J’s Restaurant

Latin American restaurants are a dime a dozen in Singapore, but to find one that’s halal certified is almost impossible.

The best part is the fact that they’ve also got delicious fruit-based mocktails. Book now!

The contemporary marketplace setting is ultra cozy, even for large groups, while the open kitchens dish out piping hot plates of food. There’s a huge spread of local favorites like satay, beef rendang and chicken rice, or go for something spicy from the tandoor.
