Fried Oyster Omelette along Meldrum Walk Street Foods (near City Square) - Stall No 7 @ Johor Bahru [Malaysia]

I love street food but my stomach doesn't necessarily feel the same way and to be honest, i am less inclined to go with street food in Malaysia as i have had a few bouts of food poisoning in the country and hence; prefer to go for meals in restaurants and / or coffee shops.

However, my sister had been proclaiming her love for this particular fried oyster stall along Meldrum Walk Street Foods and since our dinner was pretty light; we decided to check it out since it's not that far, by foot, from the hotel. 

Manned by apparently a family of three, the medan selera meldrum walk fried oyster continued to draw a regular stream of orders even though it's close to 10.00 pm when we arrived! 

The aroma of fried egg was so enticing and from the look of them in the large pan, i bet it would be fluffy, oily and juicy; well worth the late-night calorie intake should it turn out to be delicious! 

Plump oysters in a container - frankly, i love fried oyster (known as or jian) but detest the gooey, unpleasant taste of actual oysters. Unless i am with a group of friends who enjoy the supposedly goodness of oysters, i will purposely pick out the oysters and leave them at the side of the plate. 

We were lucky (only that one time) as the fried oyster sold out shortly after we made our order and many potential customers left with disappointment on their faces. Joyce was not gloating; she was just excited that she could have her plate of fried oyster! 

Which was served after about 10 minutes of wait. This large plate cost us RM 13.00; which would be the equivalent of a small plate in Singapore once you do the conversion! Furthermore, i counted no less than 13 oysters; that's extremely generous! 

Taste has always been subjective, especially in Singapore where food is highly contentious; Joyce labelled this as the best and i can understand why; full of oysters, super eggy, had charred bits on the edges with the occasional sweet bites of diced up preserved turnip.

Personally, i prefer my fried oyster to have a crispier bite although i must give credit to this stall for having such a high egg content for its fried oyster and where each bite was filled with the rich, intense oyster flavour! 

Yum yum! p.s. Joyce cleaned up the oysters.
