When it comes to oyster omelette, i have always insisted that the best can be found in Kuala Lumpur, along a renowned food street known as Jalan Alor.
For the uninformed, Jalan Alor is a 300-meter long street located very near to Bukit Bintang (the shopping belt of Kuala Lumpur) and is very crowded at night when food stalls, selling mainly Chinese food, open for business.
Coming back to my favourite or jian; i don't make a point to remember the exact location of the stall because recognising the boss (aka the chef) is so much more easier. For the benefit of my readers, please try to save this in your memory!
Fine! It would not merely be an order of oyster omelette. A plate of grilled stingray might just complete the supper.
Despite the black, charred look, it was filled with chunky meat but could do better if there was a thick spread of appetising sambal chilli on top.
We could not help but order ten sticks of chicken satay (more than half the price when compared to Singapore)! Hot and fresh from the charcoal stove, the marinated meat was generally too dry and too tough for my liking.
Finally, the oyster omelette! I was anticipating its bite after missing it for close to two years!
One word: disappointing. The taste was not even close to the ones i had in my past visits even though it was fried by the same man.
I know i am making excuses here but there were obvious changes from the past; the sizable oysters used to be diced up, hence releasing their rich delicious flavour into the omelette, followed by the partial mixing in of sweet chilli during the frying process.
Sigh..... Nuff said, i am now sad to declare that the spot for the best oyster omelette is now empty. :(
