The incredible month of Ramadan is almost upon us and we at HHWT can't be more excited? With Ramadan comes spending quality time and breaking fast with your loved ones, fulfilling spiritual obligations and improving your relationship with Allah SWT❤️️ If you foresee yourself breaking fast outside more often or planning a gathering with your family and friends, we've got you covered?
From innovative, international dishes to local comfort food, here's our ultimate guide to breaking fast in Singapore?
1. Hyde & Co.
One of the first prominent names to enter the halal cafe scene, Hyde & Co. needs no further introduction! With Ramadan just around the corner, the cafe has reinvented itself and is introducing a new take-out concept called Take Hyde Out.
Instead of waiting for your food to arrive with your poor tummy rumbling in protest, beat the hungry crowd and pre-order your food online instead
! Not only do you cut down on your waiting time, you simply have to pop by the cafe and pick up your food for iftar
! How convenient is that??
Take your pick from Modern-Singapore fusion mains like gourmet oven-baked pizzas and designer pastas! Highlights include the Geisha (a fresh smoked salmon pizza with mentaiko mayo spread topped with bonito flakes), Lady Hyde (your classic Hawaiian pizza with a local twist; complete with shrimp floss and bacon 'bak kwa' crunch) and The Bomb (a prawn omelette-pizza hybrid with a tangy sambal chincalok
Famous for their innovative twists on local fare, Hyde & Co. has taken our classic Singaporean dishes a notch higher with dishes like Firecracker (spicy laksa
cream linguine served with a succulent tiger prawn) and Gnocchi Mee Rebus
(gnocchi tossed in their homemade mee rebus
sauce served with sambal sotong
and a perfectly poached egg).
If you still have room for dessert, the "Unicorn Dreams" is certainly a pleasant sight! Get your sweet fix with golden-brown waffles drizzled with a Paddlepop fondue, topped with tiny marshmallows and popcorn . Other sweet delights include Hyde's Kaya Toast (your favourite kaya toast with pandan ganache and gula melaka
shavings topped with a Coconut brownie ice cream), Notting Hill (Hyde’s apple crumble with homemade butter cookie crumble served with white chocolate ganache and Madagascar Vanilla bean ice cream). Don't forget to wash down your meal with a refreshing glass of Addams Family (Iced Turkish Apple Tea)!
Do note that this new brand features a take out concept – where Hyde’s fresh and unique offerings are served in quality take out parcels (made from recycled materials) giving customers an option for dine in or take out. What's more, with the cafe extending it's opening hours to 11pm, you can drop by the cafe for a late night nibble after taraweeh?

3. Texas Chicken
You can’t go wrong with fried chicken for iftar, right?? Get your hands on 100% fresh chicken
that is crunchy on the outside yet super juicy and tender on the inside, only at Texas Chicken! We’re salivating just thinking about it? Plus, the fast food chain uses 8 piece cuts, which means bigger portions that are value for money (and more chicken for our rumbling tummies?)!
Texas Chicken is constantly coming out with new and interesting flavours to tantalise your tastebuds, and as part of this year’s Ramadan special, they've relaunched one of their bestsellers - Sambal Chicken! This will be a true test of spice tolerance for all those sambal lovers out there? Marinated with spicy sambal seasoning, hand-breaded and sprinkled with even MORE sambal seasoning for that extra oomph, this flavour is so good that even our resident sambal
expert has given it her stamp of approval?

4. WORD Cafe (Muslim-Owned)
Tucked away in the rows of retro shophouses along Upper Thomson Road, WORD Cafe's industrial container facade definitely grabs your attention. This cafe offers more than just the Instagram-famous rainbow bagel! Their Cut The Crab appetizer is a hot favourite amongst patrons; breaded crab meat cakes stuffed with gooey mozzarella cheese?
Carnivores will love their Cow-ch Potato, a nicely seared striploin cut Angus beef steak with caramelized onions and garlic butter on a bed of potato puree. The cafe's pride and joy, the Handsome Burg, may look like it's been effortlessly prepared but did you know that this gorgeous rainbow bun takes about 6 hours to make? A colorful twist on your typical burger, the juicy beef patty is covered with smokey orange cheddar cheese, turkey bacon and a spicy peanut butter sauce.
If you're more of a fish person, the Salmon Khan is a must try! The Norwegian grilled salmon is lightly seasoned to maintain it's ocean freshness and served with a side of their famous potato puree.
Ever tried breaking your fast with a drink in a light bulb?? The WORD. concoction is the refreshing light bulb drink you've been seeing on your Instagram feed; made with lemongrass, lemon, mint, assam and
ice cream soda. In for a sinful dessert? Their star dessert, The Original Sin, is an apple crumble made IN an apple! Topped off with a scoop of ice cream, it's definitely worth. Every. Single. Calorie. ?
