But firstly, what is a ‘halal’? According to the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS): ‘Halal’ is an Arabic word which means lawful or allowable. Any food or drink which falls under this category is permitted for consumption. Most food and drinks are considered Halal unless they are stated clearly in the Quran (holy book of Islam) and Hadith (prophetic sayings) as forbidden or non-Halal.

And what constitutes non-Halal? ‘Non-Halal’, also traditionally known as ‘Haram’, means unlawful or unallowable. As the name implies, any food or drink which is classified as non-Halal is prohibited for consumption. In general, all harmful things are non-Halal. Examples of these include the meat of dead animals and birds, flesh of swine (pork), intoxicating drugs and alcoholic beverages.

MUIS Halal-certified restaurants

MUIS Halal-certified establishments use halal ingredients and do not serve alcohol, whether in drinks or food. A restaurant chain would need to apply for MUIS Halal certification for all their outlets in order for them to be MUIS Halal-certified. This means that even if one outlet is MUIS Halal-certified, another outlet by the same restaurant chain may not be, necessarily.

Muslim-friendly restaurants

Muslim-friendly restaurants can be classified as establishments that serve halal food with halal ingredients, but may offer alcoholic drinks.

Muslim-owned restaurants

Muslim-owned restaurants are exactly what the name implies – restaurants owned by Muslims. Generally the understanding is that these Muslim owners should be responsible enough to serve their customers halal food that they wouldn’t doubt consuming themselves.

Always check if a restaurant is MUIS-Halal certified via the website as certification often expires.

Image credit: Dim Sum Place via Facebook

MUIS Halal-certified restaurant
Who doesn’t love a little dim sum?! No one does halal dim sum quite like The Dim Sum Place, which offers an authentic menu of Cantonese dim sum with some local flavour. Their classic Crystal Shrimp Dumplings and Vermicelli Rolls will not disappoint, and the Molten Salted Egg Custard Buns will leave you wanting seconds. One of the dishes that surprised us the most (in the best possible way) is the Chicken Feet with Special Sauce – soft, tender and full of flavour, the chicken skin falls right off upon the first bite. Don’t knock it till you try it! We also highly recommend the congee, which easily serves two per bowl.

Heard of the Japanese restaurant chain, Monster Curry? They’re best known for their Japanese demi-glace curry made with 14 vegetables and spices served on monstrous 35cm and 41cm-sized plates, and they’ve now opened a chain of halal restaurants called Monster Planet! Just like Monster Curry, Monster Planet offers the same great taste with a menu brimming with a variety of Japanese Curry rice dishes (Supreme Beef has to be our fave), ramen, pastas, burgers and desserts – all affordably-priced! You can test your tolerance for heat with up to five levels of spiciness, and choose between individual servings or sharing plates which are great for group or family meals. We highly recommend saving some space for dessert – try their Churro Parfaits or one of the Honey Toast desserts, all paired with Häagen-Dazs ice cream. They’ve also got kids’ meals served in cute Monster Planet dragon-themed packaging!

MUIS Halal-certified
Excelling in halal North Indian and Indian Chinese cuisine, we love Copper Chimney’s various flavours (thanks to the fresh spices flown straight from the motherland). Starters come in the form of the flavourful Masala Roomali, a thin bread filled with onions and tomato, and Kurkuri Bhindi (crispy, deep fried lady’s fingers). Tuck into Chilli Cheese Naan, Chicken Lababdar (a sort of butter-chicken-and-curry combo) and Salmon Fish Masala, which is cooked to perfection in Copper Chimney’s custom made tandoor. The Triple Szechwan Rice is a particularly memorable dish, made by frying long-grain rice, hakka noodles, and spicy gravy to create the perfect hotplate of comfort food. Conveniently located right opposite Mustafa Centre, Copper Chimney’s main restaurant makes for the perfect hangout pre- or post-Mustafa shopping!

Hajjah Mariam Café: Nasi Ambeng in Beach Road

This hidden treasure used to be in Westgate Shopping Mall but has now relocated to Beach Road. Hajjah Mariam offers nasi ambeng platters. Don’t know what that is? Once you find out you’ll never go back. According to Hajjah Mariam, Nasi Ambeng is a fragrant rice dish consisting of white rice prepared with meat, vegetables, fried coconut flesh, Sambal Goreng as well as other dishes. It’s a popular Javanese-Malay cuisine that’s normally seen during festivities and it is supposed to signify togetherness and peace at meal times. It’s exactly what it sounds like – two to six people huddled around a large tray of rice and traditional Malay dishes feasting away with their hands (it’s the best way to eat!). They also provide cutlery if you prefer.

We’re huge fans of The Halia – by day it makes a beautiful halal brunch spot surrounded by the greenery of the Botanic Gardens, and come evening it’s a romantic resto for date night! The Halia is not new to discerning foodies in Singapore; having been around since 2001, plenty of locals, expats and tourists are familiar with its signature modern European-Asian cuisine. But its halal certification in June 2017 has shaken the local culinary scene, sending halal food seekers all over the island to visit for their famous all-day brunch and dinner offerings! Make sure to make a reservation before you head down.

With a name like ‘The Secret Garden’ you already know you’re setting yourself up for a beautiful meal! This French-inspired bistro in Kampong Glam is delightfully decked out in flowers and already buzzing no matter the time of day (so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment!). We tried the Avocado Kale salad, a salad medley served with honey citrus dressing and a surprise dash of fried anchovies which made it equal parts fresh and filled with umami. The Aglio Olio with Smoked Duck also deserves a special mention for being simple yet full of flavour, with a delicious chilli padi kick to go along with the perfectly tender slices of duck. Make sure you don’t skimp on their desserts like ondeh-ondeh cakes!

Are you serious about your meat? Charr’d is a new halal restaurant along Changi Road that’s the first in Singapore to offer halal A5 Kuroge Wagyu from Mie Prefecture. We highly recommend the Heavenly Meat Board ($198) which boasts four premium cuts – Butcher’s Secret (Australian Grain-fed Hangar steak), A5 Wagyu Ribeye, A5 Wagyu Striploin and A5 Wagyu Filet. You’ll get two sauces with this, and we can’t sing enough praises about the house-made chimichurri and béarnaise. Don’t skimp on the appetisers! The A5 Wagyu Cubes and Salmon Cube Taré are beautiful as are the Truffle Fries and Charr’d Broccoli.
