Halal Hawker Food
While there’s truly no lack of options when it comes to delicious eats in Singapore, halal alternatives to international cuisine can be far and few. We’ve sussed out six stalls that serve satisfying halal-certified versions of Korean, Thai, Japanese, and Western food. If you prefer cooking up a storm at home, we’ve also got easy-to-follow recipes for you to bookmark:
1. Sedap Thai, Berseh Food Centre

Rainy days call for a sizzling hot Thai mookata-style steamboat dinner at Sedap Thai, a halal-certified stall that uses beef fat to grease the grill in place of lard. Savour the popular platter sets, which come with a selection of chicken, lamb, and beef, as well as seafood and vegetables. The best part about cooking on a dome-shaped grill is having the juices from the grilled meats trickle down into your soup base for extra flavour!
Recipe idea: Bring home the taste of Thailand with this Jeh O Chula Tom Yum Mama recipe, a comforting hot pot dish featuring rich and creamy tom yum soup base. Replace pork with beef or chicken slices for an equally delicious meal.
#01-08, Berseh Food Centre, 166 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208877
Opens Monday to Saturday, 4.30pm to 9.30pm
2. Big Bowls Project, Amoy Street Food CentreImage Credit: @bigbowlsproj
If you love the variety of grain bowls, then Big Bowls Project will be right up your alley. The Muslim-owned hawker stall offers halal Japanese-style bowls featuring salmon and mentaiko (pollock roe), along with sides like onsen egg, corn, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and vegetables. The rice bowls also come in interesting flavours including Szechuan black bean and tom yum.
Recipe idea: If you’ve got an airfryer at home, why not make your own yakitori? Well-marinated and tender, these juicy chunks of chicken are great for topping over rice for your grain bowl.

The former is a thin-crust pizza topped with Greek marinated chicken slices, roasted butternut chunks, and more.
Recipe idea: For a quick and satisfying snack, try making this Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich—featured in The Bear, an American comedy-drama television series. Made with sirloin steak and a variety of herbs and spices, this juicy sandwich is a must-try.
