The Claypots Full Circle restaurant on Amoy Street is a collaboration between a restaurant in Melbourne and “their ardent Singaporean supporters”. Apparently, the first Claypots restaurant in Melbourne served primarily claypots and fresh seafood plates. It has evolved into a brand of restaurants said to be known for exceptional seafood dishes. The ardent supporters are a couple of university students who loved the seafood joint who have returned home to Singapore.
We are experiencing a hot dry spell in Singapore. The sun seems brighter than normal and the dry heat is scorching. Almost like summer in Spain. The weather inspired us to search for Mediterranean food in Singapore. These days we have quite a bit of Greek and Spanish restaurant choices and we know of only one Portuguese restaurant. We ended up at the Tapas Club in Orchard Central. We have been there before but their weekday 1 for 1 tapas deal was irresistible. Unfortunately, we were told that this arrangement would end soon (I think they said 16 Mar 2018), so please call ahead if you are thinking of going. There could be other weekday offers in the pipeline.
