Shasha Dania •  Jun 07, 2023

We've done guides on halal food in Singapore's west before (and even one specifically on halal food in Jurong!) so it's finally time for us to turn our attention to the east! Paya Lebar is a favourite dining spot for many of us, located not too far east yet, but close enough to the central area that those of us living in the north or west of the country can still pop by for a meal. With the historic and iconic Geylang Serai market nearby, the area itself is important to the local Malay Muslim community so there's bound to be lots of good halal food nearby too! There's plenty of halal food available whether it's in Paya Lebar Square or Paya Lebar Quarter. So, if you're looking for halal food at Paya Lebar, here are 16 halal eateries worth travelling to Singapore's east for!
