Singapore's Eastern Round Island Route just opened on the 22nd of January and we're all super excited! 🤩 The continuous 150km park connector is only part of the 360km island-wide network or recreational routes that are in store for Singaporeans to enjoy. Consisting of park connectors and trails, Singaporeans can enjoy hiking, cycling and just enjoying the nature-based ecological sights and sounds that surround the route. 😍Running through quite a few halal food hot spots like Jalan Kayu, Changi Village and even the Singapore River, HHWT brings you some of the best halal eateries you can find along the Eastern Round Island Route. From East to Central!

Halal Eateries Along Singapore's Round Island Route

1. Daya Izakaya - Jalan Kayu

For the uninitiated, izakayas are a small Japanese drinking establishment with food served tapas-style. They are usually casual eateries with small wooden tables and chairs and a place where the Japanese would hang out after work. Though they usually serve alcohol, Daya Izakaya is a Muslim-owned establishment so rest assured, you can immerse yourself in the izakaya vibes with halal Japanese food! From Japanese hotpots to halal Ebi Tempura, your cycling breaks along the new Round Island Route will be filled with not only good sights, but good food! Halal status: Muslim-owned Facebook
