Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill @ Tan Boon Liat Building - A New Home For Its Seasonal Seafood And Charcoal Grilled Dishes


Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill which used to be located at Raffles Place moved to its new home at Tan Boon Liat Building. The new place is beautiful and cosy. Though it may not be as accessible by public transport compare to its previous home, there are plenty of parking lots for those driving.

Taramosalata 4/5

Our lunch started with Taramosalata ($14), a Greek meze made from tarama, and cod's roe. It has a slight pinkish colour which makes it very attractive to the sensitives, garnished with red wine shallots, Kalamata olives, dill and thyme. Best to have it together with the sourdough. I like the jalapenos served at the side, which helps to freshen up the palate.

Dorper Lamb "Lollipop" 4.8/5

The dish that sold my heart is probably the Dorper Lamb "Lollipop" ($12). It is one damn good lamb dish beautifully marinated with aromatic spices. The whole pairing of Moroccan-spiced chermoula, chipotle, grapefruit, mint salsa, poblano labneh and watercress with the fork-tender lamb may feel like there is a lot of things going on, but they work harmoniously together.

Truffled Kombu Cold Pasta, Prestige (Ikura Mountain) 3.8/5

Suitable for sharing is the Truffled Kombu Cold Pasta, Prestige ($68) topped with a mountain of ikura. The texture and flavours are spots on, but it is rather expensive though it is suitable for 3 to 4 persons.

Spanish Mussels (500g) 4.5/5

For $38, you get a whole plate of huge and plump Spanish Mussels prepared in mariniere style with a splash of Pernod. A well-executed dish that is not sophisticated yet brings up the freshness of the shellfish.

78 Degree Fremantle Octopus 4.2/5

Last but not least, we had the 78 Degree Fremantle Octopus ($36) grilled to perfection. It is tender and succulent, with a slightly crispy exterior. The smokiness further enhances the beautifully cooked dish, paired with pistou, burnt cauliflower, olive, chorizo crumbs and sea grapes.

For coffee lover, you maybe delighted to know that Anther by Glasshouse shared the same space with Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill. Coffee and pastries are available from 9am to 6pm daily.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
