Bang Bang Oriental food hall has been open for just shy of couple of years, but what exactly is it? To put it simply, it is one humongous hall filled with over 27 food and drink stalls – count me in! Although it would be amazing if EVERYTHING was halal, this is sadly not the case but there are certainly a few stalls that are fully halal or offer a partial halal menu, ranging from Korean to Indonesian. Here are a few options for halal food in Bang Bang Oriental food hall.

Before you get to the food, here is a map of the food hall. I have marked the ones serving full halal, partial halal, and desserts & beverages.

Wang Wang definitely stands out amongst the lot as having a certainly interesting menu like oak crusted fried chicken (not a typo, that is exactly what their menu says; maybe they meant oat crusted?) and Wang special cheese spaghetti. Bonus: kid items such as chicken nuggets and mini burgers are available on the menu.

You’ll spot Coconut Tree as soon as you walk into the hall; they have the longest queue! I have not had the chance to try it out but you’ll find traditional Malaysian hawker food treats like nasi goreng, chicken satay and kari laksa.

YAKI YA GRILL JAPAN

A trip to Japan may not be on the cards right now, but you can certainly have a taster of what to expect. Yaki Ya Grill is a Japanese stand specialising in yakitori, katsu, and other classics too. Whilst I was not the biggest fan of the skewers, the other menu items seem delectable.

It wouldn’t be an Asian food hall without the inclusion of an Indian establishment. Patiala Xpress’s vibrant green stand will instantly catch your attention, if the delicious aroma of curries didn’t first. Opt for the crispy chicken 65, shahi paneer, or even the syrupy gulab jamun.

Filipino food became the trendy kid on the food scene at the end of last year and it seems to be trickling into 2019 too. Whilst we wait for a fully halal Filipino restaurant to come our way, you can have a little taster at Manila Kitchen with the classic chicken adobo and beef kare kare.

Who here wants halal Korean food? My hand is raised well above my head right now. Sadly, just the chicken is halal at Jenchi Korean Kitchen, but if that means I can chow down on lots and lots of Korean fried chicken, then count me in! P.S. make sure you get a bingsu when out there – they looked divine!

If you are on the hunt for those Instagrammable Japanese soufflé pancakes, Fluffy Fluffy is what you are looking for. These jiggly little guys come in a variety of flavours from Oreo to berries, and can be found opposite the entrance to the food hall.

My new obsession is bubble tea and I had a field day when I saw Chatime at Bang Bang, one of my regular bubble tea spots.

TIGER SUGAR

This bubble tea here is the Justin Bieber of all bubble teas. Fresh from Taiwan, Tiger Sugar is famous for it’s so-called stripes of brown sugar syrup on the side of the cup (like a tiger). I wasn’t too wowed and prefer other bubble tea places, but if you enjoy the sweet, rich molassy flavour, this is a tea for you. P.S. I’m hearing this isn’t the authentic Tiger Sugar brand, any clue?

WONDERFUL PATISSERIE

Cream cakes, egg tarts, and sweet taro buns? Yes, please. You’ll find Wonderful Patisserie just outside the main food hall. Just be sure to double check the ingredients as some items may not be suitable for a halal diet.

Seems like one is spoilt for choice for halal food in Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall! Please do not forget to double check the halal status of the food before you eat there as suppliers may change!

    Thanks so much for this! The map is so useful, I only live down the road but don’t tend to eat there as the halal places aren’t clear. But this is so needed! Thanks again
