Claypots Evening Star Restaurant

Published November 18th 2014
I've passed through it almost every weekend when I went to shopping at South Melbourne market; the half opening door without a window or wall on the outside, which I thought was just part of the market. This feeling continued even when I first went in there with my friend. We were going to have dinner on Sunday night in a high ranking restaurant that we found on Urbanspoon, which was called 'Claypots Evening Star'.

The first thing I can see in the restaurant is the big screen on the inside wall. Later it started to show a black and white silent film.

Then the jazz music started to play. The restaurant filled with relaxing and gentle atmosphere. As a jazz fan, I guess this is why I then stayed here chatting with my friend for three hours enjoying the meal.

Now it's the main part. Claypots is famous for its seafood, and it is easy to know why - it is right next to South Melbourne market, which offers the freshest seafood at a reasonable price. The interior design is quite interesting, it has the kitchen into the centre of the restaurant, where customers can watch the chefs cook. Behind them is long refrigerator cases filled with fresh seafood.

I highly recommend the raw clams and cooked ones. The raw ones taste fresh and natural, with lemon source and salt. The cooked ones are served with soup and some vegetables. I personally prefer the raw ones, maybe they are the best raw clams I ever had.

Claypots Evening Star is a great place to go for dinner. The owner is actually from Turkey, and all the staff come from various countries. It's sort of like a little European restaurant in Melbourne. Now they have another similar restaurant in St Kilda, I guess next time we will be in st Kilda, watching a little silent film with gentle jazz music with fresh seafood.
