After a trip to Redang that involved mainly local food, my family of fussy eaters were looking for some variety. We found this cafe and hit the jackpot. The owner/chef Chris could not have been more helpful suggesting dishes and catering to our dietary requirements....More

hi there, thank u for ur interest in our establishment... it is very unfortunate for us to notify you that our restaurant does not have the JAKIM certificate. However, our restaurant had been operating for nearly 6 years & since the first day of our operation, we have opted to not serving any Liquor or any Non-Halal ingredients at all... Therefore, i as d owner & the Chef here can 100% fully assure you that we r a totally Halal Restaurant even though we haven't got the JAKIM cert. Anyway, we had been trying to apply for the JAKIM HALAL cert twice before. And the reason we had failed to obtain one is because due to the lack of only 1 Muslim local chef, because the rules & regulation for JAKIM HALAL cert application is that, apart from all of the ingredients & recipes in d menus served in the particular restaurant must be HALAL, one restaurant must also have at least 2 Local muslim Chef , Must be Local Muslim which is doing all d cooking & not a kitchen helper , not even Foreign Muslim is acceptable. We have tried our very best before for these 2 times of application for the HALAL cert but by the end of the day, 1 of our muslim chef will just quit before the inspection is done by the JAKIM department. I really consider this as a very bad luck for us coz during twice of our application & it just happened the same thing.. Therefore, up to today, even though we didn't manage to apply the Halal Cert but i still got my 1 local muslim Sous Chef & 1 local kitchen helper. Since then, i had given up upon applying for the Halal Cert. Is not that i don't want to obtain one but is just that the rules & regulation in applying one is just too strict especially on that one particular rules which required each restaurant to must employ 2 Local Muslim CHEF, or else u can just say goodbye to ur HALAL cert Application. As a conclusion, i can assure u once again even though we don't have the JAKIM Halal Cert but all our ingredients & menus served in Gossip Kitchen is totally HALAL & u can browse through our FB page that we do have a lot of Muslim Patrons who supports us for all these years.. Thank you for ur inquiry & hope to see u soon.. Best Regards, Chris, Gossip Kitchen.
