Though they usually serve alcohol, Daya Izakaya is a Muslim-owned establishment so rest assured, you can immerse yourself in the izakaya vibes with halal Japanese food! As the only halal izakaya in Singapore, Daya Izakaya serves scrumptious Japanese fare such as Kaminabe (mini paper hot pot), Sashimi, Maki, Kushiyaki, Agemono and more. 😍 The best part?
