One of the perks of living in multi-cultural Singapore is none other than being able to indulge in a myriad of distinct cuisines.
What’s more, with the growing abundance of Halal-Chinese eateries gracing our food scene, our Muslim pals can now expand their palates and enjoy the best of both worlds while reveling in authentic Chinese cuisine. One such Halal-certified, Chinese establishment is Xiaoer Niuda, a traditional beef la mian restaurant nestled in the heart of JEM.
La Mian — known as “hand-pulled” noodles — originates from Lanzhou, China. Xiaoer Niuda has brought that fusion culture over to our local shores, specialising in handmade, halal la mian topped with morsels of savoury beef.
There is no question that Singaporeans love to frequent cafés. While cafés are aplenty, unfortunately, many well-known brands do not cater to folks with dietary restrictions.
Thankfully, with growing social awareness over recent years, more establishments have started embracing the goal of inclusivity. Be it through attaining Halal certification or via Muslim owners doing their due diligence, there now exists a myriad of Halal-friendly cafés for us to explore.
