6 places I’d like to suggest Prince Harry to have iftar at (with me, if that’s okay)

A food connoisseur, Shams’ top picks for iftar to show Prince Harry Singapore through food. This article reflects her personal views.


I’m sure you all have heard that Prince Harry is visiting our dear Singapore to participate in a charity polo competition. More importantly, however, for fellow fans of the ginger prince (especially ME), His Royal Highness will be taking part in an iftar during his visit here.

Now I’ve been a fan of Prince Harry since forever (he’s only five years older than I am so a girl who grew up watching Disney can dream about being swept off her feet by a non-Muslim prince). My obsession with Rupert Grint during his career as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series further fuelled by fixation on redheads.

Recently however, Prince Harry was rumoured to be dating Suits actress Meghan Markle and I was over the moon! I practically eat live and breathe Suits and *ahem* I was sorta dating Patrick J Adams. For one night. Okay fine I didn’t date him, I simply appeared on his Instagram feed during a Suits premiere event here in Singapore. But hey! Another similarity between me and Prince Harry!

We’ve been trying to interrogate our sources for Prince Harry’s arrival but none of them have spilled the beans yet so I shall continue stuffing them with kueh raya until they speak. In the mean time, besides sampling Jasmine tea bonbons, dearest His Royal Highness Prince of Wales aka Prince Harry, allow me to show you the world through food that’s best for your iftar date with me session with local Muslims.

Let me show you my world Prince Harry

1. Segar Village

Who can resist the delicious zi char that Segar restaurant offers? Salted egg yolk squid, chilli crab and cereal prawns are more than enough to tempt His Royal Highness to have a date with me. Plus, we could head down to Geylang for some durian right after!

2. Saltwater

I’m pretty sure Prince Harry would enjoy the local flavours at Saltwater like laksa, pengat durian and especially the wide array of grilled meat and seafood part of their Ramadan menu. I mean, why Netflix & Chill when you can Chill & Grill?

3. Kucina Italian Restaurant

I’ve said this plenty of times, but Kucina is the go-to restaurant for halal authentic Italian cuisine. Try their handmade gnocchi and freshly made pizzas to reignite your love for Prince Harry, I mean, Italian food.

Tiramisu, or Pick-Me-Up; well you can certainly pick me up, Prince Harry.

4. Haron Satay

What is Singapore without satay, am I right? Voted as the best satay in town during last year’s inaugural Satay Challenge, Harun Satay serves up a mean plate of beef and chicken satay spiced to perfection. A long breezy walk by the beach would be perfect to end the night too.

5. Teh Bhai at Kampung Glam

Not exactly the ideal place for an iftar date but I’m sure Prince Harry would like to soak up the atmosphere of Bussorah Street and join the throngs of people lepaking at Teh Bhai after their terawih prayers. It would also be a great place for Prince Harry and I to debut our #shipgoals.

Teh Sarbat
Address: 21 Baghdad Street, 199660

6. Pondok Gurame

If Prince Harry still wishes to have a romantic evening with *ahem* me (and the accompanying entourage of course), we can always head to Pondok Gurame to soak up some quiet alfresco dining by the pool. Rather than singing the catchy Gurame tune at the end of the meal, I’d rather Prince Harry be singing my name instead.

Not gonna lie…

But His Royal Highness Prince Harry and I would make very beautiful babies.

 Well, a girl can just continue to dream.
