Halal Food Week

General Event

What is Halal Food Week (HFW)

HFW is a month-long celebration of Halal cuisine, featuring four distinct events: Special Menu, Private Dining, Masterclasses and HFW Talks. Each event offers an opportunity to explore diverse Halal culinary traditions and innovations.

For more information, please visit our Programs Page.

Are all the events during HFW Halal-certified?

The aim of HFW is to enable Muslims to experience a wider variety of cuisines, and in that process, better understand and appreciate different cultures. To enable this experience, we work with Halal-Certified establishments, Muslim Chefs as well as non-Muslim Chefs who are committed to delivering top-notch cuisine following a Muslim-Friendly standard.

We work jointly with our partners such as the Singapore Halal Culinary Federation (SHCF) and Consultants to ensure that we adhere to a Muslim-Friendly regulation when working with establishments that are not halal certified (e.g. Muslim Owned / non Muslim Chefs for private dining experiences). To ensure transparency in the preparation we will be listing down what we mean by Muslim-Friendly.

  1. Venues used are Muslim-Owned with Muslim Staff in premise
  2. All ingredients used are halal certified
  3. “0% Alcohol” beverages may be served at the premise and it is up to the diner’s discretion to consume the beverage

The status of Muslim-Friendly / Halal Certified will be listed clearly in each event.
* Diners to dine at their own discretion.
