Rice and its accompaniments are not everyone’s cup of tea, so Singapore’s halal version of Subway might be up your alley if you’re one of them. With tender, juicy meats, it is as good as any Subway!

5) Tang Tea House

It’s hard to come by good Chinese food that is halal, as pork and alcohol play a major role in the cuisine - which is why it is so great that Tang Tea House has chefs that are not only from Shanghai, but are also Muslim! Bask in the glory of not having to worry about whether a morsel of your food is halal or not, and just fill your stomach. Dim sums and chicken dumplings are amongst the signature dishes at this restaurant.
