85 Bedok North Fried Oyster

Helmed by former seafood restaurant chef Ng Soon Huat, 85 Bedok North Fried Oyster (勿洛北85蚝煎) began life 18 years ago at then already thriving east side supper haunt Fengshan Food Centre, expanding over time to lease adjoining stalls that most fortunately command prominent street frontage (it has since further enacted satellite presences in Hougang, Kovan and Sengkang). The humble orh luak  (or orh neng, the sister version sans tapioca starch) being ceaselessly whipped up all night long aside, a roster of other local favourites such as fried kway teow, carrot cake and fried hokkien prawn mee are also sold here.

85 Bedok North Fried Oyster opens daily from 4pm-2am.

What knocked our socks off:

The Fried Kway Teow was palate-titillating TIGHT - moist, springy flat rice noodles charred to a heady sweet T leapt out at taste buds amidst an emulsive, soy (sauce) sozzled bosom of yellow mee, blood cockles and lup cheong bits.

Fried Kway Teow ($3/$4)

The Fried Oyster dish which trailed slightly behind warranted positive mention nevertheless - effusively fresh cum succulent mollusks cocooned within one omeletty, amylaceous lattice did pull off crispy flavourful no doubt, but the extravasating gooeyness ...... just ew. Accompanying chilli was too mild for our liking either, in case you asked.

Fried Oyster ($5/$8/$10)

Other items sampled but turned out to be non-events:

Carrot Cake ($2.50/$3)

91 Fried Kway Teow Mee

Michelin Plate honoree 91 Fried Kway Teow Mee's salubrious spin on an all time artery-clogging favourite of Singaporeans is drawing droves these days, alas we remain skeptical: what are the odds of sinful curtailed (no pork lard, no lup cheong - just lotsa chye sim, few blood cockles plus crispy lancelet thrown in) proximating them gustatory pleasures beknownst to relishing the good ol'? .......

Swee Guan Hokkien Mee

Swee Guan Hokkien Mee's decades-old presence (established since 1968) inside Xing Lian Eating House is bare bones ancient: single cramped frying cubicle with dilapidated signboard unceremoniously fastened on top looking downright rickety......

Chong Pang Huat

Satay sellers are a dime a dozen in Singapore since forever, with most just eking out hushed, microscopic existences across generations. Chong Pang Huat's decade-old franchise network of unfamilial shake 'n bake outlets is therefore somewhat an anomaly; still we'd heard largely good things despite never having gotten around to tasting their fare. Until a recent fortuitous late evening that is,......
