[UPDATED 26 July 2019 - Delibowl is now halal-certified!]

It's no secret that we love Chinese food, but it's not always easy to find authentic AND halal ones in Singapore. Thankfully, there's been a wave of eateries serving halal Chinese dishes which are prepared the same way as those back in China.

One of the eateries that joined the halal Chinese food scene in Singapore back in February is Delibowl! Specialising in Sichuan dishes, Delibowl lets you savour traditional Chinese food in a fast-food concept. With the tagline, "One Bowl to Satisfy", Delibowl believes that their dishes have all the ingredients for a hearty meal☺️ They have 2 outlets at Paya Lebar and both have just been halal-certified by MUIS!

Note: We got the news about their halal certification from the store manager. He told us that while it's already halal-certified, currently only the halal logo is up in the outlets as the official certificate is still being delivered to the store.

P.S. Did you know that Delibowl shares the same owners as popular Chinese hand-pulled noodles stall, Nuodle? Nuodle's latest outlet at Northpoint City also has just received its halal certification too.

The first outlet at Paya Lebar Square specialises in classic Sichuan rice bowls. One of their top favourite dishes is the Mapo Tofu ($6.90 ala carte, $9.90 set meal) - chunks of soft tofu and minced meat are mixed in a spicy sauce made with fermented bean sauce, chilli oil and Sichuan peppercorn (think Mala!) Spice lovers will surely find this a treat!

You can also try other dishes at this outlet such as Steamed Chicken in Chilli Sauce ($7.90 ala carte, $10.90 set meal), Double-Cooked Marinated Beef Slices ($7.90 ala carte, $10.90 set meal), Stewed Beef Brisket with Tomato ($7.90 ala carte, $10.90 set meal) and more. The menu might seem simple with a few add-on side dishes but it's enough to fill your tummy. Their set meals include a side dish and soup, so it's pretty value-for-money ?

Delibowl's other outlet at SingPost Centre specialises in dumplings. Their Sour Soup Dumplings ($8.50 regular, $11.90 large) are a Sichuan specialty and a must-try! The dumplings are freshly handmade and will definitely warm you up on a rainy day.

There's also a dry version of this dish if you're craving something lighter. For those looking for something milder, get their Chicken Soup Wanton ($7.59 regular, $9.90 large) or Mushroom Chicken Noodles ($6.90 regular, $8.90 large) instead!

With not just one but two stalls, rest assured Delibowl would satisfy all your Chinese food cravings ? Now that it's halal-certified, do share the good news with all your loved ones and if you love Chinese food, check out these other amazing halal Chinese eateries in Singapore!
