One thing I love about our country is the variety of food we can enjoy on this little red dot. Whether we are craving Malay, Indian, Chinese or Eurasian food, we can easily find options in our hood or have them sent to our doorsteps in a few clicks. This includes halal food delivery.
Finding our favourite food in halal form is also getting easier over the years, as more F&B operators recognise the importance of being inclusive in their offerings. So there is little problem rounding up your friends at home for a good meal of roasted chicken, steaks and even desserts that will cater to all preferences and requirements. We suss out 13 halal food spots in Singapore that provide islandwide delivery and pickup for your next stay-home meal.
1. Andes by Astons: sizzling halal steaks and chicken
2. Arnold’s Fried Chicken: Roasting the halal chicken competition
Fun fact: Homegrown Arnold’s Fried Chickenwas the first fast-food brand to get halal certification in 1987. This was even before the famous American chains such as A&W, McDonald’s and KFC received theirs. Over 30 years later, it still serves one of the most delicious crispy birds in Singapore; some would even argue that they are the best. Groups will love the sharing platters such as the Variety Feast ($49.60) for five persons and the 10-Piece Chicken Chest ($33.50). Or mix and match a la carte items such as the Spring Chicken Meal ($15.80) with side dishes such as the Potato Platter ($7.70) and Chicken Popcorn ($5.90). The menu even makes it inclusive for pescatarians with a Fish & Chips ($11.10) option.
3. Butter Studio: Halal cakes, cupcakes and cookies
Looking for Instagram-worthy bakes for a special occasion? Butter Studio is a bakery that’s well known for their array of gorgeous handcrafted cakes. Their short Unicorn (from $88 for a 6-inch cake) or Dino Wonderland (from $88) cake will surely excite all the children at a birthday party. Or you could order a variety of sweet treats such as Nutella S’mores ($3.50 for one) cupcakes and Sea Salt Red Velvet Cookies ($18.80).

12. Yummy Takoyaki: Halal takoyaki, now delivering near you
No prizes for guessing what Yummy Takoyaki sells— Japanese batter balls consisting of pieces of octopus. And not just the ordinary ones too. There are chilli-tuna sprinkled options plus the oozy cheesy Premium Cheese Banjir Dingdong Box ($15). But that’s not all. The East Village takeaway outlet also sells seasoned baby octopus, which is a popular otsumami (snacks typically washed down with alcoholic drinks in an izakaya) in Japan. Get an ordinary platter of five or 10 pieces, or swim in cheese with the Premium Chuka Idako Cheese Banjir Dingdong ($16 for 5 pieces). Then, end off with the indulgently sweet Premium Tako-Tella ($15), stuffed with Nutella and slathered in chocolate and rainbow sprinkles. Because, why not?
