Anyone remembers ”The taste of Fengshan – heavenly! #reasontowin”?
The hawker dish of “Orh Luak” (or Fried Oyster Omelette) was dragged into politics a few years ago, and it certainly made some of the stalls at Bedok 85 aka Fengshan Food Centre even more popular.
One of the busiest stalls at Fengshan Market and Food Centre, this 85 Bedok North Fried Oyster place gets never-ending orders up till late at night. It closes at 2am daily.
It is also listed with a “Michelin Plate” – a distinction given to eateries serving a good meal that’s carefully prepared using fresh ingredients, and priced under $50. In the Michelin Guide, you’ll see the plate icon beside the name of the establishment.
Are you thinking, ”Michelin? Really?”
85 Bedok North Fried Oyster serves more than just Orh Luak, and also includes White or Black Carrot Cake ($2.50, $3), Fresh Cockles Kway Teow ($3, $4), and Fried Hokkien Mee ($3.50, $4, $5).
It occupies two stalls, and quite hard to miss.
The stall appears to be quite popular among supper-goers, and it is not difficult finding groups ordering a plate or two to satisfy their cravings.
You can get your orders in around 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the time of your visit. The medium sized serving is good for sharing or eaten solo for some self-indulgence.
Their Orh Luak ($5, $8) was visually rich in colours, featuring plump oysters and eggs topped with some fresh Chinese parsley.
Not bad, not fantastic.
Their style of frying the egg happens to be part crisp and part fluffy. However, it was neither particularly crisp nor fluffy, and could be better if it went more on the crisp side.
For weight-watchers, take note that this could be slightly oily, perhaps not so controlled on the grease level as they seemed to fry in bigger batches.
You may need to add a bit of their chili sauce, which is on the mild side, not the fiery-bring-me-the-water type.
The stall also serves up “Oyster Omelette” ($5, $8) of folded omelette, slathered with sambal sauce on top and a few pieces of soft, almost soggy, oysters.
A dish that’s prone to jelak, this is best shared with your eating pals.
Although they are known for their fried oysters, they also serve up Fried Hokkien Mee.
Okay. When I usually go for Hokkien Mee, I typically avoid those which sell everything-under-the-roof (sorry if your stall happens to be one of these, it’s just personal preference.)
And so this Hokkien Mee was pretty much on the average side – could do with more flavourful stock and wok-hei, and perhaps saving the calories for the Orh Luak, could be a better option. Unless you really having cravings.
