Oyster Omelette

$12.00 · 10 Reviews

[ Food Week — Heritage Restaurants ] Singapore’s vibrant F&B scene cannot exist without the multiplicity of establishments that cater a variety of gastronomical experiences. Be it sinful local delights, elegant fine dining, or reliable international chains — these seemingly disparate segments form a cohesive, spirited whole that we have grown to love, but also take for granted.

As we extol the zeal and vigour of SG’s F&B, one group continues to be overshadowed by the accessibility of hawkers and the convenience of large chains: Heritage restaurants. (I’m guilty of this too — until the recent couple of years, I don’t think I’ve ever set foot in any of these.)

Mostly born during a period of entrepreneurial exuberance and during the cusp of burgeoning globalisation, these heritage restaurants are often a product of coupling the history of one’s rich cultural roots with SG’s unique brand of multiculturalism. The result is flavours that are reminiscent of an era long past, yet still familiar enough to evoke a sense of home, especially for those whose own history and heritage intersects these restaurants’.

And for many of us, these places stand as one of the last remaining pillars between a history we either have never known or aren’t privy to, and the sterile homogeneity of modernity.

It is this inimitable position of heritage restaurants that make them so valuable — they are living keystones of our history, and it’d be a shame to forsake them in favour of shiny new concepts that pander to aesthetics.

For those looking for their first foray into heritage restaurant, Beng Hiang (est 1978) is a friendly option for folks who enjoy old-school Hokkien dishes served with the boisterous flourish of 70-80s HK restaurants.

I’ve written about their dishes in detail prior, so here is a quick summary of what your first visit can look like:
Crispy Roasted Chicken ($20 for half/$38 for whole) — go away KFC, this is a must-get! No seriously, this puts everyone else to shame ok.
Traditional Hokkien Noodles ($10/$14/$18) — their signature; filled with goodies!
Oyster Omelette ($15/$28) — plump and juicy, yum!

For comparison, a meal like that will be a good 30-40% cheaper than at major chains. And you get larger portions too!

Crispy and the oyster is big and juicy

I ❤️ The Year-End Festive Holidays! [Part III]
It’s feasting time in old school Hokkien-style @ Beng Hiang Restaurant. One of their ⭐️ dishes has got to be the oyster omelette which is incredibly light and crispy. It is so good that we can’t stop munching on it. Another of their ⭐️ dish is the fish maw thick soup with crab meat. This delicious & hearty soup loads with large chunks of fish maw and crab meat as well as a raw egg [YUM!]. Stir in the raw egg and drizzle some black vinegar for an extra oomph!

This dish is a must order for us whenever we dine at Beng Hiang but apart from this dish, we have been first hand observers of the decline of this Hokkien cuisine institution. The oysters are plump and fresh, while the dish was crispy yet light. Could do with more eggs though. But the Chilli that was drizzled over the dish added oomph to it. Let's hope this dish remains to be as tasty.

They managed to replicate the interior of the Amoy street restaurant, you won't be able to tell that this is no longer the original restaurant at Amoy Street. Missed out the picture of the fish maw soup. I recommend the oyster omelette, fish maw soup and ngoh hiang/he Zhou here. #burpple #BurppleGotJio #hokkienrestaurant #hokkienfood

Another star dish of the restaurant that you will find sitting on most tables, this oyster omelette is definitely different from the rest you've tried! I love this dish for its super crispy omelette with a sweet tasting chili sauce that compliments it so well. Oysters were fresh and juicy. It's funny how everyone was grabbing the crispy parts instead of the oyster and the small portion was surely insufficient! But if you're not a fan of crispy oyster omelette, then this is something you should steer clear. If not, dig in!!! #BurppleBestChinese
