Looking for the best Halal haunts in Singapore, mama? Have our list on hand and start ticking off these halal restaurants!

More and more eateries here in Singapore are going the halal route to accommodate our Muslim friends. With a plethora of halal restaurants there’s no shortage of halal fare in a variety of cuisines all over our little island! Here you’ll find our ultimate guide to all the best Muslim-friendly food that this Little Red Dot has to offer – some MUIS Halal-certified, some halal-friendly and some Muslim-owned.

But firstly, what is ‘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 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 isn’t, necessarily.
  • Halal-friendly restaurants can be classified as establishments that serve halal food with halal ingredients, but may offer alcoholic drinks.
  • 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.

copper chimney halal north indian food

Copper Chimney

Locations: Farrer Park, Marina Bay, Chai Chee
MUIS Halal-certified
Excelling in 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 a few delicious mains, like the 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 it makes for the perfect hangout pre- or post-Mustafa shopping!

The Dim Sum Place

Locations: Kampong Glam, Changi
MUIS Halal-certified
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.

monster planet halal restaurant causeway point woodlands

Monster Planet

Locations: Jurong East, Orchard, Paya Lebar, Woodlands, Jewel Changi Airport
MUIS Halal-certified
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-certified 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 yummy Häagen-Dazs ice cream flavours for the perfect end to a hearty meal. They’ve also got kids’ meals served in cute Monster Planet dragon-themed packaging!

665ºF

Halal-friendly
Perched on level 38 of Andaz Singapore hotel is 665°F, the hotel’s premium steakhouse. The vibe is surprisingly intimate, almost like dining in a Chef’s kitchen.

The famous Pira oven (the temperature for which the restaurant gets its name) is a main attraction. Appetisers include must-trys of Lime-cured Hamachi with Charred Cucumber and Watermelon Radish, and the creamy Hokkaido Scallop Ceviche in Lemon Vinaigrette. Don’t miss signature dishes like the USA Prime Short Rib with Barbecue Glaze and the superb Australian Lamb Chops – a generous dish of three double lamb racks, the exteriors grilled to crusty perfection, yet tender and pink inside. All the dishes are made with ingredients from halal sources, but do note that they serve alcoholic beverages on the menu. 665ºF is a date night must!

Hajjah Mariam Café

Muslim-owned
This hidden treasure used to be in Westgate Shopping Mall but has now relocated to the Kampong Glam area. 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 served on a tray and enjoyed together in a tray that serves up to 6 people. It is only natural to eat Nasi Ambeng by hand and it is supposed to signify togetherness and peace at meal times.” It’s exactly what it sounds like mama – 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.

The Halia

MUIS Halal-certified
We’re huge fans of The Halia – by day it makes a beautiful brunch spot surrounded by the greenery of the Botanic Gardens, and come evening it’s a romantic resto for date night!

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. Their WhatsApp reservation service staff are lovely to chat with and will make the process a breeze.
