Searching for a place to enjoy an authentic Japanese dining experience? Look no further, Check out Haráru Izakaya! A quaint restaurant set in the heart of the Arab quarters, which serves exquisite Halal-certified Japanese cuisine!
Traditionally, a Japanese Izakaya is a small, casual Japanese pub where people gather to eat and have after-work drinks. Normally, the word ‘Izakaya’ is strongly associated with the idea of consuming alcoholic beverages – this is why when Haráru Izakaya opened last year as the first Muslim-owned Japanese Izakaya it created such a buzz.
‘Haráru’ means Halal in Japanese; hence Haráru Izakaya, is the first Muslim-owned Japanese Izakaya in Singapore, serving authentic Japanese cuisine that is Halal certified. There is no pork items or alcoholic beverages served here; yet a fun and cordial ambience is replicated to ensure that customers still can savor the atmosphere that is associated to the authentic Izakaya experience.
Their menu is composed of a wide variety of dishes separated accordingly into Yakimono (grilled dishes), Kushiyaki (skewers of grilled meat or vegetables), Agemono (deep-fried dishes) and Nimono (simmered dishes) – and recently, they released a new Ramen menu, so be sure to check it out too!
Besides their wide array of food choices, Haráru Izakaya also offers an interesting range of beverages – they are popular for their one-of-a-kind mocktail concoctions labelled with interesting names such as Sakura Blossom, Mido Sour, and Blue Hakkiado. While you’re there be sure to also check out their other beverage choices such as Halal lager!
Located just a stone’s throw away from the renowned Kampung Glam and Haji Lane precincts, this quaint double-storey restaurant is nicely decorated to create a family-orientated atmosphere with traditionally styled Japanese interior. The walls are beautifully embellished with Japanese décor and murals; and the seating arrangements also replicate what a customary Izakaya would look and feel like.
Haráru Izakaya brings the Japanese dining experience to the halal community and offers another dining option for multicultural groups to gather at for reunion over good quality Japanese food!
