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!

Managed to try all the GELATO ($3.90/$7.60/$11.30) flavours! These were my favourites:

- White Chrysanthemum & Goji Berries (light & refreshing)
- Non-dairy Dark Chocolate (very rich & slightly creamy even though it’s dairy-free!)
- Pistachio (sufficiently nutty & creamy)
- Salted Caramel with Popcorn (a good sweet-salty balance)

I loved the WAFFLES’ ($5/$8.90 single scoop/$12.69 double scoop) chewiness & crisp on the edges! But I did find it too dense and difficult to cut through

Had their buffet which include not only their chicken wings, but fries and spam rice ball too. All of it is generally ok but it will be good if they include more items in the buffet

Tender, juicy on the inside. Light & crispy on the outside.

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!

Calling all oyster omelette lovers😍, here’s a plate of Orh Luak ($5/$6) that will surely leave you craving🤤 for more!

Tucked away in a small coffeeshop at Blk 435A Hougang Ave 8, this humble stall is helmed by an elderly couple👫, where the uncle will fry up the oyster omelettes while his wife whip up plates of fried kway teow. While this might not be the most photogenic📸 plate of Orh Luak, you can be sure it won’t disappoint your tastebuds😋.

P.S. If I counted correctly, there was about 8 plump Korean oysters🦪 for the $6 plate!

📍Hougang Fried Oyster And Char Kway Teow.
Block 453 hougang avenue 8.


I came here for their novel dishes, such as ma la pasta and lava egg burger, but most were off their menu. This pasta was al dente and deserves praise, but the salted egg was more sweet than anything. Both the fish and the execution were flawless.

Back at one of our regular spots for orh luak - great if you’re a fan of more crisp versions. It’s seasoned very well and comes with these plump creamy oysters. Still haven’t got to try, but also heard good things about their char kway teow!


Loved the spice of the UFO Topokki but the fried squid was quite disappointing - was too tough to chew and not crispy. Bulgogi fries was good though.

⭐️ 2.5/5, book in advance as it is a small place!

Can’t really taste the truffle but it was a good and generous portion of thick french fries.
