Fu Zhou Poh Hwa Oyster Cake @ Jalan Beseh Food Center

12:00 PM , 0 Comments


Oyster cakes are pasar malam food for me, strangely. I don't remember growing up with a specific stall in mind but they all taste just as good - anything deep fried and eaten hot hardly tastes as bad anyway. Between our local variations of oyster omelette and cake, I stand firm by the latter for satisfaction.

Chanced upon Poh Hwa Oyster Cake after the first misadventure with One Kueh At A Time, heck the 1030am time stamp, anything is a good time for oyster cake.

Fried on demand and by piece, it is no simple feat - as back breaking as frying doughsticks methinks. Each piece gets lovingly placed into the wok ful of boiling oil and carefully watched over as it turns a beautiful golden brown.


$1.80 for the cake of crispy gold, loved the crunchy exterior and smushy innards. A mixture of chopped greens, minced meat, a single prawn and perfectly cooked oyster - nah, who needs Master Chef for such fancy pancy culinary skills? I'm not sure how the cook makes sure each oyster is not over cooked but that cake was sublime. Diet out of the window and dunk the chilli in, mamma mia.

Stopping at one took much resistance, I figure I could gave gotten away with at least 4 or 5 of these babies had it not been for the fact I already had breakfast and was going for lunch.
