Sakura Halal Thai Chinese Restaurant II

26 August 2009

If you're looking for affordable, simple and especially Halal-certified restaurants in the City Hall area, there's Sakura Restaurant and Magic Wok located at Capitol Building just diagonally opposite of Raffles City Shopping Centre. I was actually thinking if there's anymore distinctively Halal eateries in the area and I realised that actually... there isn't! Of course there's Pizza Place at Raffles City which doesn't serve pork or lard, but it isn't certified Halal. Some of my friends have been asking me for suggestions where they could take some of their Muslim friends out for dinner and I have to say it's not easy finding a suitable place here. Perhaps you could consider Breeks, Swensen's, Tambuah Mas or Seoul Garden at Marina Square, or Secret Recipe, Bali Thai or House of Sundanese Food (link to Great World City outlet) at Suntec City. If you look at the list, it's pretty much the same old restaurants all over again and so for the sake of my Muslim friends I do wish there could be more interesting eateries in future. Sakura and Magic Wok aren't as fanciful as these restaurants, but the food is fairly decent.

Fried Wanton: 3/5

These were just simple, crunchy delights. Daphne commented that it had a slightly sourish aftertaste but I thought it was alright actually.

Sambal Kangkong: 4.25/5

The staple dish the both of us always order. I liked it a lot because the vegetables were fresh and the sambal chilli nicely spicy.

Hotplate Beancurd: 2.75/5

Very typical, standard fare.

Very good.

$4.00 for the fried wanton
$6.00 for the sambal kangkong
$8.00 for the hotplate beancurd
$1.00 for a plate of white steamed rice
$1.80 for a glass of lime juice

11 Stamford Road
#01-04 Capitol Building.
