Ah Hock Fried Oyster Hougaug – sinfully delicious 亚福蠔煎后港
1927 – Perhaps our grandparents’ generation? That was the year when Ah Hock Fried Oyster Hougaug whipped out the first plate of the oyster omelette, any drift in the taste compared to the early days? Is it the same nostalgia taste as of in the 1927? No one can tell and a question will likely remain unanswered forever.
The stall supposed to start operation at 12 noon per the signboard, the stall light was not turned on till 12.45pm, reason cited by the helpers was that the chef has not arrived and norm for him to be late! ?? Haughtiness of the chef was the first impression given to us.
We ordered the standard oyster omelette or Orh Jian, good oyster omelette is a combination of right proportion of eggs, flour and the freshness of the oyster and the accompaniment chili sauce. The frying skills of the chef and the right seasoning are another crucial factor to determine how the luscious the omelette can be.
The oyster omelette was a good proportion of flour and eggs, though the serving size could be a little small for the price we paid. The oysters were bigger and fresh if compared to other oyster omelette stalls. We too like the slight charred surface with the crispness which complemented the fresh oysters well. Overall, the fragrance was additive and dipping into the homemade chili sauce made this cholesterol rich concoction a sumptuous and yummy delight to cheer about.
At time it could be just too feeble for oneself to stand up resisting this artery clogging creation, be it you are lived to eat or eat to live, it was a palatable dish that worth to patronise.
