Tabbouleh Lebanese Gourmet Cafe and Restaurant is a bustling eatery that serves authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. One of two venues, you’ll find this branch tucked away on Bussorah Street within the Singapore Visitor Centre @ CUBE. Just a short walk from Bugis station, it’s a restaurant well worth seeking out. Their menu is full of traditional Lebanese food, from fresh salad and homemade dips to grilled meat specialities. The talented chefs at Tabbouleh use the charcoal grill to perfection, so we highly recommend ordering the platter of spiced meat skewers with rice and vegetables. The seafood dishes are also notable, such as marinated tiger prawns or deep-fried whole fish with tahini. Tabbouleh Lebanese Gourmet Cafe and Restaurant also has a nice and casual atmosphere, with both indoor and outdoor seating.

One Bowl Restaurant & Bar in Singapore is an all-day dining experience set within the illustrious The Sultan Hotel along Jalan Sultan in Bugis. Specialising in traditional and authentic Asian and Singaporean cuisine, One Bowl Restaurant & Bar is a dining experience you certainly won’t forget. The space itself is elegant and stylish, which matches the Asian-inspired menu perfectly. We recommend keeping an eye out for the One Bowl signature char siew noodles cooked with melt-in-your-mouth pork or the nasi lemak cooked in coconut milk and served with homemade otah, chicken wings, egg and lashings of chilli. One of our favourite places to dine, a reservation at One Bowl Restaurant & Bar in The Sultan Hotel Singapore is well-worth it.
Singapore’s Bugis district has a firm ambassador for Moroccan cuisine in Deli Moroccan. Bugis itself is named for the Indonesian Buginese people, who converted to Islam some five centuries ago. The Islamic influence is indeed strong in Deli Moroccan, whose dishes bear the imprint of Mediterranean, Berber, and Andalusian traditions. Indeed, Moroccan cuisine is one of the most diverse in the world, and Deli Moroccan’s Bussorah Street premises are the perfect showcase for these warm, delicately spiced specialities. Check Deli Moroccan’s lunch specials!
The Royals Steakhouse in Singapore began as a dedicated dessert and cake shop out along East Coast Road, but as its success grew, it moved across the city-state.

If you’re looking for a Muslim-friendly halal restaurant in Singapore for an intimate dinner date or a family celebration, this is the place to be. The Royals Steakhouse can be easily reached from Bugis MRT station, so try them out. Remember to book in advance though, as they can get busy.
