There has been an increasing trend in the Food and Beverage industry where vendors, start-ups, and owners are capitalizing on Instagram to reach customers.
It's no different from Singapore’s Halal Food Instagram scene. Home businesses are gaining popularity as an alternative to the usual dining out or hawker centers. Instagram has provided plenty of channels for you to find Halal food in Singapore.
Local home businesses can benefit from the support of their followers, who can enjoy the authentic taste of home-cooked food. It also comes with the convenience of your order being delivered straight to you.
This service is suitable for events, gatherings, and your own glutton pleasure – just be mindful of the limited operating hours.
We summed up the top 4 Instagram Halal food businesses (Muslim-owned or co-owned) that offer delicious delicacies that can satisfy your taste buds and how you can fix orders for your next meal.

Entrepreneur Abdul Rashid Mahmood is the founder of Naughty Boyz, a home-based business taking orders on certain days which began capturing local fans at their stall near local night markets.
What people love about their Mac & Cheese is that it comes in 3 flavors - Salted Egg, Spicy (request hot chili for extra heat), and Original (white cream sauce). They are accompanied by deli meat slices and mushrooms which are perfectly sautéed with a little bit of pepper and salt.
A pro tip - if you want to serve your guests fresh and hot meals from the oven, you may opt for Naughty Boys frozen servings. Their collaboration with the female riders group, StradaBabes, will ensure delivery to anywhere around the island.

This newly established home business is slowly rising its popularity since kicking off its first rice bowl project at the local mosque early this year.
Azman, the owner, mentioned that their customers love the sweet caramelized onions and their ‘Shichimi Togarashi’ which is a unique Japanese chili powder blend - a perfect combination to the pan-grilled beef.
Manzzy’s Beef Bowl comes with Japanese rice priced at $8 and you can opt for an extra $1 for a special onsen egg which is a traditional Japanese low-temperature egg to complement the beef bowl.
Their onsen eggs are cooked to perfection and some fans even described the egg as restaurant quality – a must-try if you haven’t. The self-pick-up option is available if you happen to be nearby Punggol area.
