Direction to Eid Restaurant in Itaewon, Seoul (Korea)

Exit 3 of Itaewon station. Continue to walk straight as you step out of the exit and turn right at the first junction. Then, turn left at the third alley/ road.

It is about 15 min walk and uphill for most parts. It might not be convenient to have it every day, especially with luggage or with elderly.

Menu:
When we arrived for dinner, there were limited items on the menu. Only 4 dishes displayed on the ipad, but nonetheless, the meals were delicous!

Tips: Make reservation, especially if you will be arriving at lunch or dinner time as the space is quite small.

and especially during winter as you would want to wait outside in the cold night, like we did.

Lunch at Islamic Centre Canteen, Hong Kong

Islamic Centre Canteen is located at Level 5 of Masjid Ammar and Osman Ramju Sadick Islamic Centre.

Once you enter the building, turn right for the lift lobby.

And you can just walk right into the canteen.

The only place for halal dimsum in Hong Kong

Once in the canteen, get a menu from the waiter/ waiteress.

You will also be given a piece of paper. Make sure you have it all the time when making order.

You don’t have to write anything on it to order. It’s meant for the staff. You can order the main dish from them. To order the dimsum simply walk over to the dimsum counter, and ask for the dish. You can also bring over the menu and point to which one you would like.

Once you get your dimsums, head over back to your table. Cutleries are also there and it’s self-service.

The main dish is quite a good portion for 1 serving. The regular plate is at least for 2-3 pax!

It’s on 2 plates but it’s actually 1 serving of its regulate plate. I portion it for my lunch and had to pack the remaining, which will be my dinner.
