Naturally, with such a large Islamic community across the island, halal restaurants in Singapore are not only essential but well-loved and extremely varied. It's rare you'll walk down a busy street in Singapore and not find halal restaurants that are vibrant and ready to serve, and the same can be said for shopping mall food courts and even hawker markets. But before we get into the details, as many of you may likely already know, halal is a dietary standard prescribed in the Qur'an, and its translation from Arabic simply means lawful or permitted – when the animal in question has been slaughtered and the meat prepared in a certain way. So, now we're up to speed, the rundown of what to expect from the vast amount of halal restaurants in Singapore starts now.
As briefly mentioned, the variation of halal restaurants in Singapore is one of their many strengths, and this applies particularly to where all of them sit on the price ladder. Restaurants like Rayz Bistro in Rochor offer fine dining for when the occasion demands it, while haunts like Afterwit in Bugis is chilled and casual with halal tacos, burritos and more. Meanwhile, My Spice Affair in Kallang offers local-style dishes that are exceptional in terms of quality and cost next to nothing. The very nature of Singapore's halal restaurants means all kinds of foods are available to anybody who fancies them, Muslim or not, well-lined pockets or not. It's all good stuff, folks.
All pockets covered and then all cuisines covered is very much the name of the game amongst Singapore's halal restaurants. Yep, as you've probably been able to tell already, halal restaurants in Singapore are far from limited to just a few types of food. In fact, you'll be able to track down just about any you might happen to fancy, with the help of Quandoo, of course. Whether you're after an American-style breakfast of pancakes and syrup, some gorgeously fresh fish or seafood with Mediterranean accompaniments, Asian delicacies, Mexican fare or gourmet Italian indulgence, Singapore's halal restaurants know how to rustle up all of this and much, much more.
As we said, you'll find good halal restaurants everywhere in Singapore but there are certain areas that you could consider as sizzling halal hotbeds. Kallang and River Valley are certainly a couple of them with restaurants like A B Shaik's CUCINA doing all kind of wonderful things, and meanwhile in Bugis, The Landmark and Padi @ Bussorah are not to be missed, as well as Kampong Chai Chee Restaurant in Changi, Charisma D'venue Restaurant in Joo Chiat or any one of a wealth of halal seafood restaurants as you head towards Marine Parade. Oh, and if you find yourself in Ang Mo Kio, Eatzi Gourmet Bistro is must for New Zealand steaks from completely grass-fed animals. Delightful.
In case at this point you're feeling a little overwhelmed with choice, fear not, as our recommendation in the face of so many splendid restaurants is to dine in Bugis. We've name dropped this district a few times already and that's because it's home to a very large Islam community, and the Kampong Glam area is still thought of as Singapore's Muslim Quarter, hosting the Sultan Mosque and the Malay Heritage Centre. As you would expect from an area with such a rich Islamic past, Bugis has attracted some stellar halal restaurants and is now fast-becoming one of the best places to go for contemporary cuisine that meets Islamic standards.
