Nestled along a foodie alley in Funan Mall is The Oyster Bank, an oyster bar that has a simple goal of offering quality oysters without breaking the bank. Oysters start at $2 apiece during happy hour from 5pm to 8pm on weekdays, and 3pm to 6pm on weekends.
The one condition to get this deal is that you must order one alcoholic drink per half dozen oysters, but that should be no difficult feat.

There are also flavours to pick from, including the Bloody Mary (from $4.25/piece), and baked Mentaiko (from $4.50/piece) oysters.
