Oyster fans, what up!!

I’m not a fan, but for those who are, this is for you.

As seen in its name, this is a must try. For those who were dining with me, they mentioned that it is plump, fresh & really yummy.

They do have a happy hour promo that happens both on weekends & weekdays. The promo is $2++ a pop for half a dozen, with any alcoholic drink purchased. This is available from Mon to Fri, 6-8pm and Sat & Sun, 3-5pm!

Possibly one of my new found favourite starter / bar snack is Edamame!

This version is slightly blanched, so it’s served hot, topped with a sprinkle of sea salt (as you can see) & tadah, good to know!

I know it’s quite a cheap dish to prepare, but one can’t help but to order it once I see it on the menu.

Apart from their happy hour promotions for oysters, The Oyster Bank also serves up affordable and delicious bowls of don.

If you can’t decide between having 1 bowl from another, they’ve made your life easier by offering you half & half bowls!

I went for the half Spicy Salmon & Half Unagi Don! Each bowl was served with warm Japanese short grain rice, topped with your choice of ingredients, ikura, tamago & ginger.

The spicy salmon packed quite a punch, with freshly chopped slices of salmon mixed into their spicy sauce, but leaving you want more.

The Unagi was perfectly grilled, and barely had any bones in it (a good plus!).

What I enjoyed the most was that the sauces from the spicy salmon & Unagi actually tastes pretty good together and helped to coat each grain of rice, allowing you to finish the entire bowl of rice flawlessly, without much effort.

They pride themselves with using only charcoal to roast their meats, which the owner learned from a shifu from Hong Kong.
.
Their spread consists of your usual suspects of char siew, roasted pork (siew yoke), together with soy sauce chicken and roasted duck! Every piece of meat was extremely tender & juicy, especially the soy sauce chicken & roasted duck!
.
If you’re not too much of a fan of the herbal roasted duck, their version would be perfect for you with it’s subtle hints of herbs, without being too overpowering!
.
Do note that as they have limited portions, the store closes once they sell out, which is usually around 3pm in the afternoon!
.
Thank you @jthejon for the kind invitation! 🤤

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, I managed to enjoy 1 for 1 pizzas & 1 for 1 rice or risotto.

The grilled chicken & mushroom risotto was one of the highlights for the table as it packs a small punch with jalapeño!

The grilled chicken was juicy & succulent with a slight char on the skin, paired with the perfectly cooked risotto.

Another option you can choose is the KFC & Waffle ($18). KFC aka Korean Fried Chicken, is soy glazed chicken seated atop their cinnamon scented waffle with a side of kimchi slaw to balance the sweet and savoury with a tinge of sour! Definitely a winner!

Apart from its industrial interior & extremely famous desserts & croissants from its sibling company, @brotherbird_bakehouse, @stateland_coffeehouse has a pretty exciting menu as well!

My new fav would be their Mentaiko Tiger Prawn Aglio Olio ($20)! The Aglio Olio is mixed with tobiko and topped with Mentaiko sauce & additional tobiko to give you small bubbles of saltiness amidst the juicy tiger prawns & the al dente spaghetti! After a good toss & mix, each strand of spaghetti is coated perfectly with mentaiko & tobiko, without being too overpowering.

Also, a special mention to their side of Fried Cauliflower! Dehydrated, battered and deep fried cauliflower is tossed in curry powder to give you that crunchy but healthy tasty veggie dish that you need! Even non-veggie lovers (like me) do fancy this dish quite a fair bit!
