You would think that finding a Halal Korean Restaurant in Malaysia would be easy. After all, Malaysia is a Muslim country with more than half of its population Muslims. They are plenty of Halal Korean restaurants that are Halal-certified by JAKIM. While some are Halal-supplied, others are pork-and-alcohol free. Trying to sieve through the restaurants are tricky but here’s a guide to do so!

“For your information, we are currently waiting for our HALAL certificate for all our outlets. However, our management is fully aware of the dietary needs of our Muslim friends; as such, our ingredients and chickens are sourced solely from JAKIM certified suppliers. No alcohol or pork is used in our kitchens or food served to customers. In fact, 99{a6f1d5f0e2780f863d365672824f841c2ff5deac4ec481f2bbb91d81c9f64eea} of our ingredients are already halal certified by JAKIM and IFANCA, an association recognised by JAKIM. The balance ingredients which have not been certified are plant-based products imported from Korea, hence need more time to get certified. We have also streamlined all our business practices according to halal guidelines.

While we take great care to ensure all good prepared and served to our customers are halal, pork-free, and alcohol-free, we do have 3 premises (Pearl Shopping Gallery, Penang G-Hotel, SkyAvenue Genting) serving alcohol to customers. The alcohol is prepared in a separate bar area, using different glassware and washed in a separate area away from all the plates and utensils we use to serve our food. This is permissible by JAKIM and is similar to the operation of hotels in Malaysia where the food served is halal or pork and alcohol-free, but they also serve alcohol on the premises.

Hope this information helps.

Thank You.

Regards,

KyoChon Malaysia
