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.

The Dim Sum Place: Halal dim sum

Locations: Kampong Glam, Orchard, Changi
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?
