The Thousand Faces of Halal Dining

Eid al-Fitr is approaching, and local restaurants specializing in Halal cuisine are making moves one after another. Singapore is a melting pot of international cuisines, and industry players are optimistic about the unlimited potential of this market. Halal food is becoming more and more exciting, not limited to Malay, but also Western, Japanese, Nanyang and Mediterranean. The presentation methods also range from fast food, buffet, snacks to exquisite cuisine, and compatriots of all ethnic groups can feast together.

The reporter also thought that Malay compatriots only accounted for 15% of the total population of Singapore, and the territory of halal food and drink was relatively small. After interviewing several industry players who have entered this field, it turns out that they have a more open and inclusive attitude and world view, and they see a greater room for development behind them.
