It is almost that time of the year again; when I notice the smell of delicious curries and spices wafting through the HDB corridors, as the makciks prepare for their annual celebratory feasts. It’s one of things I love about living in Singapore; being able to witness these heartwarming celebrations, as my Muslim neighbours come together to celebrate Hari Raya Puasa after a month of daily dawn-to-dusk fasting.

If you’re planning for a Hari Raya Puasa feast this June, here are some of the most popular halal catering services for both at-home buffet spreads and barbecue parties.

KG Catering

KG Catering is one of the most affordable halal buffet caterers, with menus starting as cheap as $4.28 per pax! And there are actually 10 dish combinations that you can get for that price. It’s very basic, with just one rice/noodle, chicken/fish, 2 side dishes and packet drinks. What’s better is that the minimum is just 15 pax, which is great for a small, affordable party.

But if you think you can afford to spend a bit more to upgrade from plain rice and simple veggies, I recommend the value-for-money menus that are in the $8.56 to $11.67 per pax range. These have seafood dishes like Squid with Salted Yolk and Sambal Prawns, and desserts like Honeydew Sago and Bubur Hitam.

Delivery is $30 or $50 (before 7am or after 9pm), and is waived for orders above 100 pax.

Price per pax: $4.28 to $21.40

 

Eatz Catering

Eatz Catering’s name is a pun on “easy”, but is ordering from them really as fuss-free as they claim? Seems like it – they’ve even got last minute catering services that promise to deliver within 4 hours. Same-day surcharges are from $50 to $80, which may seem steep, but is actually quite reasonable for a last-minute affair.

The prices for their Asian Fusion buffet menu is average, at $8.35 to $29.75 per pax (min 30 pax). What’s notable is that their healthier menu is not that much more expensive, at just $9.42 to $12.84 per pax (min 30 pax). I wouldn’t call it “healthy” per se, but if you want an affordable yet not-so-unhealthy choice, I recommend this. Other options include International, Thai, Japanese, Middle Eastern and Peranakan cuisine. There’s also a Nasi Lemak / Biryani buffet option, plus a special Hari Raya menu.

Delivery is $48.15 on regular days and $58.85 on public holidays and eve of public holidays. It’s an additional $5.35 for deliveries to CBD areas.

Price per pax: $8.35 to $57.57

 

Delihub

Delihub is another big player in the halal buffet catering scene, and like SK Catering and Stamford Catering, caters for corporate events as well. The price range for their buffet menu is $8.55 to $30.82, but as with some of the bigger catering companies, there is a very high minimum order for the cheaper options. For the basic Delightful Savings A 8-course menu ($8.55) , you have to hit at least 60 pax on weekdays and a ridiculous 100 pax on weekends and public holidays!

Delivery is $53.50 for all orders.

Price per pax: $8.55 to $30.82

 

Shiok! Kitchen Catering (SK Catering)

SK Catering‘s halal buffet catering menu is a delightful mix of Asian, Thai, Western and International dishes. The value buffet menus start at $8.56 per pax for the 7 course set, and goes up to $16.05 for the 12 course meal. Although the prices seem competitive, the more economic options actually have a minimum order of 60 – 80 pax, which is quite a lot! (If you’re having such a big party, make sure you invite me, ok?)

The regular buffet menus are 11 to 13 course and minimum 30 pax only, but are priced much more expensively at $21.40 to $26.75 per pax.  For Hari Raya, there is a special 11-course menu at $16.05 per pax.

Price per pax: $8.56 to $26.75

 

Elsie’s Kitchen

Elsie’s Kitchen by Hesed & Emet is another popular halal buffet caterer, and it offers 8 buffet catering menus to suit every budget. Prices start at $10.59 for the 8-course Nostalgic Taste set, which features dishes like the “Nam Pla” Seafood White Bee Hoon, Golden Cereal Fish with Curry Leaves and finger food like Thai Fish Cake, Seafood Money Bag, or Honey Shrimp Wanton.

It seems like the minimum order of 20 – 50 pax is just there for you to hit $500 worth of orders. For the cheaper menus, you have to order for 30 – 50 pax while the more premium menus allow smaller parties of 25 pax. The most expensive menu is the Luxurious Flavours one – it’s $30.92 per pax, which can buy you a pretty good meal at a decent restaurant! However, it is a 12-course buffet selection that includes premium dishes like Soft Shell Crab with Thai Yellow Curry and D-I-Y Signature Peranakan Laksa.

Delivery is $50, and chargeable for orders under $600.

Price per pax: $10.59 to $30.92

 

Stamford Catering (Halal sister brand of Select Catering)

Stamford Catering is a subsidiary of the ever popular Select Catering, and offers quite a wide range of catering menus for halal diners – regular, international, Asian, Japanese and BBQ (see below) . The most economical option is the regular buffet, which includes a 7+1 course menu for just $10.70 per pax. You can add one more course (so 8+1), and that’ll be $11.84.

For fancier parties, there’s even an international buffet option, but that’s almost double the price at $19.26 (11+1 course) and $24.61 (12+1 course) per pax. Those watching the scales can opt for the healthier menu ($11.84 – $13.91 per pax), which features mainly stir-fried and grilled dishes (instead of the sinful deep-fried stuff). Check out the full menu for all options.

Delivery is $53.50 and $64.20 for non-CBD and CBD addresses respectively.

Price per pax: $10.70 – $24.61

 

Glory Catering

Glory Catering only has 3 buffet catering menus for 8- to 9-course set meals at $11 to $15 per pax. The cheapest option (8 Course Buffet Menu) is priced like its competitors’ mid-range menus, so it makes sense that the dishes offered are more premium too. You can order prawn, squid and mutton dishes, but you must choose between desserts or drinks. If you want them both, top up $1 per pax for drinks.

Delivery is $33, waived for orders above 80 pax. Glory Catering is closed on Mondays (no deliveries).

Price per pax: $11 – $15

 

Chilli Api Catering

Chilli Api Catering specialises in Peranakan cuisine, and even has several dedicated menu selections for that. Prices for the regular ala carte buffet menus start at $13.38 and go up to $23.33 (min 30 – 40 pax) per pax. Like Stamford Catering, Chilli Api Catering also offers a healthier choice menu ($13.70 – $16.05 per pax).

The more expensive menus are the international premium buffet sets and Peranakan fiesta buffet sets, which can be as pricy as $38.52 per pax. That’s the International Fiesta Grande Buffet, which has mouthwatering options like the Cold Dish Platter of smoked duck salsa, crispy salmon skin, chicken roulade, scallop net roll, seafood beancurd roll and yuba maki roll, plus the Oven Baked Slipper Lobster with Melted Cheese. Chilli Api Catering also delivers barbecue food (see below).

Delivery is charged separately at $48.15 to $74.90, depending on your address. It is only waived for orders above 60 pax.

Price per pax: $13.38 to $38.52

 

Rasel Catering

Rasel Catering seems to have very good online reviews, praising its service and food. However, most of them are for weddings, not home parties. The prices are above average, at $18.08 to $43.76 per pax. 

Although pricy, the menu offers not-so-typical buffet food: For instance, the cheapest option (International Fiesta – Western) includes a Shepherd’s Pie for starters, and Italian Chicken Cacciatore, Battered Oat Fish with Salad Cream Relish and more for the mains. The International Epicurean menu is the most atas at $43.76 per pax, but it features scallops, prawns and roasted leg of lamb.

Delivery is $64.20, unless you are delivering to the CBD ($74.90). Charges only waived for orders above $1,070. 

Price per pax: $18.08 to $43.76 

 

Halal BBQ Catering Services 2018

If you prefer to have barbecue, here are some halal BBQ catering options. These caterers basically supply you with plain and/or marinated raw meat and seafood that’s ready for the barbecue pit. Common dishes are satay, otah, nuggets, chicken wings and even marshmallows! Some also include cooked foods. In general, they’re more expensive than the buffet catering menus.

Halal BBQ catering services Price per pax Delivery charges
