Finding Halal turkey is like witnessing the appearance of a double rainbow. You have heard of it before, but strangely enough, it’s difficult to chance upon! From fast food chains to hotel buffets, Halal turkey in Singapore is not as ubiquitous as another flightless bird we know and love, the chicken. Be that as it may, the turkey still stands strong in the flavour and texture department, adding that extra ‘oomph’ to any feast.
On this list, we have gathered five of the latest and greatest sources of Halal turkey you can find this month. Just like a double rainbow, they only come when the time is right! So make sure you get your hands on these seasonal dishes while they’re still available.
1. Portopantry X Zac Butchery
Roasted Whole Turkey With Stuffing ($99.00)
Where else can you get prime meats than at your local butchery? Zac Butchery has been around for years now and is a familiar brand among the Muslim community. During a time when Halal stuffed sausages, rack of lamb and other cured meats were difficult to find, Zac Butchery would be there to save the day, serving the freshest quality meats mainly from Australia, New Zealand and South America.
In collaboration with Zac Butchery, the online marketplace, Portopantry, is now receiving orders for a whole roasted turkey with chicken herb stuffing AND 250ml cranberry sauce under their Christmas Feast promotion. At an estimated weight of 4.5-5.4kg, this turkey is the perfect centerpiece for corporate gatherings, parties and intimate events.

2. The Halia
Whole Roasted Turkey ($70.00)
Due to incredibly popular demand, the whole roasted turkey from The Halia is currently out of stock! A special entry on the restaurant’s seasonal Christmas menu this December, this whole roasted turkey is so large and weighs an approximate 3-4kg, it can feed about 5-8 people with large appetites. No wonder it’s sold out! However, do not be discouraged, as this dish is available for order once again on the 16th December 2018. To reserve for delivery before 16 Dec, please call The Halia at (65) 8444 1148 (press option 4) or email [email protected].
The Halia also hosts other mammoth-sized foods for your year-end gatherings, such as the Spiced Smoked Turkey Breast and Honey Glazed Turkey Ham.
Honey Glazed Turkey Ham ($67.00)
To add icing to the cake, all these dishes can be ordered together under their special Christmas Gathering and Christmas Party Packages found on their website here. The Christmas Gathering Package (A), for example, is priced at a reasonable $275+ and includes a whopping SEVEN large dishes. What are you waiting for? Order now!

5. Rumah Rasa Year-End Festive Buffet
The unusual but intriguing Blue Bird that is a highlight at Rumah Rasa’s year-end festive buffet has not gone rotten nor is it inedible. In fact, quite the opposite is true! This dish is a whole Tandoori Turkey that has been braised using a Butterfly Blue Pea Flower till soft and tender. Since this is an Indonesian restaurant, the Tandoori Turkey has fittingly been stuffed with Indomie! Any instant noodle fanatic and foodie would know from description alone that this dish is going to be mindblowing.
