The Ultimate Guide to Halal Food Delivery For Buka Puasa 2020

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Singapore is from 23 April to 23 May 2020.

However, this year’s Ramadan will be a little different for many Muslims due to the extension of Circuit Breaker until 1 June.

Unfortunately, extended families will not be able to gather for buka puasa (Malay for breaking fast) and you won’t be able to visit each other during Hari Raya.

However, all is not lost.

You still have your immediate family to break fast with and observe the holy month together.

When Time is Break Fast Time in Singapore?

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims in Singapore and all around the world will buka puasa two times a day.

  1. Sehri, the morning meal eaten by Muslims before the sun has come up during Ramadan. This will usually happen before 6 am.
  2. Iftar, the evening meal eaten by Muslims after the sun has gone down during Ramadan. This will usually happen after 7 pm.

For the exact timing, you can check out this tool from Hamari Web which will tell you the time for Sehri and Iftar in Singapore.

1) Badoque Cafe – Greece

We will start things off with a trip to the Mediterranean with Badoque Cafe, a restaurant that serves up Greek, Mediterranean and Asian Fusion fare from Simpang Bedok.

You will have to try their signature 800g New Zealand Whole Bone Beef Ribs ($42), their Beef Goreng pasta ($18) and their Mediterranean meats which are all available for islandwide delivery.

2) Chix Hot Chicken – Nashville, America

Remember Singapore Idol Taufik Batisah?

I remember listening and being inspired by his song I Dream, which he sang 16 years ago at the finals of Singapore Idol.

These days he is busy with Chix Hot Chicken, a halal-friendly Nashville Hot Fried Chicken restaurant that he co-owns.

While the man does not cook the delicious food there, he actually helped design the toilet and did some handiwork for the shop!

You will have to try their dry rub hot wings ($9.90/3pcs) done to your preferred level of spiciness—mild, medium, hot or insane. Insane is really crazy as they use Carolina Reaper’s chilli as an ingredient.

If it gets too hot you can defuse the heat with creamy milkshakes ($8.90) and cheese fries ($4.50) for an indulgent meal

As much as it troublesome to peel, I like eating big tiger prawns which is why their Daikairo Ramen ($16.80) caught my attention.

They also have other varieties of Ramen like the Ramen Rebus ($14.80) a Japanese take on the local dish.

For their donburis the one I would like to highlight is their Nasi Lemak Donburi ($14.80).

4) Nasi Ambeng Nenek Leng – Indonesia

There’s just something about sharing food that warms the soul and there’s no better dish for sharing than Nasi Ambeng.

For those who are unfamiliar, it is a Javanese dish that is typically eaten as a celebratory meal during ceremonies.

A selection of dishes like beef rendang, curry chicken, sotong paru, sambal goreng, begedil, winged beans, beef lungs, achar are served on a large dulang (Malay for tray) is accompanied by a generous serving of coconut rice.

Finding good Nasi Ambeng is hard and finding an affordable one is harder.

I chose Nasi Ambeng Nenek Leng as it is one of the more value for money options out there.

The story behind it is also great. The stall is named after the owner’s late grandmother who passed down the recipes to him.

Their looks delicious and they have reviews on their social media who praise them for their generous portions and rich flavourful food made with love.

I like that they keep it simple as there are only two dishes on the menu namely their Ambeng and Rawon.

The owner is a Chinese Muslim from China that has opened two Yi Zun outlets in Singapore one in Joo Chiat and one in Farrer Park.
