Being the huge oyster fans, we are constantly on the lookout for new places to get our fix. The Oyster Bank is one such fantastic place we discovered recently.
Oysters in Funan Mall?
Located on the second floor of the shiny new Funan Mall, this restaurant has a laid-back vibe which is perfect for a date or drinks after work. I loved the soft lighting and the modern design.
We didn’t expect to find such a cool place in Funan but am so glad we did. 🙂
$2 Oyster Bank Happy Hour
Their Happy Hour deal seems to be quite well know and the place fills up fast. We had only just missed the queue when we got our seats at the bar (at 4pm on a Sunday no less?).
This promotion runs every day, from Mon – Fri (5-8pm) and Sat-Sun (3-6pm). With the purchase of 1 alcoholic drink, you can get up to 6 oysters at only $2 apiece. It’s on par with various other oyster happy hour promotions e.g. The Secret Mermaid.
The alcohol section is excellent – you definitely won’t feel like you were forced to order something average. They provide an extensive selection of wine, sake, champagne, draft beer and cocktails.
We chose to go with the Somerton Cabernet Sauvignon ($10 HH/$13 Regular). This was a rich, fruity wine that I really enjoyed. Would want to try the sake selection next time as we saw quite a few diners choose that.
Following the wine, our half-dozen oysters arrived fairly quickly. They were nicely plated on a bed of ice with tabasco and lemon on the side.
Creamy, Fresh Oysters – No Compromise on Quality
The oysters were simply AMAZING. They were creamy, salty and fresh. We loved how The Oyster Bank didn’t skimp on quality and size at all despite it being a happy hour promotion. Look at how large and plump the oysters are! We polished them off way too quickly.
There are also ponzo, mignonette and other variations but these ‘naked’ oysters are enough to get me hooked. I have been making plans to go back ever since.
We are definitely coming back here for the donburi (rice bowls) and a lot more oysters.
Food: 10/10 – enough said.
Value-for-Money: Happy hour $2 oysters is a great deal, especially for the quality.
Atmosphere: Great aesthetic, chill place.
Location: Convenient, 5 min walk from City Hall MRT.
