Oyster omelette from Xing Li
Oyster omelette ("or-luak" or "or-chien") has got to rank amongst the greasiest of all hawker foods (right up there with char kway teow and fried carrot cake). It is also one of the most delicious. I like mine with crispy egg and enough gooey starch which soaks up the seafood flavour. But given that it should be a rare treat, we must find really tasty oyster omelette. Otherwise it won't be worth the calories and cholesterol. One day I must try those from Ah Hock (Whampoa) and Ah Chuan (Toa Payoh).
Out of curiosity, I tried this stall at Old Airport Road food centre which sells nothing but oyster omelette. However, it is not terribly good. So I really don't know how long it will survive there.
