The fried oyster ($5) from Lim’s Fried Oyster is throughly infused with wok hei and chilli oil fragrance🤤 The oysters are plump and creamy, and the tangy chilli sauce helps to keep the greasiness at bay. Although this is not the super crispy type of fried oyster, this is still one delicious plate of fried oyster that is worth the wait!

I simply adore the oyster cakes ($2.30) from Fu Zhou Poh Hwa Oyster Cake at Berseh Food Centre (#02-34)😍 I grew up snacking on oyster cakes whenever my dad dabao them home for tea break and the ones from this stall are sooo good. The batter is super thin, crispy and fragrant with a hint of sweetness. The pillowy oyster cakes are stuffed with a generous amount of well-seasoned minced meat, prawns and oysters and topped with fried peanuts or anchovies. Hands down my all-time favourite hawker snack 🙌🏻!

I love pig trotter jelly, but I have not seen or tried shark jelly before! The cold pig trotter jelly ($5) and shark jelly ($5) from Lao Liang Pig Trotter Jelly & Shark Meat at Berseh Food Centre (#02-37) are bouncy and refreshing, and I like how the texture and natural sweetness of the shark meat come through the jelly. The accompanying chilli sauce is too sweet for my liking, but the savoury jelly goes very well with the garlicky and tangy kway chap chilli sauce that is also available at the stall.

The kway chap ($4/pax, $0.50 for kway) is not bad too - the pork organs are cleaned well and braised to the right texture, the chilli sauce is on point and the soup has a slight sweet undertone which balances the savoury braise sauce. My only wish is for the tau pok to be a little softer.

Overall, I enjoyed this meal more than I expected and it’s nice to find something that stands out from run-of-the-mill hawker food!
