Suzy Ameer is known for their frozen foods but what makes them special is that they sell Dendeng Ayam Madu which has the similar fragrant barbequed taste that bak kwa has (or so we were told by our Chinese friends). The Ayam Madu (honey chicken) flavour is sweet and the flavours almost melt in your mouth! If you’re a fan of sweet foods that have a smoky aftertaste, you can’t miss out on this! Best of all, since Suzy Ameer’s Dendeng Ayam Madu is frozen, you can easily thaw it and enjoy the meat hot and fresh off the stove!

4. Yumeat Plant-based Bakwa

Singapore has many plant-based brands and one of them is Yumeat! You can get your fix of meatless bak kwa available in three packaging colours - red, green and blue. You can buy them online at NTUC’s online store and they make great gifts! There isn’t much of a difference in taste however, the texture is a little more tougher than the typical meat and is a lot sweeter too! Each pack comes with six slices of individually packed bak kwa so everyone can get a piece.

5. Angie’s Tempeh

On the topic of plant-based foods, you can’t forget about the superfood tempeh, which can also be made into bak kwa! Angie’s Tempeh is a local vegan brand that produces tempeh-based goods and bak kwa is no exception. ? It’s marinated with a special in-house vegan bak kwa sauce and barbecued for a smoky flavour! You might want to get your hands on these soon as Angie’s Tempeh Bak Kwa is an exclusive item offered only during the Chinese New Year period.

For bak kwa that’s completely plant-based, you have to check out NOM FOODS! Their ingredients mainly consist of pea protein, jackfruit, and mushroom. Their boxed packaging is adorable and makes for the perfect gift for your loved ones! Not to mention, they’re bite-sized and great for little ones!

Just because the typical bak kwa isn’t halal doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy alternatives. Everything is more tasty when you get to share, so make sure to SHARE this article with your friends and family to give them some ideas on how to enjoy the new year festivities!
