‘Dumpling’ Breakfast @ He Jia Sea Food Restaurant

I normally have Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik for breakfast. Sometimes I have bread with peanut butter, ‘roti kawin’ or ‘roti cobra’ at kedai mamak. I am not a fussy eater, I eat to live.  The menu is quite similar every day, but once in a while I do try something different especially when I have time to spare in the morning. For the record, I never had Chinese food for breakfast (as long as I can remember), but today I decided to try something different and ended up with Dumplings for breakfast instead of my usual fatty Nasi Lemak.


Honestly, I love Chinese Food but it is not easy to find a Chinese restaurant that is certified HALAL by JAKIM in KK. I think many restaurant owners either find it hard to fulfil the requirements set by JAKIM for HALAL certification or they just don’t bother to apply for one. After all, I do see Muslims eating at Chinese restaurants as long as there is a ‘Serve No Pork’ logo at the premise.

What they don’t realise or choose to forget is that it is not merely pork that is ‘haram’ to eat. Well, that’s another issue to discuss. My posting today is about a restaurant not far away from Luyang that serves a very delicious Dumpling and is certified HALAL by JAKIM.


He Jia Sea Food Restaurant

I heard from a relative that  He Jia Sea Food Restaurant is run by a chinese muslim man and assisted by his family and staff.  Some days, you can see his children serving the dishes.  Highly recommended by many who have been there, so how could I resist when the business hour starts at 6am?  My kind of place!


The Chicken Mushroom Dumpling (6 pieces of dumplings) costs RM7-00 (steam / fried).  It is quite delicious and surprisingly, tastes very familiar to some other food that I can’t recall.  One of my friends ordered the Golden Butter Prawn with rice (wet) at RM9-00 and proclaimed it worthy of praise.  Somebody wanted Penang Style Fried Kuey Teow but the Kuey Teow was not yet available.

So he chose noodle instead.  I think he was informed that the noodle/ramen was specially produced in He Jia’s kitchen.  Somebody ordered for Chrysanthemum tea and got the real stuff with tiny flowers 😉  and petals floating in the glass (RM3-50).


Most of the meal (plus rice) are priced between RM7-00 to RM9-00 but you could also order the individual dishes such as the butter prawns according to quantity (small, medium or large).  Overall, it was a satisfying and very fulfilling breakfast for us.
