Eat Newton’s Hao Jian at Tanglin Fried Oyster Omelette
Do you remember what CRA ate at the hawker?
I think it may be, but what I do know is that those are screaming out to me!
Tanglin Fried Oyster Omelette
- Newton Hawker Center
- Tasty Not So Chewy Oyster Omelettes
- Plenty of Neighboring Food Choices
Who doesn’t love surf and turf! The versatile turf egg and the tasty surf oyster! By themselves they are delicious, but together when cooked just right… They are PERFECT!
The oyster omelette is a dish that has been adapted to nearly every culture in Southeast Asia. Honestly, I’m sure that both ingredients are enjoyed around the world. This dish is known for their own cultural characteristics for both chewiness and crispness while bringing the natural flavors of egg and oyster to the forefront.
But striking that perfect balance between gooey and crunchy is a delicate balancing act; tasting all the regional preferences can be an adventure in all of it’s own.
What is It
Between the hawkers there can be different ratios of chewy and gooey. At the Newton Hawker Center they are known for a number of dishes:
- Chicken Wings
- Craft Beer
- And Oyster Omelette
This particular hawker was less gooey and more crispy; just the way Nadia likes it! Other than this they also serve:
- Fried Oyster
- Fried Hokkien Mee
- Fried Kuay Teow
- Carrot Cake
Where is It
This hawker is #47 at Newton Hawker (unless they moved or closed). Just walk around the inside ring of hawkers in the inner courtyard area till you see that number and picture
What to Do There
Go up to them and try a dish for yourself. Heck, you’re at a hawker center so go around and try the different dishes that scream out to you.
If you like this to be more chewy then, maybe you can ask them to make it more chewy but perhaps you’d be better served just trying other oyster omelette stalls to see if their ratios are more suitable to your palate.
More importantly, being out there… You might find a dish that suits you the best! Hopefully you do and you can tell me all about it.
