[UPDATED 13 May 2022]Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates: https://bit.ly/3LnFN1FJewel Changi Airport is a fan-favourite when it comes to planning your weekend activities. The place has continued to draw large crowds ever since it opened in April 2019, and we can definitely see why! Between the shops, attractions, and of course restaurants and eateries, Jewel Changi Airport is also a defining Singaporean landmark on its own. While you're there, we're sure you're wondering what you can eat there. This halal food guide to Jewel Changi Airport is just what you need!

1. A&W

After much anticipation, we finally got the A&W halal certification in November 2020! Their menu is chock-full of classic American favourites, with everything from burgers and Coney dogs, to fried chicken and waffles. And of course, who can forget about their iconic draft root beer floats? If you love burgers, be sure to savour the thick and juicy beef patty in the Mozza Burger!

If you're a fan of coffee, you wouldn't want to miss getting some coffee from this world-famous coffee store which originated from Kyoto.

But what's special is that you can select your own coffee beans and they'll be freshly roasted on the spot for you! This is something that you can't get at many other coffee shops out there. You can also request a single origin or blended coffee too! What a treat! Halal status: The coffee at Arabica does not contain alcohol or animal derivatives. They do sell some croissants but we are unable to verify its halal status. We advise you to visit at your own discretion.
