The first instagram photo of Worker’s Party chairperson Sylvia Lim tucking away at Orh Luak (Oyster Omelette) earned her some space on the papers, speculations and remarks all over.
An (innocent) photo that launched a thousand ships. So many MPs posted photos of hawker food, but also never end up in the papers.
Must be because it is at the popular Feng Shan Food Centre otherwise known as Bedok 85, matched with the caption “The taste of Fengshan – heavenly! #reasontowin”
People use hashtag for various reasons – for humour, to gain followers, it was a typo, etc etc. The same when we see #OOTDs with #gorgeous #goodlooking #cute #hottieoftheday and you know they don’t quite mean what they type.
Anyway, I am more interested in the food.
Fengshan Food Centre has been famous for its Bar Chor Mee, BBQ Chicken Wings, Pork Porridge, Stingray and other local delicacies. The kind of place that you go at midnight and can even find people from the West (meaning Jurong, NTU) supper-ing there.
Seeing that yellow plate on the photo, I spontaneously went on a search. Emm… the Orh Luak didn’t look too inspiring.
Instead I went for the Bedok North 85 Fried Oyster, occupying two stalls, with 7-8 staff in red polo shirts taking orders, preparing and frying. WAH, they have more staff than some restaurants in Singapore have.
The workers at the stall were quite ‘media-savvy’. “Come take more photos, put them online, write good things ah…”

Portions were generous for $3, though I went on a search for 3-4 plump oysters. The Orh Luak was the crisp, starchy kind, drenched in oil that could send you to grease-land. Used to be better, right?
There are many good hawker stalls at Bedok North 85. The taste of Fengshan is really heavenly. #reasonstoeat
