Angie’s Oyster Bar and Grill @ Tan Boon Liat Annex Building

  • 2 min read

Such a quaint eatery literally in the middle of the city, yet tucked away like a hidden gem. Angie’s Oyster Bar and Grill was a modern yet rustic boutique-like restaurant we found next to the grand old dame of furniture warehouse retailers - Tan Boon Liat Building.

After driving a round in the large open-air Carpark and wondering which end of TBL building the eatery was at, we realised that it was housed in the shorter, often overlooked block in the TBL compound and promptly headed there.

There were two sets of staircases leading up to the outlet, one with a cute sign that said only exit, so we had to make our way round the building (which fortunately wasn’t large) to the other staircase. This Lottle walk around offered us a closer look at the little TBL signage and ‘garden’ that looked ‘neatly unkempt’.

A short climb up and we found ourselves in a modern Mediterranean-like venue with European style benches and wood and glass panelled white doors that have the old-world European charm with a tinge of new. Just enough charm to make you feel welcomed to a familiar setting yet sufficient to evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity.

We promptly sat at a bench and table in the ‘balcony’ area overlooking the TBL carpark to enjoy the evening cool.

As the name suggested, Angie’s Oyster Bar & Grill offered a selection of about 7 oysters from different parts of the world like France, Japan and America. The rest of the menu offered western mains such as surf and turf burgers, steak and other seafood/land selections that were yummy enough.

Service was attentive and the ambience was cozy, which made our entire dining experience pleasurable.
