Ah Hock Fried Oyster Hougang

Ah Hock Fried Oyster at Whampoa Drive
I *finally* hauled myself to Whampoa Drive to sample the famous Ah Hock fried oyster. Did it meet my fantasies of crispy egg and succulent oyster? Well, not completely. There are crispy bits, yes. But there are not many oysters in this dish, and the few that I found were rather small and fiddly. They do have another dish called Fresh Korean Sambal Oyster - so perhaps they use the bigger variety for that. Prices start from S$8 for that though.

Actually, I like fried oyster most for the gooey starch bits, which absorb the seafood flavours of the dish. In this case, the starchy bits were a little too thick and congealed. The chili sauce provided is a little weak too, but the dish with chili paste itself didn't need more sauce.

All in all, it's still not a bad rendition - even hubby said it was pretty good, and he normally shuns this dish. Anyone else has recommendations for good oyster omelette?

Portion is infamously small, so be prepared to fork out more, if you want a sizeable dish. They are really fast with orders though. My plate arrived even before I finished looking around and taking photos of the stall!

  5. I suppose crispy bits makes up for it, though oyster small. But chilli sauce weak ah? This dish must have good chilli sauce.

  8. I like the Oyster Omelette at Serangoon Garden Food Centre (not the Chomp Chomp one). The stall is near the Blanco Court Kway Chup stall. Hw uses good quality starch (goey stuff).

  11. The oyster omelette at the hawker centre in clementi central is nice! There are 2 stalls there, go for the one on the same row as the famous western food stall. The satay stall on the same row is good too.
