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.


01-26 – Mountbatten, Singapore

Yeah I found it funny too, there isn’t any name for this stall but 4 huge ass digits. And I was looking for some good fried oyster. This stall seems like jack-of-all-trades selling so many fried items, but I tried it nevertheless.

Rating: 4.5/5

Taste: Surprisingly, the taste was pretty good! The crisp on the outer layers makes it pretty close to authenticity. Very nice sourish chilli sauce and good size oysters too! Good thing is, the lady took her time to fry and made it nice!

Portion: Average.

Service: Self-service…

Ambience: On the second row, air no good.

Price: $5

RTE: Probably. But I prefer the Punggol one at the back row.

Location: Old Kallang Airport Food Center #01-26.

Katong Fried Oyster (加東劉記蠔煎) – Bedok, Singapore

Haha bedok again. This stall of Fried Oyster is worth mentioning ‘cos the way they fry it is the right way for that awesome crisp on the outside. Have you tried this before?

Fried Oyster Stall #01-53 – Maxwell Market, Singapore

I was at Maxwell Market recently and was craving for some Fried Oyster when I spotted this stall #01-53. This is a One-Man-Operation stall apparently sells everything that is hawker fried…

The no name stall offering all the fried foods!

So I thought the food shouldn’t be that bad right? I was so wrong. The fried oyster is all chunked up and soggy. And above all, had to wait for 15 mins and paid $6 for a miserable plate. So the saying must be right… Jack of all trades, master of none?

See all the lumps!

I’m sharing this so that none of my readers will be conned by such poor culinary. For $6 I believe I should be getting at least better Fried Oyster than this!

友记传统小吃 @ 327 Hougang Avenue 5

I reckon it’s about time to write about good food stalls around where I live. Hougang despite the aging estate, has newly renovated coffeeshops to cater to the ever changing demanding taste buds of Singaporeans. This coffeeshop at block 327 was renovated 2 years back and have been doing very well since cos of the introduction of many new stalls while retaining the old ones. I was there one of the nights with my friends for dinner and knowing how much I miss Fried Oyster, I ordered from this stall which was not there before the renovation.

The Stall
The cooking took sometime because they really took the time to fry it. And because they took the time to fry it, the flour part is super crispy and the flavour was immense.
My dinner of Braised Duck Rice With Egg. Only $3! Where on earth can you still get $3 for duck rice with egg???

Rating: 4/5. Oyster too little… counted like only 4pcs.

Taste: Fried Oyster taste really good even though the oysters were miserably little. A good Fried Oyster is actually not in the oyster but in the flour and egg combination together with fish sauce. Duck rice is also cheap and nice. Must try!

Portion: Slightly above average.

Price: $3 for duck rice and $4 for fried oyster!

RTE: Hell yeah!

Location: Block 327 Hougang avenue 5.
