Fabulous feasts for Ramadan
Enjoy great promotions when you break fast at these places
The fasting month for Muslims has started, and that means it is time for Hari Raya Puasa food promotions and specials.
Here are some of the most interesting ones for 2019.
Just in time for Ramadan, a halal version of the famous Joo Chiat Kim Choo rice dumplings is now available at 7-Eleven stores.
It comes in two new flavours: Nonya Chicken and Salted Chicken Halal Dumplings, retailing at $2.80 each ($2.50 till May 14).
The dumplings can be consumed on the go - perfect when you do not have time for a proper meal after you break fast. You can just pop this into the microwave and you are good.
