As Singapore is continuously reducing the spreading of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, gone were the days of choosing the food you want off the counters. But this doesn't mean you can’t still enjoy some good buffet time. Buffet restaurants have changed their way of serving the menu to you. Looking on the bright side, you will be spending more quality time with your family and friends rather than choosing the food off the counter. Also, this could be one way to reduce food wastage as there would be a limit to the number of servings.
From ready-to-eat food to steamboat and grilled meat, we are here to cover Halal Buffets in Singapore. Take your pick, gather your families and friends, and let's start feasting!
Disclaimers: Singapore is currently in Phase 3 of the COVID-19 situation. Some of the activities/places mentioned might be affected in one way or another. Do adhere to all the guidelines when dining in at the eateries. This article is correct at the time of writing.
