Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill @ Havelock - Refreshed Dining Space and a New Chef’s Seasonal Menu


Located in the Tan Boon Liat Building, Angie's Oyster Bar & Grill has been dedicated to offering quality seafood and meats since 2021. This time, the restaurant unveiled a new Chef's Seasonal Menu for dinner, featuring new creations and enhancements to beloved signature dishes.


Starting from 10 July, diners can enjoy this attractively priced dinner set, with options of a 4-course meal at $78 per person or a 6-course meal at $98 per person. Elevating the dinner with a specially curated wine pairing is also available: $58 per person for three 90ml pours or $78 per person for four 90ml pours, matching the respective courses.


Angie's has also been continually upgrading its interior. Recent revamps include a new copper wall showcasing their wine collection and a refurbished live oyster tank. The complete makeover is expected to be ready by July 2024, promising an even more inviting ambience for diners.


I am a huge fan of Kombucha ($9) and was elated to hear that Angie's serves homemade ones in three refreshing flavours: original, yuzu, and passionfruit. Handcrafted in-house, these kombuchas are all natural without any added preservatives or additives.

Chef’s Special Selection of Oysters 4.5/5

A visit to Angie's would only be complete with trying their oysters. The Chef's Special Selection of Oysters featured a trio, each uniquely dressed. On the day of our visit, we had oysters from Japan.

Chef’s Special Selection of Oysters 4.5/5

Typically, I enjoy my oysters bare, but Angie's demonstrated how suitable dressings can enhance the natural flavours of the shellfish. From right to left, we started with a refreshing piece adorned with plum-infused horseradish and shiso, followed by a zesty and sweet number with passionfruit ponzu, and concluded with a delightful pairing of Tsuyataro cucumber and cold-pressed olive oil.

Homemade Ricotta & Cranberry Apricot Jam Toast 4.2/5

The open-faced Homemade Ricotta & Cranberry Apricot Jam Toast was a real treat. Crafted and fermented in-house, the fresh ricotta shone through with its mild creaminess, beautifully contrasted by crunchy Granny Apple strips and tangy-sweet apricot jam.

Blue Tasting of the Sea 4.2/5

Our amuse-bouche, aptly named Blue Tasting of the Sea, featured three delightful bites - bluefin tuna topped with negi on crispy rice, Galician blue prawn tartar studded with flying fish roe atop toasted sourdough and finally, my favourite of the three, a blue swimmer crab slaw served on a homemade crispy spiced papadum.

Charred Romaine Wedge 4.2/5

Angie's rendition of the classic Caesar Salad is one to look out for. Their Charred Romaine Wedge is adorned with specially sourced chilli pepper-cured Atlantic sardines, parmesan polenta chips, homemade anchovy vinaigrette, and hickory-smoked bacon. The result is a balanced mix of smokiness, cheesiness, and crunch.

Angie’s Original Fish & Chips 4.2/5

For my main course, I chose Angie's Original Fish & Chips, while my dining companions chose the Hawke's Bay Wagyu Ribeye and Cold-water Lobster Linguine.

Angie's Fish & Chips, a favourite among diners, offered a surprise in this set menu: instead of just one type of fish, it featured two — NZ Wild-caught Halibut and Line-caught Barramundi, both coated in their signature stout batter for an impressive crunch. Accompaniments included fries, crushed peas, and a jalapeno tartar sauce.

Strawberry Meringue with Toasted Coconut Gelato 4/5

We concluded our set dinner with a festive dessert, the Strawberry Meringue with Toasted Coconut Gelato. Thoughtfully created to commemorate Singapore's upcoming 59th birthday in August, it is adorned in celebratory hues of red and white. A scoop of coconut gelato accompanies homemade elements of strawberry crumble, strawberry-swirled meringue chips, sliced strawberries and lychee pearls.

Ube Cornbread 4.2/5

The unique Ube Cornbread ($18) was highly recommended and lovely! A warm base of sweet cornbread is topped with a smooth ube (purple yam) Mont Blanc, paired harmoniously with coconut gelato, mild cheddar custard and toasted coconut sprinkles.
