Singapore is a crossroads of sorts, and its citizens come from all cultures and all walks of life. There is a sizeable population of Muslims in Singapore, which requires their food to be halal. Singapore is so halal-friendly that even a bunch of street food hawkers offer halal options.
What is halal? It is a word that means “allowed” or “lawful,” and it applies to certain Muslim things, specifically food. Muslims in Singapore need not worry, for anywhere they turn, there is a halal-certified restaurant or cafe for them. One such example is the Jewel Changi Airport halal food. Being an airport, it has many popular food chains such as Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts, KFC, and Subway, and all these restaurants are halal-friendly. Out of over a hundred food shops at the Jewel Changi Airport, there is an impressive selection of halal restaurants to choose from. Aside from the four popular restaurants, Jewel Changi Airport halal food can also be experienced at thirteen other restaurants.
