Fresh ocean-trawled oysters served raw on ice and classically accompanied with some lemony spice or vinaigrette almost seems like a gift from the heavens. Truly, nothing quite compares to the first divine slurp the moment you detach the icy oyster from its shell. Like the myriad other blessings of globalization we must be thankful for, Singapore boasts restaurants offering arguably the best oysters internationally available.
In random order, have a look at these oyster-offering restaurants and their amazing happy hour promotions (if any):
Indulge in European bistro classics, cocktails, and not least oysters at urbane The Black Swan, which features a haute Jazz Age makeover replete with attentive service and choice. Four types of oysters from USA and France (Gillardeau oysters for example) are offered at around S$6 a piece, and each order presents you with some champagne mignonette as sauce.
Happy hour, when one can get S$2 oyster orders along S$9 house pours and wines, is from 5pm – 8pm from Monday to Friday.
