Ramadan 2021: Break Fast at These Halal Restaurants in Singapore
Have a delectable iftar meal at these dining places, serving Ramadan set menus and à la carte buffet spreads
Unlike last year’s iftar feast which was confined in the comfort of our homes, the upcoming feast will be a merrier celebration as we’re allowed to dine out with family and friends—given that we adhere to the strict Covid-19 protocols implemented by the government. And, of course, the chefs are enticing us with a bevy of delicious Ramadan dinner sets (for dine-in and delivery) and extensive buffet spreads, served to your table à la carte style.
A feast awaits those who are planning to break their fast at Carousel, as the culinary team has prepared over 100 delectable dishes, served à la carte buffet style. Signatures are naturally included in the spread, so you can happily tuck into the deliciously rich beef rendang, addictive deep-fried turmeric chicken and fiery sambal goreng.
And if these aren’t enough to whet the palate, how about going for local hot favourites including the gado gado salad drenched in a nutty sauce, as well as tender chunks of slightly charred chicken and mutton satay? Finish off with bandung ice-cream or the freshly prepared pandan waffle, created just for the Ramadan menu. Available from April 12 to May 12. Book here.
Sambal goreng krecek
Sate kambing batawi
Semur jawa daging
Just as the restaurant’s name implies in the Indonesian language, you’re welcome to break fast here with the Ramadan Special Menu. It consists of hearty favourites from Central Java—the likes of bakwan udang (pan-fried Indonesian fritter), opor ayam (braised chicken thigh curry) and semur jawa daging (beef stew cooked with fresh tomatoes, shallots, garlic, red chilli and sweet soy sauce).
Wash these down with curated mocktails. The fizzy Asam Spritz refreshes the palate with a mix of tamarind, Marquisa syrup, pineapple juice, Sprite Lemonade and lime citrus, while the Rosie’s Sangria comprising juicy strawberries and pisang susu (banana milk) syrup provides a sweet finish. Available from April 13 to May 16. Book here.
Prefer to break your fast at home? The hotel restaurant is offering the Ramadan Platter for takeaway. Ideal for two people is the Nasi Ambang set, which comes with sambal long beans, mutton rendang, sotong bakar and pisang pengat.
But if you want to dine at the restaurant, you’ll be welcomed with a repertoire that features perennial favourites such as beef rendang, gado-gado, ayam masak merah as well as Korean fare. So, dig into the finest delights including beef bulgogi, kimchi fried rice and squid cooked in tteokbokki sauce. Available from April 12 to May 16. Book here.
Gather your family for a delicious iftar feast at Hilton Singapore’s iftar pop-up buffet. The chefs have prepared quite an extensive spread which consists of appetisers, timeless home-cooked dishes and local favourites, among others.
You can start light by going for starters like Singapore popiah, mango salad and prawns or Singapore rojak. But if you want to dig in straight away to the classics, do so with the spiced beef rendang enriched with sambal chilli lala and petai or the equally pleasing Moroccan spicy chermoula baked sea bass. There is even a carving trolley where you can ask for unlimited servings of the beautifully cooked whole roasted Australian beef sirloin bathed in natural jus, and accompanied by roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables. Available from April 19 to May 19. Book here.
Kintamani Indonesian Restaurant
Here’s another restaurant to consider if you’re undecided on where to bring your family for an iftar meal, served as an à la carte buffet. You won’t be disappointed thanks to the repertoire of authentic Indonesian dishes the chefs have prepared—think fork-tender beef chunks simmered in coconut spices; baked chicken coated in a fiery green chilli concoction; and cereal butter prawns that are deep-fried for a crunchy finish.
Meat lovers will be glad to know there’s also a carvery station here, and the spotlight is on the roasted leg of lamb served with the chef’s special sauce. Available from April 12 to May 16. Book here.
