It’s time of the year again for Muslims worldwide to observe a month of fasting, also known as Ramadan. From just before dawn to dusk, Muslims refrain from not only consuming food and water but also speaking ill of others.

Once the sun sets, it’s customary for Muslims to break their fast with a hot beverage and dates before they ease into their dinner, or iftar meal. 

If you’re a Muslim looking to break your fast, we’re here to help ease the fuss of picking a restaurant for a hearty Ramadan buffet or meal at the end of the day. Read on for our pick of 15 places for a satisfying iftar meal — from traditional Indonesian fare to Western delights.

Why visit? Known for its scenic settings and peaceful ambience, The Halia, which means ginger in Malay, is hosting a special Ramadan Dining in the Gardens from Mar 12 to Apr 9. It’s hard to beat having dinner right in the expansive Botanic Gardens, which happens to also be a Unesco World Heritage site. 

The communal menu serves four persons and is priced at S$285. Given that it features over 12 dishes, and comes with exclusive pink packets, we’d say that it’s really quite a steal. 

Crowd favourites: The Ramadan communal menu has a good mix of western and local flavours — after being wowed by the charred broccolini and the baked French camembert, bring it back to something local (but still fancy) with the blackmore wagyu beef rendang.

13. Harummanis

Why visit? Starting as a humble hawker stall in Teck Whye Lane in 1992, Harummanis has served the local community for over two generations. To date, the nasi padang stall still stands at Teck Whye, but chef Akmal Anuar is redefining contemporary Asian cuisine with his own take — Harummanis at Sultan Gate.

Despite sharing the same name, Harrummanis at Sultan Gate offers a modern interpretation on time-honoured Malay recipes from his parents, and is said to be chef Akmal’s most personal project to date. 

From Mar 12 to Apr 9, the restaurant is serving up a S$100 three-course Ramadan set menu for two people to share, though its ala carte menu is still available for those who might prefer to order freely. 

Crowd favourites: The Ramadan set comes with traditional bubur lambuk (beef porridge), beef tenderloin batang pinang (beef tenderloin satay) and lamb shank bahmia (lamb shank marinated in spices, served with spiced basmati rice), but if you have space for more, its paru belado (beef lungs with sambal belado, S$18) has its own legion of fans. 

14. Ikea Restaurant Tampines

60 Tampines North Drive 2
Open: Sunday to Thursday (9am to 10pm), Friday and Saturday (9am to 10.30pm)

Crowd favourites: If we were you, we’d head straight for the nasi kerabu and curry chicken leg (a Kelantanese rice dish that’s blue in colour) (S$8.90), and end our meal with the caramelised gula melaka cream cake (S$4.50). Alternatively, you can stick with the classics with the assorted kueh (S$5.90) or ondeh ondeh (S$3.50).
