Oyster Omelette

I love the Oh Chean (蠔煎) or oyster omelette I had tonight. The oyster are so gigantic big and juicy. Tua-tua liap. Think about it also I can salivate.

*Slurp*

Syiok-nye... it's been such a long time since I've had oh chean. :(

Doreen said...

Looks delicious but how come looks different one? I like those Oh Chean that is in one whole piece with crispy sides. *drool*

Chen said...

hcpen,
Yeah, good stuff, and especially when eating together with the hot chilli sauce.

day dreamer,
Hehe, the next time u come to Penang, don't forget to eat it. ;)

doreen,
The type of oh chean u mentioned r the one commonly seen in Sarawak. This is the teochew type (the egg omelette was mixed with starch), and commonly seen in Penang. We serve this with chilli sauce. I prefer this type of oh chean than the crispy whole piece oh chean. :)

Chen said...

VampireM,
Had this from one of the stall infront of Sin Kim San kopitiam (at the junction between Rangoon Road and Macalister Road). There are few stalls selling oh chean there, need to order from the correct stall. :)

Sarawakiana
The juicy Oh Chean. We had oh chean again last Thursday.

Come and visit Penang again lah one of these days, and savour the Penang delicacies again. :)

Chen said...

iml,
Penang has lotsa nice and yummy food. Btw, can u get oh chean in Singapore? :)

keeyit,
Is the Malacca oh chean the same as the one in Penang, Teochew style? I have never tasted oh chean in Malacca. The oh chean in Sarawak is cooked differently. :)

misti,
Older folk? U r not old lah, Misti.

Btw, ya.. this dish is high in cholesterol. Oyster + Egg, and summore... fried with oil. But most importantly don't eat it too frequent loh :)

Chen said...

red sponge,
Ya, very yummy photo. Can even savour with your eyes (like what Pink Cotton always say). LOL

pink winnie,
Most of the stalls here serve oh chean with small oysters. But this stall give big oysters with similar price as other stalls. Hence value for $$$. :)

jason,
LOL. As long as don't eat very frequently okie lah. Btw, we only eat out like once or twice a week, not everyday lah. :P

kyh said...

Kenny Ng said...

Ahhh... Beh Tahan!!! Coming back to eat this very soon!!!

Terry said...

Can anyone tells me where in your location in Malaysia can I find the best OO eatery place?

I love the OO but not the super high cholestrol that comes with it. Hehehe!

Redsponge said...

Happy Anniversary! :)

Darren said...

Yummy yummy.... i want it too... One fried oyster please...

QuaChee said...

loooks good! :)

Chen said...

butt,
come lah to Penang :)

kyh,
Hehehe... but then, the starchy egg minus the oyster if eat with spicy chilli sauce is equally nice too.

kenny,
Must eat all the nice Penang food before u go back to the far away land again. :)

terry,
Each states has different type of food. But the states in Malaysia with nice food are such as Georgetown in Penang and Ipoh in Perak.

Redsponge,
Wow, u still remember my wedding anniversary..
Thanks Redsponge. :)

Darren & QuaChee,
Ya, this is one of the dishes that I will always order if i eat at that hawker place. :)
