Majority of the population here in this sultanate are Muslims, thus halal food and ingredients are easily accessible just about everywhere. But for the non-Muslims who also consume non-halal food, do you know where to get those non-halal ingredients needed for your dishes?
To many, meat and poultry is included in almost every meal in our everyday life. Few of my favorite dishes would be the fried spring onion with pork, dark soy chicken, roasted duck or the basic fried luncheon meat in a can. You can simply find these dishes at the non-halal restaurants here. However, if you feel like cooking and enjoying these dishes at the comfort of your home, served piping hot, you’ll need to know whereabouts to find the ingredients needed.
These are the few stores that i know of.
Hua Ho Departmental Store (Non-halal section)
The non-halal sections are available at Hua Ho Manggis and Hua Ho Kiulup.
Lim Ah Siaw
Located near Gadong Central, at the very end of Simpang 15. The meat and poultry sold here are fresh from their farm every morning. Business starts as early as 6-7 am. Stocks are sold out pretty fast, so be early.
Also located near Gadong Central, at the very end of Simpang 15, next door from Lim Ah Siaw. They sell fresh corn-fed chicken, kampong chicken and fresh pork. Business starts as early as 6 am. But fresh stocks will only arrive at 7 am odd. I was there at 8 am odd one morning, and they only had one corn-fed chicken left for the day. Be early to avoid a wasted trip down.
