Ramadan is a time for all Muslims to reflect deeply, connect more spiritually and gather with family. Fasting is a huge part of it — but when the sun goes down, it’s time to reward yourself and celebrate.
After a long day of fasting, gather around the table with your loved ones and indulge in a well-deserved meal. The amazing thing about Singapore is its diverse food scene: whether its Japanese, Western, Vietnamese, Thai cuisine you’re craving, there’s always a café that hits the spot. From North, South, East, West to Town area, we’ve got you covered!

You wouldn’t need to fly all the way to Hanoi to satisfy your Vietnamese cuisine cravings and find an eatery that is Halal-certified at that. Here we have So Pho, one of the few Halal Vietnamese eateries in Singapore and their food really hits the spot.
Try their Vietnamese rolls as starter and continue the feast with a piping hot bowl of Pho Noodle King, with a cup of authentic Vietnamese coffee to boot. So delicious.

This charming cafe-boutique reminds me of a breezy, afternoon in Paris. Best of all? It’s Halal-certified and Muslim-owned!

9. Muk-Bang Korean Restaurant
This Halal restaurant is my personal go-to if I’m in the mood for Korean. Bibimbap, Saba fish and Beef short-ribs (saeng galbisal) are some of the popular favourites here. On rainy days, their spicy bowl of Ramyeon really hits the spot! If you are coming in a group, try their sharing platters such as budae jjigae (piping hot army stew), and dakgalbi stir-fried spicy chicken. My mouth is watering already.

Tucked away in a corner at Downtown East, Mukshidonna actually originates from Myeongdong, Seoul. There are a variety of customisable stews here, and you can expect boiling pots of flavourful broth served on a gas stove. The army stew comes with an array of ingredients like baked beans, chicken luncheon meat, straw mushrooms and instant noodles. For some appetizers to share with your makan kakis, be sure to try Korean’s all-time favourite snacks, the Haemul Pajeon or Kimchi Jeon.

11. The Co-Op
Nothing can beat tender, juicy steak imo, and just the thought of it has got me salivating a little. The Co-Op is one of my personal favorites to grab steaks, tacos, succulent burgers, pasta, among other things. Try their Ribeye Steak or juicy New York Strip Steaks. For a more unique burst of flavour, opt for their sambal or teriyaki sauces!

12. Chice Chickata Makan Place
This makan place has been serving Thai-style BBQ with marinated meats, seafood, and homemade chilli sauces since 2016. It’s also my go-to when I have the craving for mookata. Cheese lovers will be thrilled to know that they have cheese dip options that pair oh-so-well with their beef or chicken.
If it’s your first time and you are unsure of what to order, go for their recommended picks: the tom yum chicken, black pepper lamb and sliced smoked duck. A disclaimer though: this eatery is situated literally under a void deck, but their delicious food and attentive staff will make your Halal mookata experience a great one.

We’re so happy to see more and more F&B establishments going Halal for our Muslim friends! Monster Planet’s one of them — and yes, you’ve got that right — it’s a Halal spin-off from their existing brand Monster Curry.
Their Monster Combo Curry comes with four different types of meats — chicken, beef, shrimp and fish. As their portions are, like their name, monstrously huge, it’s best shared between three, or a starving two.
