Today we will be taking a break from our regular posts to more mundane stuff. As the semester progresses the workload becomes increasingly hectic, so if I have not gotten back to you for replies to e-mails then my apologies. Anyways I will finally have a break in San Diego. Since I have never been there so I thought I should ask the readers about halal chinese places in San Diego. So if any reader has suggestions regarding halal chinese food in San Diego or even places to visit there please feel free to leave a comment. Your comments will be highly appreciated (insha’Allah).
Just came back from San Diego. Here is an interesting fact, the Gas Lamp district in downtown San Diego used to be the old China town in San Diego before it was torn down around 1914. My inqury into whether there were any Muslims amongst the original Chinese railroad builders in California in the 1860s or so did not yield any results. Anyways be sure to check out the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum if you are in the area. Its somewhat small but will give you a taste of Chinese history in the San Diego area.
So appearently there are at least two Chinese Muslim restaurants in San Diego but somebody forwarded me this information after I left town so I could not go or as Idrisi would say we could not make tele-link with authentic halal Chinese food. Here is the info for anyone who may be interested in the future.
