The best halal restaurants and iftar buffets in Singapore to break your fast this Ramadan (Updated 2023)


17.7 min read

From 23 Mar to 21 Apr 2023, Muslims in Singapore will be observing Ramadan. This holy month is more than just fasting and abstaining from food and drink as Muslims will also engage in charity, practise compassion and spend time to self-reflect and repent through religious practices.

Fasting is an important part of Ramadan and iftar (breaking the fast) is a special time that’s usually spent in the company of family or friends to foster gratitude and the spirit of community. We hope that our top halal restaurant and buffet recommendations will make your iftar experience an even more blessed one. 🤩

Top halal restaurants & cafes in Singapore

01 • Wakuwaku Yakiniku

Tucked amidst hip cafes and eateries in Bali Lane is Wakuwaku Yakiniku, Singapore’s first-ever halal yakiniku restaurant. There’s so much to try out here, but if you’re not sure of where to start, we suggest that you give their popular Beef Platter which consists of different cuts of meat a try first. 

Once you’re feeling more ready to go all out, go ahead and order from their comprehensive menu of close to 50 different dishes. Some of their superhit picks are Jo Leek Tongue (a dish made from grilled beef tongue) and Beef Tongue Curry Don. You’ll also be able to order seafood, lamb and chicken options as well.

Who’s itching for yummy banh mi that’s also kind on the wallet? We sure are. 😋

Run by a couple that’s known for selling top-notch otah in the past, it’s not a surprise that their Mackerel Otah is their main pride. All their banh mi options come with generous amounts of stuffings, so these would surely make for a filling dinner.

One of their other popular options is the Battered Crispy Fish Fillet with Honey Mustard Sauce which will take you to food heaven, especially when washed down by their signature Iced Drip Vietnamese Coffee.

Tip: During Ramadan, simply order your meals ahead of time and pick up before the restaurant closes to enjoy them in the comfort of your home.

More cheap eats? Yes, please! Local legend has it that the bakso (Indonesian meatballs in soup) and chicken bakmie here are to die for. For those who prefer levelling up on the spiciness, check out their Bakmie Ayam Cabe Ijo (Green Chilli Chicken Noodle). They also sell fluffy and spongy martabak just the way it’s made in Indonesia and it’s honestly one of the best we’ve had in Singapore.

Whether you have a sweet tooth or love sinking your teeth into something savoury, Alley.Wei is the place to satisfy your unshakeable Taiwanese food cravings. It would be a sin to not order their bestselling silken soya beancurd which must serve as a dip for the perfectly-fried golden and crispy youtiao. Some of us have even tried breaking the youtiao into pieces and soaking them in the beancurd — it was pure bliss.

Other crowd-pullers are the scallion pancake, steamed pau and beef noodles. 🤩

Brio is one of those Western food places that’ll truly satiate your appetite and still keep you coming back for more — and it’s not surprising because they pull out all the stops and make sure you get only the best. For instance, their 36-hour Oxtail Bourguignonne stew is so well-cooked and seasoned that it’ll just make you melt in joy. If seafood is your thing, the cute Clam Pot dish will definitely hit all the spots. And since no meal is complete without a dessert, be sure to indulge in the richness of their Chocolate Lava Cake which oozes out a good amount of chocolatey goo. 🤤
