13 Halal Food Places In PLQ Anyone Should Know About

Salam! This is an updated version of the article as of 18 February 2021. 

The new Paya Lebar Quarter has been open for awhile now and it's definitely a crowd's favorite to spend some leisure time during the evenings. Located conveniently next to the Paya Lebar MRT station, Paya Lebar Quarter sets to be the next business and lifestyle hub.

Adding up to the food eateries available in any other malls in Paya Lebar, I am sure there will be more options to dine in. Take your pick and let's explore the Halal food eateries in the new Paya Lebar Quarter Mall.

Drop by PLQ's neighbours! Here's Our Top 7 Halal Food Recommendations You Need To Try At Least Once At Paya Lebar Square & SingPost

1. Papa Ayam (Newly added to the list!)

Serving up steamy hot Indonesian dishes (of the spicy kind) is Papa Ayam! Known as the first Ayam Geprek brand in Singapore, Papa Ayam is the place to go if you want somewhere with a chill vibe in PLQ. The stall prepares freshly made sambal for each order, and you can choose your own spiciness level (Level 1 to Level 15).

And if Level 15 sounds like chicken feet, boy do they have a challenge for you! Finish an upsized portion of Level 27 in under 5 minutes to get your meal for free and earn yourself a slot on their wall of fame.

2. Poke Theory (Newly added to the list!)

A feast for the eyes and the belly, grab a delicious and nutritious meal all in one bowl at Poke Theory. Muslim Poke fans may have heard of this place before, but not many know that they sneakily opened up an outlet at PLQ recently. Though the outlet is technically at PLQ 2, the residential area of the PLQ buildings, it’s barely a distance away from PLQ mall itself and totally worth the detour if you ask us!

Halal Status: The PLQ outlet has clarified that they are still awaiting halal certification. However, other Poke Theory outlets are MUIS Halal-certified. Dine at your own discretion.

3. Tuk Tuk Cha (Newly added to the list!)

Located at the open area just outside of PLQ Mall, Tuk Tuk Cha is a Halal fuss-free casual Thai café, serving authentic Halal Thai food, beverages, and desserts to top them all off. When you're at the PLQ outlet, you need to try their Rise and Shine Breakfast Toast. Inspired by the iconic Thai dishes like the Green Curry, Pad Thai, and Tom Yum Prawn, the Rise and Shine Breakfast is a twist on your basic sandwich with an added Thai touch. Think about savoury butter toast, sunny side up, spicy and sweet Thai Sauce! 

Available all day and complement your meal with a Tuk Tuk Cha hot beverage at $6.50.

We know a good popcorn when we see one. We think you can say goodbye to your traditional movie popcorns because these ones, once you start munching on one, you will not stop. Each corn is fresh (like honestly, how is this possible?) and evenly coated with the beautiful flavoring, it's literally a treat. Don't get us started on the flavors, they're endless!

Halal Status: Halal-certified; all of their popcorn is certified Halal, except for their new flavors – Roselle and Chilli Crab, which are still in the process of obtaining Halal certification.
