fruit Chili Salsa, Signature Egg Tart, Steamed Szechuan Spicy Dumpling with Black Vinegar and Hot Pepper Oil, Signature Deep Fried Prawn and Mango Roll and many more.

While not exactly my favourite Cheng Teng Qing Zhen serves something close I could not get enough of especially on a hot day. I helped myself to 3 servings of longan and bean curd dessert that was just too delicious to pass up.
