Ah Chuan Fried Oyster Omelette – Toa Payoh, Singapore

Toa Payoh has many hidden gems (food of course) and I happen to get to know about this stall which apparently has been there for the longest time. Obviously for a non-TP resident, I wouldn’t know until someone tells me about it.

So I was planning my visit. I was told they are closed on Tuesdays, the same day as my off day. And I can’t visit them on any other days ‘cos they are opened only from 1.30pm to 5pm!!! I was thinking, wow, I like this kind of work also, less than 8hrs a day! So when I got my Monsays off too, I seize the opportunity to visit them the following week.

Look at the amount of garnishings on top!

After visiting them then i realized why they are opening so short hours daily. Reason is they are in semi-retirement mode, just passing time doing when they love and serving their regular diehard fans. At the same time, it made me realize also during this operational hours, they were frying non-stop and quality and service were not compromised.
Chilli sauce slightly sweet, spicy and sour. very nicely balance to boost your taste buds.
I’m a vacuum cleaner and I’m proud of it. It’s a way to show your appreciation of the good food and not wasting food at the same time!

Rating: 5/5. Prolly one of the best in Singapore by far.

Taste: Authentic like how I tasted when I was young. If you like it a little more crispy on the outside, request for it. But by default it’s already lightly crisp and tender inside.

Portion: Average

Service: Self-service

Ambience: Hawker Center but very high ceiling and good natural lighting.

Price: $4, $5 or $8. My portion of $5 comes with 8 oysters inside. 

RTE: Yes definitely!

Location: 22 Toa Payoh Lorong 7 Wet Market And Hawker Centre. Hours: 1.30pm to 5pm. Closed on Tuesdays.
