[Updated 7 September 2020]

While it's rare to encounter a halal restaurant in the Michelin Guide for most countries, did you know that the Michelin Guide Singapore 2019 has SEVEN halal eateries listed? ? It's a small number compared to the overall guide but definitely a promising sign that our local halal eateries are getting the recognition they deserve. Here are the 7 halal-certified and Muslim-owned Michelin-approved Singaporean eateries you should try out next!

Note: The eateries have received one of two ratings in the guide. 'Michelin Plate' awards eateries that serve quality food, whereas the 'Michelin Bib Gourmand' awards eateries that serve high-quality food at affordable prices (by local standards).

1. Allauddin's Briyani

Located in Little India's Tekka Market, Allauddin's Briyani is a hawker stall whose humble appearance belies its delicious dishes. Already locally famous as one of the top briyani spots in Singapore, the Michelin rating only confirms what we know - that its briyani is truly one of the best! ? Their briyani comes with a plate of fluffy yellow rice, served with a generous and tender chunk of mutton or chicken meat drenched in gravy. They also have a 2nd stall in Tekka Market selling Indian Muslim staples like mee goreng, prata, and murtabak.
