For food that comforts your tummy and soul

For many if not all of us, this coming Ramadan will be a very different one due to Singapore's circuit breaker measures ongoing through June 1. Extended families won't be able to gather together to buka puasa, not to mention not being able to go visiting during Hari Raya.

Still, we have our immediate households to observe the holy month together with and to break fast with every evening. If you're looking for solid halal food delivery options this Ramadan, here are some places that won't disappoint.
 

Badoque Cafe


This Simpang Bedok gem is offering everything from their signature beef ribs ($42/800g) glazed in homemade barbeque sauce to vongole pastas ($18) and their Mediterranean meats available for delivery. Portions are generous, so you know you're in good hands with every order. Islandwide delivery fee ranges from $6-12.
 

Chix Hot Chicken


The halal-friendly Nashville fried chicken joint co-owned by Singapore Idol’s very own Taufik Batisah is just the place to go for good ol' hot chicken. We simply can't get enough of their dry rub hot wings ($9.90/3pcs) done to your preferred level of spiciness—mild, medium, hot or insane. Pair 'em with cheese fries ($4.50) and creamy milkshakes ($8.90) and Bob's your uncle. Delivery fee starts from $5.
 

Chopsticks


If you're hankering for noodles, look no further. New online-only halal restaurant Chopsticks offers noodle dishes of all kinds, from trendy fusion pasta dishes to comforting hot bowls of laksa ($18). Personally, we have our eyes set on the mutton mee goreng mamak ($13)—the wok hei just can't be beat. There is a flat islandwide delivery fee of $15, but if you manage to hit more than $60 in orders and pay with Mastercard, it'll be waived.
 

Goshin Ramen


Halal Japanese cuisine may not be easy to find here, but Goshin does a fine job delivering items like nasi lemak sushi ($14.80), all sorts of delectable ramen (from $11.90) and even sashimi ($6.60 for five slices of salmon) to your doorstep. Be sure to give their Goshin Tahu Telor ($11.80) a try. Delivery fee is $4.99 with a minimum order of $40.
 

Hjh Maimunah


The famed nasi padang restaurant is offering takeaways and islandwide delivery from their Joo Chiat outlet this Ramadan. You can even choose to order their tingkat sets on a weekly ($100/week for two persons) or monthly basis (the menu changes daily) too, so you don't ever need to think about what to get. As long as we are able to try their begedil and beef rendang, we're happy. Delivery fee starts from $5.
 

Saltwater


You can't go wrong with this Changi Village neighborhood stalwart. Choose from five different rice sets—like Ayam & Ikan Nasi Padang, Nasi Lemak & Beef Rendang or Ayam Penyet & Tauhu Goreng—that caters to groups of four. Each set costs $56 and is inclusive of free porridge and dates. You can even choose to mix and match your own set, if you wish. Get free islandwide delivery for $80 spend and above using Mastercard.
 

Straits Cafe


Nasi Dulang sets ($58, inclusive of bubur lambuk and kurma ajwa) good for four to share as well as Nasi Sulang sets ($15) for one are available. We're definitely eyeing the nasi goreng kampung with fried prawn paste chicken, sayur goreng, egg fu yong and achar, but if you don't see any set you fancy, feel free to build your own too. There's free islandwide delivery upon spend of $80 or more using Mastercard.
 

The Dim Sum Place


Halal dim sum spots are uncommon; ones that serve feast-worthy fare (as The Dim Sum Place does) are even more so. Tuck into bite-sized mouth watering delights like siew mai, lava salted egg custard bun and har gow ($5.90 per dish), freshly delivered to you islandwide. Get free delivery if you spend a minimum of $50.
 

Tiffany Cafe & Restaurant


Let your taste buds travel around the world with Tiffany's Ramadan specials. There's Thai, Malaysian and Mediterranean on the menu, featuring items like mapo tofu, seafood mee goreng, salted egg chicken and more in each family set ($38-78) that caters to groups of two to six people. There's free islandwide delivery for orders of at least $50.
