Made this fried oyster omelette quite sometimes ago actually..When I shop for my weekly groceries , terjumpa the frozen oyster, since I rarely see the fresh ones,... I have heard of this fried oyster omelette during those days when I was still working..I can say it is one of those favourite Chinese snacks here in Singapore...my colleagues who are mostly Chinese, would usually ordered this from the hawker's centre and they would eat them in the office...well since I am not sure of the halal status of the food, normally I would turned my friends offer down to sample some..hehe..
This time, I tried frying them myself..of course follow recipelah... well, I loveeeee this snacks/appertiser..sedappp...surprisingly it just passed my parents throats easily..and commented 'boleh tahan sedap'..(not bad ah!!")..so if you come across the fresh ones, you should grab some and try this fried oyster omelette yourself..
