Halal Food Guide

With such a huge variety of food available in Singapore, Halal food is never far away. Singapore Halal Certification is a system of Halal regulation that's widely recognised both in Singapore and throughout the South East Asia region.  

 

Halal Logo

The distinctive logo can be seen on the certificates displayed at Halal-certified restaurants and food outlets, and is awarded by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS). However, before dining it's best to check that the certificate is current and accurately states the restaurant's name and address. 

Some food outlets and stalls don't have Halal certification, but they may bear a sign that reads ‘no pork, no lard.’ As this isn't a certification, it doesn't necessarily mean that the food is Halal as the process hasn't been checked and regulated. MUIS advises Muslim consumers to be aware of this and exercise caution and discretion with the ‘no pork, no lard’ claims.

 

Burgers

 

You'll find many Halal-certified Indian, Indonesian and Middle Eastern restaurants in Singapore. The Kampong Glam area is a great place to start hunting for mouth-watering Halal food, with an incredible variety of Turkish, Lebanese, Western and other cuisines. While you're there, take some time to wander around the historic district's colourful lanes and bustling alleys.

Singapore's Halal-certified fast food chains include McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Burger King. Most food courts in Singapore have at least one Halal-certified stall. These stalls often serve Malay cuisine, though you can sometimes find others with a broader offering.

If you're staying at Marina Bay Sands, or out for a family day at Gardens by the Bay, drop by The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands for dining options that are sure to leave the entire family satisfied. Delight the little ones at the DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe, where they'll get to meet their heroes while chowing down on burgers, pastas, and shakes - all served in colourful, superhero-themed tableware. Besides grabbing a quick photo with Batman, deck the family out in matching outfits - the cafe also stocks popular DC merchandise, from apparel and accessories, to gifts and collectibles.

For a truly unique dining experience, head down to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Beanstro, located next to the Rain Oculus, an art installation that sends rainwater two storeys down into the canal. Sip on coffee as you admire the whirlpool swirling above, or tuck into an all-day breakfast set as sampans parade by along the canal. Beanstro serves a wide range of savory and sweet meal options, from scrumptious pastas and burgers, to mouth-watering cakes and crossiants - find a perfect meal for any time of the day.

Craving for Swedish food? Head to Fika Swedish Café, which is something of an institution in Singapore for being the only Swedish Halal restaurant in the country. The restaurant serves breakfast, sandwiches, mains, soups and salads – not to mention a delectable array of desserts!

If you’re in the east, make your way to the Simpang Bedok food centre. Long popular with locals, the outlets here are modelled after traditional shophouses, and feature a variety of yummy Halal delights. Try Spize, a late-night dining spot that serves Western fare. Tang Tea House and Enak Enak are the places to go to for your Halal dim sum fix.

 

Beanstro Halal Pasta

Another great place to go is Seoul Garden, a Halal-certified Korean barbeque restaurant. While some outlets are à la carte, at the buffet outlets you can order meats to grill right at your table – an enjoyable way to share a memorable meal. Buffet lovers can also head to Sakura International Buffet Restaurant, which offers cuisines from Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, France, Italy, and the United States. Another popular buffet restaurant is 1Market by Chef Wan, the famous Malaysian television chef. 

And if you're a guest of Marina Bay Sands, and feel like staying near your hotel, check out the Halal dining options available just a few steps away.

 

For your convenience, MUIS recommends visiting The Singapore Halal Directory for the latest information on Halal-certified premises. iPhone users can also download the free SG Halal app, which lets you search for Halal-certified outlets by name, cuisine type, location, proximity, and more.
