Oyster Kitchen, as you may have deduced from its name, is a new hot spot in town for all things oyster. But for diners who feel squeamish at the very thought of the famous mollusc, fear not for there are other options on offer.
The restaurant is not spacious yet can squeeze in 60 people. Even so, the owner tries to ensure each table has privacy, leading to tiny tables for two with scarcely enough room for three dishes — ensuring every meal is an intimate affair.
Twenty different oysters are served daily, freshly delivered by air from France, the United States, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and Ireland.
Two favorites with oyster fans come from France, much-prized due to their low yield and distinctive flavor.
The menu changes seasonally according to ingredients sourcing, except some classic dishes offered regularly.
One highlight is fried scallops with cauliflower mash. Precise heat control ensures the meat outside is crispy, while inside has a firm, bouncy texture.
The scallops are topped with black truffle sauce so that each bite has layers of flavor. Delicate cauliflower balances the fatty scallop.
The garlic fries are also yummy — even better if accompanied by a beer.
Desserts are also highlights, especially the smooth and deep chocolate mousse — a layer of black chocolate alternated with a layer of white chocolate.
