Oysters are considered a luxurious treat in many parts of the world and they are highly prized by shellfish connoisseurs because of the decrease in supply in recent years. This saltwater delicacy comes in hundreds of varieties and each one of them carries their own unique taste and identity.
Oysters are bivalve molluscs that can be eaten raw, roasted or cooked, and most people prefer pairing them with luxurious wines. As with most premium seafood, oysters have their own categorisation—from grade 0 to grade 5—and prices are highly dependent on their respective grades. That means you can find both affordably priced oysters, as well as top-grade oysters that come with heavier price tags.
Our guide to 13 Best Places To Eat Oysters In Singapore gives you an overview of restaurants that offer the finest oysters so you can teleport yourself to oyster heaven.
Sunny Singapore has seen a recent slew of hot pot restaurants as of late which can only confirm one thing—we Singaporeans are absolutely crazy about it. In fact, before colossal brand Hai Di Lao made hot pot trendy again, steamboat dinners used to be limited to family reunions during festive occasions. But the philosophy behind it stays the same—that is bringing people closer together through the cooking and sharing of food from a communal pot.
But while restaurants such as Hai Di Lao and Beauty In The Pot remains at the top of the hot pot rankings, especially so for their array of tasty soup bases, fresh ingredients and out-of-this-world service, prices there are not necessarily affordable. Thankfully, we have cheaper alternatives such as Shi Li Fang that offer hot pot meals with an equally extensive range of fresh ingredients without compromising on the quality whatsoever.
Affordable prices, reasonable service and food that tastes just as good as their bigger counterparts? Count us in!
