Forget what you’ve heard, here’s how the West was really won.
In Singapore, the all-encompassing term “Western Food” could mean anything from pastas to mains with meat and fish to baked rice. We round up some of the best places where you can get halal western food on the island.

The Extreme Blue Mountain Beef Burger here has, get this, FIVE beef patties with pineapple, cheese, tomato, and lettuce. Now that’s mad and extreme indeed.

Seafood lovers will love the wide variety of American-style seafood-based dishes here. We’re talking about scallops, mussels, clams, tiger prawns, calamari, shrimps, oyster, salmon, dory, and cherry snapper.

Ask about their special lunch deals too.
If chicken is your thing, Nando’s is your best bet.
Besides their famous flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken, you can also get burgers, wraps, and pitas Customise exactly how spicy you want your chicken to be and if that’s not enough, add more flavour and fire with the sizzling PERi-PERi hot sauce.
What comes to mind when we say authentic British food? Fish and chips? Bangers and mash? Toad in the bole? English fry-up? Bubble and squeak? Steak pie?
Yup, they’ve got all of that here.
P/S: Their website perfectly explains the “western” connection behind the name “Mad Sailors”. Love it!
