What exactly is fried oyster? A.k.a Orh Jian or Orh Luak.
Orh Luak is simply cooked using batter, made with mixture of tapioca starch, all-purpose flour and sweet potato starch and added ingredients like eggs, fish sauce and importantly the star item, oyster. 😀
This is one of those traditional food item which you can find easily in hawker centre or neighbourhood coffee shop.
There are a lot of variations when it comes to Orh Luak. Some stall holders offers seafood items like prawns or squids as alternative ingredients whereas some prefer to have oyster omelette to avoid the gooey batter.
There is this particular stall located in Berseh Food Centre, Lim’s Fried Oyster that serves up tasty and well executed Orh Luak.
You may be pleased to know that the oysters served here is huge. You can’t miss it by its sheer XL size. 😀 Not forgetting the power chilli dipping sauce that gives it the extra punch too. This is without a doubt one of those stall that I will return to when I needed my Orh Luak fix.
So, what makes this stall unique?
To me, I believe the main differentiating factor lies with the batter and the control of the fire by the person cooking it.
If you have been to this stall, hope you find it worth your while to do so. If you have not, why not give it a try and see if it is as good as your favourite stall that you often patronizes.
