Here’s our ultimate guide to the BEST halal eateries in the country, from local to international cuisine! A word of caution, try not to visit these eateries all in one day… or do, we won’t stop you😛

P.S. If you’re looking for exciting attractions to visit to walk off your food coma, you can find a list of top attractions on our website here!

International Cuisine
1. Kucina Italian Restaurant

Italy’s wonderful and all but it’s not exactly the most accessible place when you’re craving pasta! Meaning kitchen in Italian, Kucina is truly a blessing to Muslim diners looking to enjoy classic Italian fare like gnocchi and creative, contemporary dishes like polenta fries 😮

From the classic margarita pizza to bestsellers like pizzotto, this restaurant is perfect for family dinners and intimate gathering with friends😁

2. So Pho

Craving for a hot bowl of yummy, comfort goodness? 😋 Head down to So Pho, a halal Vietnamese chain restaurant that serves all kind of traditional Vietnamese dishes ranging from soup noodles and wraps to rice bowls and traditional sandwiches.

To make ordering more convenient, the restaurant provides order sheets at each table. Customers can take their time to decide what they want before filling up the order sheet. 🙂

The star dish would definitely be the pho, a type of Vietnamese noodle soup typically made from beef stock. Springy noodles with light and flavourful broth, you’d definitely want to try this if you’re looking for something light! A pretty un-pho-gettable meal to be quite honest😉

You also have the option of choosing the meat – either beef or chicken. If you’re up for some bite-sized appetisers, we’d recommend the flavourful rice wraps or crispy, fried spring rolls! For a lighter meal, you might want to opt for the banh mi – a Vietnamese snack consisting of a baguette typically filled with meat, pickled vegetables, and chili.

Halal Status: Halal Certified (by MUIS)

*Do note that all outlets are halal certified except the ones in Changi Airport T3, Jewel Changi Airport and Ion Orchard (as of 14/9/18).

3. Afterwit (Mexican/Asian Fusion Cuisine)

Afterwit, the quaint little café along North Bridge Road that everyone’s been taco-ing about! (Pun intended 😝)  Serving up a variety of unique tacos, cheesy quesadillas and ever so filling burritos, this café is a must visit 👍

What’s really interesting about Afterwit is that they infuse local flavors into classic Mexican cuisine. Some flavors include nasi lemak (chicken, coconut rice, sambal), beef biryani burritos and even dendeng tacos! Though a little on the pricey side, the rich and unique flavors totally make up for it😍

4. Maki-San

Maki-your-own-sushi right here at Maki-San😛  If you’re a picky eater and need your meal to be personalised to the very last detail, this is the place for you. Plus, it’s super affordable!

Salted Egg Sauce – a house special

Credit: @stormscape on Instagram

Start by choosing which wrap you’d like your maki in – traditional nori (seaweed), crepe (egg wrap) or healthy soy wrap. Next, choose your carbs. For the health-conscious, they offer brown rice option as well! Then, take your pick of ingredients, sprinkles and sauces to complete your maki! I really wasn’t kidding when I said your maki is personalized right down to the very detail😌

If you’re craving for something crispy (or just feel like eating something unhealthy), opt to fry your sushi at a small additional price! Do note that you can only opt for this if you chose the traditional nori wrap.

This cosy little hipster den serves really good coffee and the most amaaaazing burgers😋 Managed by the same people behind Afterwit, (working title) is one of the top go-to cafes in the Bugis area, serving up platter after platter of generously stacked burgers with some seasoned fries on the side.

working-title-halal-cafe-sg

With creatives names like Baconator, Fowl Play and The Working Title Tower of Power, you can expect super filling burgers bursting with flavour!

If you’re still feeling peckish, order their Garlic Tatter Tots or the many other snacks they have on the menu.  We’re absolutely in love with their Ribena Wings; a combination that shouldn’t work but it just does in the best way possible😊

7. Hei Sushi

If you’ve always walked past sushi restaurants and wished there was a halal one where the sushi is served on a conveyor belt, you have to head down to Hei Sushi! It is Singapore’s first halal kaiten sushi restaurant and as the name suggests, the sushi travels on a conveyor belt. You can conveniently reach out and take any sushi which appeals to you! Check the colour of each plate for the price of the sushi☺️

#HHWT tip: If you don’t see what you want on the conveyor belt, just order your dish using the iPad at your table!

Must-try dishes include the Aburi sushi and the Shake Tobimayo – seared salmon topped with tobimayo sauce (flying fish roe sauce & mayonnaise). The salmon was seared to the right degree and the sauce complemented the dish perfectly. Yummy!

Hei Shake (breaded prawn sushi rice roll layered with salmon slices, flying fish roe and cheese sauce)

Apart from these dishes, you cannot miss Hei Sushi’s specialty makimono. It’s one of those comfort dishes that really hits the spot😌 With artistic creations such as the Spider Maki (soft shell crab and lettuce wrapped in perilla leaf) and Sunshine Maki (breaded prawn sushi layered with mango), you’ll definitely be back for more!

8. Koh Nangkam

We all have those days when we just randomly crave for Thai food, and what better place to go to than Koh Nangkam? We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve dined here because it’s just that good! Expect the same authentic, rich flavours you get eating in Thailand here, with traditional dishes like pad thai, fiery tom yum soup and more.
Credit: @atikahxoxo on Instagram

We’re personally massive fans of their green curry and pandan chicken; our meal doesn’t feel complete without them whenever we dine here! Wash it all down with a huge towering glass of Thai milk tea 😉 Though a little on the sweet side, the (extra) sugar can soothe the spiciness (at least temporarily) from the spicy dishes!

10. Hjh Maimunah Restaurant

Serving a wide array of scrumptious kampung styled traditional Malay and Indonesian dishes,Hajah Maimunah Restaurant is a cult favourite amongst the locals!

If you somehow still have room in your belly for dessert, the restaurant also serves traditional desserts such as Kueh Lapis (layered cake) and Ondeh Ondeh (a Pandan dessert filled with palm sugar)!

Credit: @veronicaphua on Instagram

#HHWT Tip: We recommend dining as a group as the portions are huge! You can try to finish everything on your own but we don’t recommend it 😝

11. Tang Tea House

Now, you may see Chinese food all around the island but very few of them are halal-certified. 😔 Among the halal-certified Chinese eateries, the best place to try Zi Char (a term used by locals to describe home-style and comfort dishes) would be Tang Tea House! With 3 outlets island-wide, the rustic restaurant serves halal dim sum and other authentic Chinese local dishes. Best of all, the Bedok outlet opens till 3am – perfect supper spot 😜

tangtea3

We highly recommend trying the fried bee hoon (stir-fried rice vermicelli), hor fun (flat rice noodle) and everyone’s favourite – chicken rice! Another popular dish is the sinful but utterly delicious Pan Fried Crispy Bee Hoon. Craving for these yummy dishes yet? Check out their menu to get a better feel of what they serve!

tangtea4

Also well-known for the authenticity and freshness of its halal dim sum, Tang Tea House serves dishes ranging from Shanghai steamed dumplings, Siew Mai, Har Kow and their famous Golden Sand Pau (Liu Sha Pau)! The risk of you overindulging is very high so you’ve been warned! 😂

12. Zam Zam

Home to the most popular murtabak in Singapore, the century-old Zam Zam restaurant is conveniently located at North Bridge Road. When ordering murtabak, you can choose between mutton, beef, chicken and even deer! Though all options sound very appealing, we’d recommend their mutton variation. Served with an extra layer of fried plain prata at the bottom and an egg with minced mutton on top, this dish is worth every. Single. Calorie.

Credit: @iam.zahir on Instagram

If mutton isn’t your calling, try their chicken murtabak instead! With tender chunks of masala chicken wrapped in a fluffy egg prata, it’s a good alternative to its’ red meat brothers. Aside from murtabak, Zam Zam also serves other dishes such as Roti Prata, Mee Goreng, Biryani, Fish Curry and more!

13. Haji Kadir Sup Tulang

You maaaay have to get your hands a little dirty for this next eatery😉 Any local will tell you that the best place to get sup tulang, or mutton bone marrow soup, is Haji Kadir Sup Tulang! Their signature dish is basically a huge pile of hollow bones with bits of meat dangling in a sea of thick red gravy, which is enough to bring out the primitive side in anyone!


Credit: @genduttapihepi on Instagram

This is also the kind of dish that you have to eat with your hands for the full experience! No utensils necessary though, be warned, your fingers will be stained red for a few days (at the very least😝).

#HHWT Tip: The bone marrow is honestly the best part of this dish. Don’t knock it till you try it!

If sup tulang isn’t your thing, you can still sample other dishes like mee kuah, nasi goreng, mee gorneg and more!

We don’t know about you but we’re always on the lookout for affordable, halal Chinese food! We’ve only recently heard of Encik Tan, though the establishment has been around for a few years.
Credit: @proudly_singaporean on Instagram

Yet another eatery where Muslims can enjoy halal Chinese cuisine, Encik Tan serves up dishes from the classic wanton noodle and fishball noodle to carrot cake and popiah. Their signature noodle is a must try – a big, hearty bowl of wanton mee with fishballs, slices of fishcake, a chicken meatball, and dumpling. Plus, it’s super affordable, being under SGD5!
