If you’re an oyster lover, Bungalow is commemorating the festival by bringing out four new oyster dishes for the month of May, with each priced at $188. Try the champagne-poached oysters served with hollandaise sauce and microgreens or the deep-fried, beer-battered Indian-style oysters seasoned with chaat masala with yoghurt dressing.
