Shasha Dania •  Aug 30, 2020


Having lived in the north-west of Singapore my whole life, I'll be the first to admit that this part of the country hasn't really been known for its halal food. But in the last few years, things have really changed and you can even find outlets of popular restaurants in Bukit Panjang and an underrated ice cream cafe in Choa Chu Kang. ? So the next time you visit the north-west, here are 12 halal eateries in Choa Chu Kang, Bukit Panjang, and Bukit Batok you've got to check out!

It checks off everything for an IG-worthy hangout and it even has interesting ice cream flavours too. Ready to try a scoop of cotton candy bubblegum or Milo dinosaur? ?
