The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has definitely impacted many of our lives. From travel restrictions to spending more time at home and whipping up delicious meals for your family, a lot of us have had to adjust our schedules. Although our health and keeping up our immunity are a top priority during this situation, there's also an economic downside since the outbreak of the virus. Not only are airlines, travel and tourism industry hit hard by the virus, but a lot of halal restaurants in Singapore have also been suffering huge losses. Credit: Giphy Some of you have also told us that you'd like to support local businesses during this period and that really warms our hearts. That's why we've rounded up these 14 halal eateries in Singapore that you can support! We understand that most of you are taking extra precautions and staying at home but don't fret, some of these eateries even have delivery services so you won't need to leave the house 🤗
1. Deanna's Kitchen
If you've been following us for a while now, you'd know that we are huge fans of Deanna's Kitchen! Their tantalising prawn mee broth is just too yummy to resist. The owner, Chinese-Muslim revert DeniseDeanna found it difficult to find halal prawn mee that tasted like the version she ate growing up so she began to cook her own. Whether you choose to savour their prawn mee with huge prawns or choose to have one of their seafood platters, you know you're in for a treat 😋 Psst.. they have just added a Seafood Bonanza ($35) to their menu consisting of crayfish, New Zealand green mussels, prawns and clams.
Credit: Denise Deanna If you need another reason to support Deanna's Kitchen, last month they delivered over 400 bowls of prawn mee to frontline healthcare workers who are working tirelessly during the COVID-19 outbreak. Half of these meals were donated by the public while the other half was donated by Deanna's Kitchen. But recently, Denise Deanna posted on her Instagram page that her eatery has been suffering losses during this period 😟 So, let's give Deanna's Kitchen some support, shall we? The good thing is, they have delivery service too!

Here's another eatery that's been doing their part for healthcare workers - T Bob's Corner! Last month, the eatery delivered some of their yummy dishes like lasagne, pasta and burgers to nurses as well as other frontline workers. Like Deanna's Kitchen, these meals were also sponsored by both the public and the restaurant itself ❤️ No visit to T Bob's Corner would be complete without savouring their steaks and smoked meats. Their specialty 1.4kg Angus Tomahawk is a must-try! Or if you prefer some lamb instead, order their rack of lamb - a flavourful combination of butter, rosemary, thyme and grilled to tender perfection 🤤 For those dining on a weekend, don't miss out on their Texas-style Smoked Brisket which has been cooked low and slow from 12 to 16 hours to get that perfect texture and taste. Planning to dine at their outletin Bedok? During this period, they have assured customers that they have sinks, soaps and sanitisers and urge those who are unwell to refrain from going out.

Unlike other mala eateries, you can’t customise your ingredients at Le Fuse, but the generous portion makes up for it, and you can choose from 3 different spice levels. The regular pot costs $12.80 but if you’re sharing with a bigger group, then get the large one for $15.80 instead!

With a crispy thin crust handmade to perfection, Positano's pizzas are to die for. We totally recommend the Positano Signature Pizza and Positano Signature Calzone 😋 It's so yummy you might even order a second round! If you want something comforting, we recommend one of their crowd favourites - Mac and Cheese which is sprinkled with breadcrumbs and topped with crab meat. What's great about Positano is that they are always reinventing their menu and adding newitems, so there's always something to look forward to. One of their recent menu additions is this Amalfi Grilled Chicken served with creamy mashed potato and homemade honey mustard sauce.
