Singapore's West Coast is not famous for its halal food, but there are lots of hidden food gems to uncover. ? From Mala Xiang Guo and Thai Beef Noodles at hawker centre prices to a historic rojak stall that's over 30 years old - whether you're at Clementi or Kent Ridge, this halal food guide to Singapore's West Coast is just what you need! ?

If you're a meat-lover make sure to try their Fajitas, which come with grilled beef or chicken topped with fresh vegetables, and salsa picante. ?

2. Thaksin Beef Noodle

Located in a hawker centre just a 5-minute walk from Clementi MRT, Thaksin Beef Noodle serves up Thai-style beef noodles packed with flavour. ? Personally, this is one of my favourite beef noodle stalls in Singapore. The beef chunks are tender, and if you opt to mix in tripe and other offal they're all soft and chewy too. The chilli sauce here has a strong sourness to it, so I recommend going easy on it if you're not a fan of vinegar! (And yes, you can request to not have basil leaves and coriander added to your bowl. ?)
