SINGAPORE: Halal beef bak kwa, also known as ’Dendeng’, is quickly becoming an alternative choice this festive season.
Dendeng House, for example, sells between 400 to 600 kilogrammes of dendeng daily — up from the usual 200 kilogrammes.
The dendeng is seen as an alternative, as prices do not get marked up during the Lunar New Year season.
Dendeng buyers also don’t have to contend with the long queues.
Robert Tan, a Chinese non—Muslim, said: "It’s a better option and I think the price is more reasonable also, especially during this period. This one the taste is quite nice, only difference of course is that this one is Halal."
Helen, a Chinese—Muslim, said: "I’m Chinese—Muslim, I choose dendeng. I can taste the dendeng, taste like bak kwa."
