Ah Chuan Oyster Omelette
Ah Chuan's Oyster Omelette. Finally. Third time's the charm, as they say. Been here two times earlier and it was closed. My own fault for not properly checking the opening hours/days. I am glad I finally got to try this Makansutra Legend. Because it means I no longer need to come here again. Ever. It is simply not worth travelling all the distance for.
OK, sure, there was certainly something tasty in the flavouring. Problem is, it wasn't evenly distributed.
My request for "extra crispy" met with a puzzled "Har!?" and resulted in more charred omelette pieces. Oysters were fresh, yes, but not very large, and few and far in between. Overall portion is also rather small for S$4. But even so, I had difficulty finishing it. OK, OK, I did just eat a lot of rojak too, so I wasn't too hungry to start with. It was very satiating though. I had to wait about a week before posting this. Felt too queasy just looking back at the photos.
Maybe I have lost my fervour for this grease-bomb. Oyster omelette doesn't seem to be such a treat these days. My system doth protest the liver-fattening aftermath. But hey, there's still Ah Hock at Whampoa to check out.
