The Finest Halal Cafes in Singapore

Singapore is home to a rich and thriving Muslim community, and its good influence on the overall population of Singapore is quite obvious. One well-known fact about Islam is that Muslim followers must ensure that any meat they consume is considered halal. Luckily, Muslim families and other locals have taken it upon themselves to increase the inclusivity of this wonderful island, establishing eateries that are 100% Halal.

But wait, what is considered halal?

Halal is Arabic for the word “permissible”, meaning that the religion allows the consumption of a certain dish. This certification of sorts is accompanied by a long list of guidelines outlined by the United Nations that are to be followed before certification is given. Often concerned with the process of butchering meat, the guidelines state that the chosen lawful animal must be prayed over before the butchering begins. This makes the process rather lengthy and strict, but all with respect to Islamic beliefs.

Because of the extra care put into their food, it’s important that we outline the Singaporean cafes that took the time to create meals that are not only halal but also very delicious.

What is a cafe without coffee? I don’t know, and I don’t think I would ever want to know. The reason that the State of Affairs finds itself on this list is that it takes its coffee very seriously. Nestled in a little industrial cubby, this coffee shop invites its customers to take a seat and slow down for a moment to enjoy their house blend. This Muslim-owned coffee shop roasts its own blend of beans day in and day out, resulting in a coffee blend that is uniquely theirs.

Although the State of Affairs prides itself on its coffee, the cafe also serves Halal entrees to accompany its warm java. From pasta to croquettes, this cafe’s savory selection of meals is perfect for the Singaporean looking for a chance to hide away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, even just for a moment. When you do find yourself in-store, make sure to try their affairs of the cup espresso shot to get a coffee that is uniquely theirs. If coffee isn’t your thing, then maybe their selection of teas would fit you best instead.

Being a halal cafe doesn’t always mean that you serve meat, sometimes it just means that your coffee is free from any unlawful ingredients. Kohi’s Roastery and Coffe Bar is a small hole-in-the-wall Thailand coffee chain that has found its way to Singapore. This coffee bar makes sure to avoid any unlawful alcoholic additives to their coffee, making the coffee completely halal and easy to enjoy by Muslims and non-muslims alike.

Its bright yellow panels are as bright as the flavor profiles themselves, often choosing to mix their coffee with ingredients such as tonic water or coconut to bring out the natural fruity notes of coffee. This cafe does not have a dining option, instead encouraging you to grab your coffee to go or hang out with friends around the main serving window. If you’re looking for a tasty drink with friends or simply just looking for that drive-by coffee buzz, then Kohi is the cafe for you.

Get your ooey gooey cheese cravings satisfied when you visit the newly-opened Missus cafe in Singapore! This Muslim-owned cafe gives you a halal-certified dining experience that is as refreshing as the atmosphere in the cafe itself. This is a great place to bring your friends for a hearty halal meal or even just to talk amongst yourselves. Missus also offers the takeaway option in case you want to bring a box of sweet or savory dishes home with you.

The star of their menu has to be their selection of grilled cheeses, my favorite being the classic Missus Melt. The Missus Melt consists of 4 kinds of cheese and a truffle paté that packs a flavorful punch in each bite, accompanied by grilled cheese’s other half: the tomato soup. If you aren’t in the mood for a savory treat, then a serving of their homemade churros or french toast might do the trick! Either way, eating at Missus will be an experience that you and your taste buds may never forget.

When I think of a cafe, I immediately think of the relaxing and calm vibes that it brings. A cafe should aim to give its customers a relaxing dining experience, and Steep has perfected this. Steep is a Muslim-owned minimalist cafe that opened in mid-2022 with the sole goal of providing a warm and inviting environment for its customers.

Steep offers a wide variety of dishes for both brunch and dinner, and thankfully all of them are halal. One of the dishes that caught my attention was their colorful Fish Problems dinner entree, putting their own twist on fish & chips. Not only does their rendition of Fish & chips look absolutely beautiful, but it also uses locally-sourced ingredients for sauces that are made from scratch in-house. If the home is where the heart is, then Steep is definitely home.

La Fez Bakery

PriceS$20 – S$35

Address907 East Coast Road, #01-03A, Singapore, Singapore
Websitehttps://wearelafez.com/

Immerse yourself in the Moroccan culinary world through this wonderful Muslim-owned cafe. La Fez Bakery is a colorful cafe and bakery that takes all the colorful aesthetics and flavors of Morocco and introduces them to Singapore. Pink walls and cutlery lined with gold all give this cafe a refreshing feel.

Not many restaurants serve Moroccan cuisine quite like La Fez. La Fez’s specialty lies in its lamb dishes, particularly the Tagine and the Green Harissa Lamb Shank. The lamb tagine consists of lamb meat that has been stewed in the cafe’s signature spice mixture, creating a pungent and impactful flavor profile that is immediately cut by the sweet tartness of apricots. If this meal may be too filling for you, then I suggest trying out one of their colorful tea time towers that are decked with treats.

Taste the flavors of Japan through this small bakery! Being a Muslim-owned and Japanese-inspired bakery in Singapore, Gamo deliciously serves up examples of just how culturally diverse Singapore can be. From croissants to matcha cakes, this shop serves dishes with flavors that are light and refreshing, much like the shop’s interior itself. The interior design of this cafe takes inspiration from Japanese minimalist design, making this cafe a cozy hangout spot.

This cafe’s breakout dish is a viennoiserie called the “Croon”, which are circular croissants topped and filled with flavors such as kaya toast and black sesame. These croons provide all the flaky buttery goodness that normal croissants offer, but double the amount of crunchy filo exposed. These croons are only available on the weekends, so make sure you drop by so you can taste this iconic viral dish. If your sweet tooth is taking a backseat, feel free to try one of their many savory croissants as well! A standout pic for me would be their crab stick salad croissants, creamy and mixed with sweet bits of corn.
