Malaysia Boleh! at Jurong Point (Singapore) Oh Chien (Oyster Omelette)
I love Oh Chien 蚵煎 (Fried Oyster Omelette) but I hardly eat it, nowadays. At middle age, I am heeding the doctor's orders to watch that grease and cholesterol closely :P
So, I am very picky about which Oh Chien 蚵煎 stall I eat at, because since I rarely eat it, it might as well be the best :P
I decided to give the oh chien stall at Malaysia Boleh! a try after hearing good reviews from my foodie kakis (friends).
The oh chien stall at Malaysia Boleh! food court is run by Ah Peng from Ipoh.
Ah Peng may be young but watching him at work, I saw that his wok work and handling of the fire was quite deft.
The clanging when the spatula strikes the iron pan, the roar of the gas jet and the dramatic tongue of orange flames was a sight to behold. I watched with childlike wonder as Ah Peng reminded me of those "one man band" musicians in action. But, I wonder how many other people in the queue noticed :P
Here's the oh chien from Ah Peng's wok.
The fluffy egg omelette was topped with several fat oysters, parsley and chopped spring onions.
The savoury fat oysters were big and succulent.
The omelette's soft egginess was balanced by a little bit of gummy fried tapioca batter.
Malaysia Boleh! got the recipe for this oh chien from a famous stall in Lorong Selamat in Penang. The style and taste is very similar to the famous oh chien stall in Meldrum Walk, Johor Bahru.
That's me attacking the last juicy oyster on my plate. This can set off insatiable cravings...... for oh chien.
The chili sauce is tangy and spicy. I didn't really need this.
If you live in Singapore, there is no need to go to Penang or Johor for good oh chien. Malaysia Boleh! also got (as they say in Singapore).
