Dining out was one of the first thing most Singaporeans did once Phase 2 started.
Many were eager to satisfy their cravings, however, some were unable to do so.
They were Muslims looking forward to dining at A&W Singapore.
In April 2019, A&W Singapore mentioned that they had plans to submit their application to the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) for halal-certification.
However, even as Phase 2 starts, A&W Singapore is still not halal-certified.
‘Why? Have A&W not applied for any halal-certification?’
Well, according to HaveHalalWillTravel, A&W mentioned in April 2020 that they are in the midst of applying for halal certification.
However, according to MUIS, they have not officially received A&W’s application.
So I guess we will have to wait a little while more before A&W is halal-certified 😢

And to those who can’t wait, A&W mentioned that the items and ingredients used in the restaurant are sourced from suppliers with Halal certification.

So it’s you really have to eat at A&W now, perhaps you can do so?
However, halalSG did mention on twitter that one should ‘read through its ingredients on the product packaging to check if it contains high-risk ingredients / determine if the eatery deals with high-risk ingredients’ before consuming something that isn’t Halal certified.

In the meantime, we can only hope that A&W will be halal-certified as soon as possible and choose to dine-in at other places.
Additionally, just in case, you aren’t aware of the new measures implemented at coffee shops and hawker centers, do consider reading this article on how these places will raise hygiene standards.
