Cheap halal food with huge portions
Having a huge appetite usually means that regular servings aren’t enough to satiate my hunger. Whenever I order dishes such as nasi lemak, I’ll always have to tell the makcik to add rice or an additional chicken wing as the portions are more than often too small for me. Places with generous portions are hard to find, but fret not as I’ve found 10 cheap halal food places with large mains at $10 or less.
1. Flying Wok
Flying Wok is a halal-certified zi char stall offering tom yum hot pot in a variety of sizes. If you’re here with a group of eight or more, order the Large Jumbo Mama Wok ($79.90), which comes with scallops, squid, clams, crab meat, prawns, meatballs, fried chicken, eggs, and noodles. Those looking to stretch their dollar even more can opt for the cheaper version at $49.90. It comes with lesser seafood and an assortment of mushrooms, fishballs, and cheesy hot dogs instead.

2. The Bread Gang
The Bread Gang’s cheese-drenched roti john is one huge, messy affair. The best way to enjoy the Roti John Cheeseburger ($6.90) is to do it section by section. Savour the crunch from the cucumber and onions, followed by distinct flavours from the minced meat, egg, and cheese sauce. Sides such as Curly Fries W Beef Rendang ($6.50) also come in huge portions, so order it only if you go with a friend.

Warong Kim’s Seafood is a zi char restaurant with a scenic view of the pond. One of my go-to comfort food is Fried Beef Hor Fun ($5.50/$8/$12/$16), as they are generous with the beef and it is really shiok when eaten with their sambal chilli. Seafood lovers can try their Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee ($5/$8/$12/$16) instead.
