Ah Hock Fried Oyster Hougang (阿福蠔煎后港) @ Whampoa Drive Block 90 Food Centre [Balestier]

Mention fried oyster and you would find people with differing views on what constitute a good plate of fried oyster; you have some who prefer a crispier texture, others who like more starch and a few who would rather eliminate the oysters for eggs. 

I do have my preference, just like the rest of you. And this brings us to the stall i am going to touch on today; Ah Hock Fried Oyster which used to be located at Lim Tua Tow market (Hougang) and boasts a history starting from 1927!

From the numerous accolades on the signboard, i must say my interest was piqued and after pondering for a while, i opted for an S$8 plate which should be sufficient for four persons. 

Now, let's continue with the preferences i mentioned earlier. From the look of the fried oyster, i already have that presumption i am not going to like it; reason being the lack of crisp. Yes, i am a crispy person when it comes to fried oyster and this was a tad too soggy, too oily in my opinion.

In addition, i dislike it when owners are over-generous with the starch. Although i wasn't overwhelmed by the taste (as in the case from many stalls), it was still a bit salty for my liking.

The oysters were really huge but again, i am those who would rather eliminate oyster meat for eggs. Having said that, the essence of oyster must be there in order to differentiate it from our typical furong egg! 


This is just me with my weird preferences. I am blogging about this just so i can refer to this review again in the future and tell myself not to order despite the long queue.
