A seafood restaurant is bringing back a classic dining experience for those who cannot eat inside.

House of Seafood, known for serving up different flavored crabs, is inviting patrons to enjoy its food in their own cars parked behind the Punggol restaurant.

“For those of you who have not fully vaccinated, yet crave to [dine] in the restaurant…we have an awesome idea for you!” the restaurant wrote yesterday.

More than 200 parking spots are available for anyone to drive up and order. No alcohol will be served for obvious reasons, added the restaurant.

Advanced booking and ordering is required by phone.

Singapore yesterday reopened dining and gatherings of up to five for those who are fully vaccinated. Those unvaccinated, however, are not allowed to dine in unless they are able to show that they have tested negative within the past 24 hours. This excludes dining in at hawker centers and coffee shops, where only two people are allowed regardless of vaccination status.

Over 3.8 million people – close to 70% of the nation – have been fully vaccinated.

Infection numbers have dropped to double digits in the past week, recording 54 cases yesterday. In total, Singapore has logged 65,836 cases and 42 deaths since the outbreak began.
