14 Oyster Omelettes In Singapore You Must Try When Craving Orh Luak

10th October 2023

Best oyster omelettes in Singapore

Oyster omelette, also known as orh luak, is a local favourite that has found its way to the hearts of locals and tourists alike. The dish comprises fresh oysters and an egg and starch batter wok-fried over high heat, creating a medley of different textures despite the simplicity of the ingredients. Orh luak is typically complemented by a runny chilli sauce brightened with calamansi juice. This supper staple is easily found at hawker centres in Singapore. From the East to the West, be sure to check out these oyster omelette stalls that will satiate your cravings!

Chomp Chomp Food Centre might be your go-to spot for those satay cravings, but residing in this famous hawker centre is another gem of a find: the oyster omelette. Priced from $6, Ang Sa Lee Fried Oyster nails this local fare with its generous portion of oysters, and a palatable ratio of starch to egg.

Some call it a tourist trap, others a haven of local delights. Either way, the orh luak found at Hup Kee Fried Oyster Omelette in Newton Circus Food Centre is commendable and starts at just $8. Their version is crisp and not overly starchy. It is also enhanced with the fresh juices of oysters, which have been fried separately. Though good plain, their sharp and tangy chilli sauce gives a punch to each bite!

Featured on Makansutra’s list of hawker legends, Ah Chuan Fried Oyster Omelette’s Orh Luak (from $5) is not to be missed. Think fresh, juicy oysters encased in a dense, yet fluffy omelette with crisp edges.

As one of the cheapest oyster omelettes around Singapore, it is no one wonder this value-for-money dish made it to the sacred list. This stall only opens for a few hours each day though, so be sure to get the opening hours right before you head down!

A product of refining their craft for 30 years and counting, Lim’s Fried Oyster is one of Singapore’s most well-known oyster omelette stalls located in an equally popular food centre, Berseh Food Centre. The Orh Luak here (from $5) is moister than their counterparts but retains its flavour with a compact and crisp edging. Don’t ask us how they do it; we too have no idea how such dichotomies exist so harmoniously either!

The supper spot of the East, Fengshan Market & Food Centre is home to more than just one of Singapore’s best bak chor mee. When you’re here, be sure to also add Orh Luak (from $6) to your supper feast.

The oyster omelette is rich and flavourful, and the stall’s occupation of two units is a strong testament to the success of this crowd-pleaser. The chilli sauce isn’t overly spicy too, so foodies who do not take spicy food well are welcome to dunk the oysters in the sauce to up the shiok factor!

A hidden, inconspicuous gem in the popular Old Airport Road Food Centre is the fried oyster omelette by Xing Li Cooked Food. From $6, you get a generous serving of oysters that are not overcooked, with their juices well-retained. The egg omelette itself is rich and fluffy, and not overly starchy. There is also the Oyster Egg (from $6) to skip the gummy texture altogether. Both versions draw long queues─a common sight at this hawker hothouse.

Hougang Fried Oyster stands out from the crowd as paying just $6 gets you a heaping portion of oysters in your orh luak.

Halal-certified char kway teow, carrot cake, and oyster omelettes are a rare sight in Singapore, but thankfully, there is Green Sky Fried Kway Teow to fill that gap. A portion starts from $5, and you get a super crispy oyster omelette to go with. Expect slightly charred, crunchy bits of egg to offset the chewy potato starch and oysters with every serving here.

Michelin Bib Gourmand awardee Song Kee Fried Oyster is where it’s at for delicious oyster omelette in the East. You’ll have to brave a queue that’s upwards of half an hour to order your portion, but fans believe it’s well worth the wait—the orh luak comes with just the right balance of fluffy eggs and pockets of gooey starch balls. The oysters are also very briney and fresh. Song Kee makes their fried oyster omelette wet-style, so expect a bit of gravy, rather than crispy fried bits of egg, in your serving.

Address: 1220 East Coast Park, #01-15 East Coast Lagoon Food Village, Singapore 468960
Opening hours: Thurs-Tue 4:30pm to 9pm

11. Hock Kee

When we think of orh luak, wet-style isn’t typically what comes to mind. However, having orh jian served in a runnier omelette, rather than a crispy bed of fried egg, is in line with how the dish’s Chinese origins. While most orh luak hawkers have deviated from the original, Hock Kee is still keeping the tradition alive with their Tang Shan Fried Oyster, which they’ve been selling for over a decade now. Priced from $6, each serving is fried with a generous amount of potato starch to achieve its runnier texture. Don’t forget to liberally douse your serving with their house-made chilli sauce!

Address: 49A Serangoon Garden Way, #01-19, Singapore 555945
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 7:15am to 2pm, 5:45pm to 10pm

12. Heng

Michelin Bib Gourmand stall Heng has been frying up orh jian since 1971, and they’re still going strong. They’re known for selling carrot cake, char kway teow, and oyster omelette here, so if you’re really in the mood for a sinful meal, you can have top-tier renditions of all three dishes. If it’s just their orh luak you’re looking for, then Heng is where it’s at for an omelette that is lighter on starch, so it’s really just plump oysters and fried egg doing the heavy lifting on the flavour front. Prices start at $6.

For oyster omelette with a bit of a twist, pay a visit to Ghim Guan, a hidden gem in Circuit Road Market. Portions start at $8 here for their Oyster Omelette, and you have the option of enjoying this as is or having a ladleful of house-made sambal poured over your orh jian for a super spicy kick. It’s worth noting that the Oyster Omelette here is all-egg and has no starch, so if you prefer your order with some of the latter, you should get their Fried Oyster (from $5) instead.
