Fried Oyster Omelette (蠔煎) - Bee Kee Cooked Food (明记熟食) @ Chong Pang Food Centre

My all-time-favourite fried oyster came from a stall along the famous food street in Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia - Jalan Alor. It is the only place where i relish in eating the shit-eating oysters.

In Singapore, the ones i have are still a notch lower but when the craving starts to act up, i need to find alternative substitutes! I can't travel all the way up to KL, a 5-6 hours bus ride, just to have a plate of or-jian (hokkien for fried oyster)!

One of the better or-jian in Singapore came from this hawker stall at Chong Pang Hawker Centre. Let's put it this way; i have been eating it since young and went through the generation transition from the father as the cook to the son now.

I am the kind of guy who dislikes wet, overstarchy fried oyster and prefers those with a heavy egg ratio! There will be an added bonus if it has sides that are crispy with a slight touch of burnt marks.

This stall dispenses the appropriate cooking style that satisfies my craving.

Unfortunately, each additional mouthful resulted in an increasingly overbearing sensation - definitely recommended to be shared with a few persons. By the way, much as some of you hate it, coriander leaves tasted really good with chilli and fried oyster omelette!!
