Halal Food in Singapore

 5 Sep 2022  

 

Singapore’s colourful diaspora has gifted the city with a culinary scene that celebrates its diverse culture. A benefit of this harmonious stew is the influence of the island’s Islamic community and the availability of halal restaurants and delicious halal food. We highlight some of the city’s best for halal bites.

 

A Culture of Cuisines

Nasi Lemak

 

Malay food, which is typically found in halal-certified establishments, is characterised by intense flavours and spices that reflect traditional Southeast Asian palates. One can expect the rich sweetness of coconut milk and gula melaka (palm sugar) in desserts, and the spicy zing of sambal (chilli paste) on a plate of Nasi Lemak.

These days, halal restaurants and cafes incorporate culinary influences from around the globe for an array of dining options spanning a spectrum of tastes; these can be found in hawker stalls and halal fine dining restaurants alike. 

 

Halal Certification

Halal Logo

As you roam the streets in Singapore, it won't be long before the seductive aroma of spices leads you to a restaurant or hawker stall with a selection of tempting halal fare. Halal-certified establishments in Singapore can be easily recognised by spotting a certificate awarded by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS). These typically include the authority's distinctive logo, the name of the restaurant or hawker stall, and their address. With this certification, you can be assured that the food has been prepared correctly according to Islamic laws.

While some food outlets and stalls don't have halal certification, they may display a sign indicating ‘no pork, no lard". This does not guarantee that the food is Halal as the preparation process hasn't been checked and regulated. MUIS advises Muslim consumers to be aware of this and exercise caution and discretion before dining at these restaurants.

 

An Array of Flavours

Kampong Glam

 

You don’t have to go far to discover something irresistible to eat in Singapore, but your hunt for the best halal restaurants and treats should begin in Kampong Glam. One of the Lion City’s oldest neighbourhoods, Kampong Glam is a bright and bustling area where tradition and trends blend seamlessly into a feast for all senses. Wander along the brimming streets and soak in the energetic atmosphere as you discover extraordinary mosques, gift shops, and markets selling ornate trinkets and dazzling materials.

As a beloved area for Singapore’s Muslim community, Kampong Glam is a landmark spot for food and drink enthusiasts. Beyond the retail stores and stalls, you will find a plethora of halal-certified restaurants serving an incredible variety of Indian, Indonesian, Turkish, Lebanese, and other cuisines to suit all tastes.

Sip on an espresso or a floral fruit tea as you indulge in a halal breakfast, available throughout the day. Beanstro also serves a wide range of savoury and sweet treats perfect for a halal brunch.
