At Werribee Plaza…sorry, Pacific Werribee on an errand, the minutes quickly crept up on us and before we knew it, it was lunch time. Hitting Google to look for halal spots in the vicinity,  we came across a Tripadvisor entry for MakanPlace. Chinese, Asian, Malaysian, halal…

We entered to find a beautiful mix of modern and traditional decor. Wanting to verify the halal status of this restaurant (because we could not find any halal certification or signs) we asked our waiter who asked us to wait so he could get his manager to clarify.

All the meat and chicken used was halal and cooked without liquor, and there was no pork on the menu, the boss explained.

We asked why they didn’t display any halal signage. This was because they did not want to lose customers who were ignorant about halal meat. To make sure I contacted Poultry & More, who confirmed that they were indeed the meat suppliers for MakanPlace.

Finally, our choice was the laksa, spring-roll, and white coffee set, and the fried noodles and corn soup set. The laksa is delicious and highly recommended.


Kali ini saya jalan-jalan di Werribee Plaza atau dikenal dengan nama barunya Pacific Werribee untuk suatu keperluan.  Tak terasa  sudah mendekati sa’atnya makan siang. Iseng buka Google untuk mengetahui restaurant halal disitu . Inilah pilihan kami:

Chinese, Asian, Malaysian, halal…

whatsapp-image-2016-11-23-at-7-38-39-pmTata ruang dan decorasi membuat kita merasa nyaman masuk direstaurant ini. Kami menanyakan kehalalan restaurant ini karena kami tidak menemukan tanda / sertifikat halal. Pelayan menjawab agar kami menunggu sebentar karena dia hendak memanggil boss-nya untuk menerangkan.


Semua daging dan ayam halal dan dimasak tanpa dicampur minuman keras. Mereka tidak ada menu dari babi…begitu keterangan dari si boss.

“Supplier kami Poultry & More (kebetulan tempat kami beli daging & ayam juga) bisa telphone mereka untuk menanyakan kebenarannya,” lanjut si boss.  

Masih belum puas kami menanyakan kenapa mereka tidak mendisplay sertifikat halal? Dijawab karena mereka tidak mau kehilangan sebagian kostumer yang tidak mengerti tentang halal.

Untuk memastikan saya menghubungi Poultry & More, dan mendapat jawaban yang pasti bahwa betul mereka adalah supplier dari restaurant itu.

Akhirnya pilihan menu kami jatuh pada paket laksa, spring-roll, white coffee & paket mie goreng & sup jagung. Laksanya memang enak sekali.
