Islam food it is named, apparently it serves halal meat. Yet I did not come all the way to Kowloon City just for halal meat. I came here for their renowned Beef Patties 牛肉餅
I suppose it normally has a long queue of people longing to try their signature dishes, but since it's the morning on a weekday, there was no queue outside the shop but the restaurant inside seemed to be full. We didn't bother to go in and check if there were enough seats for us, we just ordered a take-away for the beef patties.
We made our order and the waitress kindly asked us to wait as the beef patties would be freshly cooked upon order. We sat down on chairs outside the shop, which are for people to sit when there is a long queue.
Soon enough, our beef patties were ready. I totally couldn't wait to try it. At first bite, I was already enjoying my time sucking the juice inside the patty. The beef patty is extremely juicy and I was pretty amazed by the masterwork of making the pastry as it would not easily break with the large volume of juice inside yet not too thick. The pastry wouldn't get too heavy in taste as well. For the beef, the freshness of it overwhelmed me. The use of halal beef is just a bonus to contribute the quality of the beef I believe. With the addition of scallion, it tasted absolutely savory. Everything about it was very well-balanced and made it a flabbergasting sensation to savor it. Just a kindly reminder: you might want to be gentle and careful when you eat the beef patties because the juice may leak out and it would be hot as they are all freshly made upon order.
Even though I only had the beef patties, I could definitely tell that their other dishes wouldn't be too bad. Hopefully one day I would visit again and try out their other dishes, but no matter what, the beef patties would be a must order. Even right now the savory sensation is tingling on my tongue and was still longing for more.
