Silkway Halal Cuisine

We were looking for a place to eat before beach v-ball and settled on trying Silkway Halal Cuisine. They specialize in Ningxia food and everything is halal. They’re located right next door to Bubble Fruity.

Parking in the rear! Argh, had no idea they had spots.

We dropped in on a Sunday evening (around 6:30pm) to an empty restaurant. A couple other small groups trickled in but for the most part, it was dead. The only way to describe the service is condescending. The waitress wasn’t impressed that we didn’t speak Mandarin; commence attitude. Not a big deal but just expect that coming here. At least they bring out a full tea pot and refilled it.

The menu is humongous with over 15 pages of options; cold dishes, soup, seafood, fish, lamb, chicken, beef, vegetables, noodles & rice, dim sum and dessert. Tons of classic lamb dishes and their roast local goat chops looked delicious (must pre-order in advance)!

2x Rice ($1.90 each)
DSC01875We ordered a couple bowls to go with our meal.

Chinese lamb burger ($8.95 for 2)
DSC01872These were different than the standard Chinese burgers. Buns were soft and pillowy.

Reminded me of a Taiwanese style bun.

Lamb skewer ($9.95 for 6)
DSC01882These were dusted with paprika and cumin. Skewers were respectable.

Boiled fish in hot chili oil ($19.95)
DSC01879This came with fish, bean sprouts, cilantro. The crew liked that the broth was spicy and had a good kick to it.

Would have been nice to get more fish pieces.

Sliced lamb with pickled cabbage in hot pot ($18.95)
DSC01876This was actually delicious. The broth was fantastic; good depth, homey and each sip was a mouthful of sweet, sour. Don’t know how the lamb was so tender but still retained a bite.

You can pay by card if it’s $30.00 or more (otherwise, it’s cash only). Prices are on the higher side; bring a group to take advantage.
