Oyster Bar & Grill Wharf

In the past, when I think of oysters, the picture that comes to mind are the slimy little things found in oyster omelette, and they have a fishy taste. I didn't like them very much. 

Then, the boyfriend brought me to this restaurant called Oyster Bar & Grill Wharf which is a  Western restaurant located at Roberson Quay. His close friend's girlfriend is working there.   

This is where my love affair with oysters started.

On my first visit, the boyfriend somehow managed to convince me to try their Fried Oysters.


The oysters arrived on a bed of sea salt, each fried to a perfect golden colour and resting neatly in their shells. Before I even start eating, the presentation has already won me over.

I hesitantly took a bite into one and the taste just blew me away. There is no fishy taste, there is no saltiness; there is only the creaminess of the oysters. If I didn't know that I am eating oyster, I would have thought I am eating cheese. There is a brown sauce in the shell that is meant to be eaten with the oyster. The slightly salty sauce balances out the oiliness, but I didn't really use much of the sauce because I was too busy enjoying myself in oyster heaven.

I was never an oyster lover, until now.

This is their oyster platter, where we have the French oysters to the left and Canadian oysters to the right. Everyone have their preferred way of eating fresh oysters, I like mine with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of Tabasco. Oh, they are so fresh and crunchy.


The restaurant also serves other food beside oysters. I have had the pleasure of trying their Sirloin Steak, Hamburger Steak, Cheese and Italian Sausages and Oyster Chowder (pictures not in order). 




There is only one word needed to describe the food here: excellent. The Sirloin Steak is done to a perfect medium rare, just as I have requested. The Hamburger Steak is so juicy and full of flavour and the Italian Sausages are flavourful. The Oyster Chowder is creamy and oh-so-good.

Besides oysters, the other speciality of this restaurant is their mojitos. They have 100 different mojitos, and I have made it my personal aim to try each and every one of them.

So far I have had Wharf, Cinderella and Ginger Mint Tea (pictures not in order). 




We even got to try the Valentine's Day Special Mojito, which is created by Stella (boyfriend's close friend's girlfriend, who is now my roommate) herself! 


If your perception of oysters is still at the slimy and fishy 'things' in oyster omelettes, or you want a nice drink to chill out after work or a satisfyingly good meal, Oyster Bar & Grill is definitely the place to be.

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.


I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.



Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.


The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.
For drinks,…

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.




The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
