Kudos to the team of local bloggers at halalfoodhunt.com and The Halal Food Blog for coming up with the ultimate list. Recent online spat on the “Non Halal Dendeng” issue that help triggered MUIS to launch an investigation – this ultimate list comes handy.
SHARE THIS ENTIRE ARTICLE INSTEAD.
Reason: We expect stalls to be writing to us to clarify on their halal status, so this list will be updated from time to time.
Why are some of the stalls are left out from this list? Mainly because the conversation went like this:-
Me: ABANG, kita nak tulis article untuk tempat halal di sini. Kedai abang halal tak? (We want to write an article about halal places here. Is your stall halal?)
Me: Kedai ni abang punye ke? (Is this your shop?)
Me: Oh tak eh. ok. Boss mana? Orang muslim ke?(Oh, it is not yours. Who’s the boss? Is he muslim?)
Guy: Oh tak. Boss Cina. (Oh. no, my boss is Chinese (non-muslim implied))
Me: Jadi macam mana abang tahu makanan ni halal eh?
(So how you know the food you sell is halal?)
Guy: Boss cakap. (My boss said so)
Me: Abang tahu check tak? (Do you know how to check?)
Guy: Tak. (No.)
Me: Ok. So. Abang boleh sign kan cakap kedai ni halal? (Ok, so do you think you can sign on my paper to say that this shop is halal?)
Guy: Abang tak boleh subahat dek. Takpe lah. Tak nak sign.
(I can’t sign your paper. I don’t want to be complicit to this. Nevermind. Don’t include us in this article) *proceeds to ask the muslim lady next to me if she wants to buy food*
– awkward silence –
Also, not to mention that there are stalls with tudung-clad ladies who were selling food. They didn’t look local, so I talked to them in English, and then switched to Malay, and then switched to Chinese to ask if the food was halal. They understood my question, but then proceeded to look at each other, and eventually decided not to answer me. That and also, some of the stalls were not in operation yet and we couldn’t find the staff to talk to.
Disclaimer: We ignored stalls that have a low halal risk for example, your fresh sugar cane juice or canned beverage stalls.
So here goes:

From halalfoodhunt.com author:
Thank you! Here’s our note to our readers:- We have decided to remove the list of stalls which do not meet our halal classification as described in this article as there have been some irresponsible sharing of this information on Whatsapp and Facebook Groups. Our list and our words have been mutilated and spread around. We do not condone irresponsible sharing of information without the accompanying knowledge that enriches the reader. Should you find a stall that is not included in the above verified list, it is because they have halal risk factors as we have discussed above. So, please verify with the stall yourselves before deciding to purchase from them. Halal is everyone’s personal responsibility.
Upated 28th May. This list will be updated from time to time.
If you are a stall owner and would like to clarify your halal status with us, or find the above lists inaccurate, please email us at [email protected], and we will respond as soon as possible. We will not be replying texts and WhatsApp messages for this matter.

Listed below are stalls which are not Muslim-Owned and not Halal Certified or meet halal risks as described above. I also want to add a note of caution for stallls with no name, as these stalls are often not held accountable for the halal status of the food that they sell. We caution our muslim brothers and sisters before the purchasing food, as some of these stalls which do not meet our halal classificiation have been featured in other halal (and travel) publications we know locally. Loco Loco | The Raclette Factory | Alley SG | Mr Q | Tulou tofu fries chicken Wings n Drinks | Regals Signature delight | Wal Rainbow Tamago | Thai Cha Chak Thai Milk Tea | Bangkok Cafe Thai Custard Toasted Burns | Fried Chicken King | Milk Bites | Power Chicken | Mr Stingray Hotplates BBQ | Lost Unicorn Tears | Takoyaki Twister Potatoes & Sharks Fin | Cake Pop Korean Chicken | Cheese Bomber Oyster | Viet Chendol | Kala Thai | Happy Rollies | Cheese Bomber Oyster | Alley | Oyster Gangster | Infood SG | Kerri’s Poke Bowls | the Icy Paradise | JC Creative Food Durian Bombs | Fairy Floss | Azalea Thai Sweet Treats | Stop & Go | WaanCha Thai Milk Tea | Take a bite twister Potatoes | Hao Rian Popcorn Chicken | Tsingho | Mama Coconue | Sweet Freez
So now you know.
So now that you know, you can make your own decisions on whether or not you would like to purchase from any of the stalls in the bazaar. If the stalls don’t meet our halal classification, but you are fine with it, go ahead and purchase with a clear conscience. We understand that halal tolerance varies from one Muslim to another so no one’s judging!
Be safe, stay safe, and make wise choices about the food you consume, okay? Selamat berpuasa!
