[Updated 15 September 2020: Do note that due to COVID-19 safe distancing measures, some eateries in both public and transit areas may be temporarily closed until further notice. Changi Airport Terminal 2 is also currently undergoing renovation works until 2021 (estimated).] It's always a good thing to arrive early for your flight at Singapore's Changi Airport. With many things to do and sights to explore, you can definitely make the most of your waiting time here. If you have free time in your hands, how about turning it into a quick food trip? You'll be surprised to know that Changi Airport has a variety of halal food offerings, ranging from local dishes to Western, Japanese and Korean food! Before you're off to find the best halal food at Changi Airport, here are some fun facts that you'll find interesting about it!
Changi Airport
Situated in the far east of Singapore, Changi Airport boasts an outstanding accolade of being Skytrax's world’s best aviation hub for seven years in a row (as of 2019). Besides having 4 main terminals (soon to be 5), the airport has Jewel Changi Airport, the latest glass dome-shaped mall that houses the world’s tallest indoor waterfall amongst a beautiful garden landscape - and lots of halal food too! 🤗
Changi Airport is easily accessible as it houses its own MRT station underground. The Changi Airport MRT Station is the last station along the East-West Line. With the addition of a hotel, swimming pools and shower facilities (for passengers transiting in Changi Airport), it comes to no surprise why Changi Airport has been on the lips of many travellers. With amazing accessibility and world-class facilities, our writer even shared why they think Changi Airport truly is the best airport in the world! On top of that, there are loads of halal-certified food options, most of which are opened 24/7. If you're hungry, get your tummies ready as we present the ultimate halal food guide to Singapore’s Changi Airport!

1. Burger King Kicking off this list is one of the famous fast-food burger joints in Singapore. The home of the mighty and stackable Whopper 🍔 (from SGD 8.20), Burger King is famous for its giant burgers and yummy onion rings 🤤  If you are lucky (and head to Singapore at the right time), you'll get to sample yummy seasonal burgers and sides including Laksa Burger, Mala Burger and Chicken Fries. #HHWT Tip: There are 3 other Burger King restaurants in Changi Airport – The Transit Areas in Terminal 1 and 3 and in Jewel.

Fitra Chicken Rice What’s a trip to Singapore without trying out one of the country’s national dishes? Lucky for you, you won’t have to go far for a decent plate of chicken rice. Try out Fitra’s signature chicken rice that comes with a side of roasted or steamed chicken (from SGD 4.50). The stall is located at Orchis T1 canteen, also known as T1 Staff Canteen.
