Every month, The Halal Eater team tries to keep track of every brand new halal eatery in Singapore, so we know how crazy it can be. So just read this list instead. These are the new eatery openings that caught our radar – although keep in mind, for every new place we discover, there are many more that go unnoticed. Be a champ and let us know.
North Bridge Rd: Part steakhouse, part cafe, ASAP & Co is where you go when you are craving for premium smoked meats and all-day brunch. Expect steaks of every cut and size imaginable; buffalo wings; brisket; and sweet treats such as blackout seasalt brownies, and burnt cheesecakes to end the meal on a sweet note. Reservations highly encouraged. 774 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198742
Bras Basah: T Bob’s Corner has opened its doors on Victoria Street (right opposite Bras Basah Complex, serving straightforward American-style steak and a list of other Western fare. The steakhouse, which was previously located in Bedok, was one of the pioneers to offer large Tomahawk steaks and continues to offer it as a must-have till this day. 89 Victoria St #01-01 Singapore 188017
Changi and Ang Mo Kio: Possibly one of the biggest F&B news this month, A&W finally got its halal certification after more than a year since its comeback to Singapore. We can finally dig into the American chain’s classics like coney dogs, curly fries and wash that all down with frosty mugs of root beer floats. 53 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3, B1-47/48 AMK Hub, Singapore 569933 / 78 Airport Boulevard, B2-209 Jewel Changi, Singapore 819666
All outlets: Unlike A&W, Poulet‘s announcement of its halal certification was unexpected. But that did not stop the Internet from buzzing with excitement. The restaurant’s name translates to chicken in French, and their roast chicken is undeniably a showstopper here. But, our Editor is still singing praises of an underrated dish in the menu to this day, so check it out for yourself. Find an outlet here.
North Bridge Road: Hajjah Mariam Cafe, the eatery best known for its Nasi Ambeng, has finally debuted their newest outlet, a two-storey restaurant on North Bridge Road. Here, diners get to experience dining in a kampung setting, either by sitting down on a tikar mengkuang or admiring vintage artefacts tastefully placed throughout the venue. 743 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198711
Yishun and Suntec City: Soufflé pancake Fluffstack also got halal-certified this month.

Don’t forget to Boomerang that jiggle. 1 Northpoint Drive, 02-115, Northpoint City, Singapore 768019 / 3 Temasek Boulevard, B1-K4, Suntec City Mall, Singapore 038983
City Hall: There’s a new buffet destination in town in the form of Buffet Town. Multinational cuisines filled with different teppan and robatayaki, fresh seafood on ice, sushi and sashmi, and local delights dominate the menu here. 252 North Bridge Road, #B1-44E, Raffles City Shopping Centre, Singapore 179103
