From the Burpple community

For over 32 years, this elderly wife-husband team of Mdm Lim Suan Eng and Mr Ong Lim Chong have been delighting customers with 2 dishes; their signature oyster omelette and char kway teow.
.
With her vast experience, Mdm Lim handles the frying of the CKT, doneness can be requested (more wet or dry, more or less char), evident of her skill - I opted for the dry savoury version, which carried robust smoky savoury salty sweet flavour.
.
Garnished with tender fish cake, crunchy chye sim / chinese flowering cabbage, crisp bean sprouts, wispy egg, chewy lup cheong / dried cured pork sausage, and bouncy blood cockles.
.
Their home made chili, which contains fresh red chili, garlic, lime juice, and pork lard(!), offers a bright spicy savoury sour kick, shiok.

If you like your oyster omelette crispy, then this is one stall you gotta try. I ordered the small portion ($5.50) which was already pretty substantial! It's filled with crispy bits that were so satisfying, especially with the charred flavour. The oyster were fresh and succulent as well. Totally something I will eat everytime I am in Hougang!

Love the mix of charred and gooey bits, but the spotlight is definitely the super fresh and plump oysters. I’m still not a 100% fan of the gooey bits cos it can get a bit jelak at times, but overall it’s still delish. The only letdown is the watery bland-tasting chilli— not sure if that’s the norm or we caught them on a bad day. Will return if in the area!

This was a really good plate of Orh Lua! The egg is fried till really crispy with a slight wok hei taste, and comes with fresh and plump oysters! Love the tangy chilli sauce too. Sinfully good!

yummmz! Papa the charkwayteow fanatic gives his approval to the wokhei and generous serving of ingredients that goes into this plate of CKT. Oysters were plump and fresh (so so so fresh!) But instead adding oysters to your CKT, you should consider getting a plate of crispy fried oyster egg instead! So, incredibly yums! Love how there’s a generous serving of egg - it gets disappointing when CKT is all noodles with little egg. Every mouthful comes with egg bits - this is how eggy the dish is! Uncle has also added some greens and loadsa taugay- perfect to rub off some ‘sin’ ... if you choose to be delusional for a while. On a serious note tho, it’s not oily- totally no oily after taste!
