Cheap and delicious. Starchy and eggy flour mixture with big fat fresh plumpy oyster with no funny taste. Savouriness on the high side and had a nice crisp.

Ah Chuan’s fried oysters (orh luak) are the gold standard in my heart, but I finally found a worthy opponent. Yes, the battle will be legendary. Old Airport Road hawker centre has orh luak stalls in abundance, but it’s only recently that I’ve unearthed the hidden treasure that is Famous Old Airport Fried Oyster. It’s right next door to another fried oyster stall, and apparently they’ve got bad blood between them. Yeah, it’s a cold war now, but it could get real hot real quick.⠀

Besides the classic oyster fry up, they do prawn, squid and a ménage à trois version with all three shellfish in one dish. However, man’s gotta stick with the classics, and this one is one for the history books. A plethora of plump, fresh oysters are lightly seared with the egg & starch concoction to form this greasy, gluttonously gratifying glob of fried fabulousness.⠀

The mix is decidedly more starch than egg, but that’s a good thing as Famous Old Airport pan fries it to a marginally gooey & remarkable crispiness. It might be a smidge greasier than Ah Chuan, but that’s pretty goddamn remarkable already. Each bite gives you an absolutely addictive blend of crunch & chew, and the fluffy eggy chunks are the wildcard that switches the play every so often.⠀

The chili is most certainly run of the mill stuff, being sufficiently spicy & sour to alleviate the effects of the grease in this fry-up, but not particularly memorable in either category. Still, you’re gonna want to flood your orh luak with the chili the same way Bukit Timah got flooded last month. Famous Old Airport Fried Oyster ain’t famous enough for my liking, and they deserve to be a household name for the way they flew my tastebuds on a first class trip to Flavortown.

Oysters with fried egg and cornstarch! In particular, the cornstarch was fried well, being crispy on the outside, but fluffy on the inside! This stall also serves some of the biggest oysters (in orh luak) I have seen, and they were really fresh! Mix everything with the stall's chilli paste and you are good to go!

However, I must say that I thought the serving was pretty small for the $6 serving, and a large part of the price must really be for the oysters. This is not a bad thing, though, if you are planning to order many dishes to try at the hawker centre!

Despite being one of the more famous stalls at Old Airport Road, there wasn't much of a queue and I only had to wait around 10 minutes for my order to be ready.

This Orh Luak have slight crispy edges and the oysters were plump and fresh and paired well with the chili sauce. However, it is abit too greasy for my liking but it is still not bad.

One of the nicer fried oysters around, with reasonable portion. The ratio of egg to starch was just right, without being overly starchy. Despite the long distance to Jurong, it amazingly retained some crispy edges. Star of the dish had to be the fresh, briny oysters that were more than average. Pair with their chili sauce for a spicy kick!

Located at #01-54, I ordered the $6 oyster omelette and was surprised and the amount of oysters that I was served in the dish. Not only that, they were briny, fresh and plump. Just feel like it could have less of the starch and would’ve preferred more egg.
