Fried oyster omelette, or as the locals call it, orh ah jian, is a savoury dish that you can easily find in hawker centres all over Singapore. Juicy, fresh oysters atop a bed of crispy egg batter fried to perfection, this delicacy is definitely hard to resist!

The ingredients of oyster omelette are always the same, so what makes each of these stalls different is the batter they use and the control of the fire—to get a crispy exterior and that signature wok hei flavour. For oyster omelette that will literally change your life, here is our list of 8 oyster omelette stalls in Singapore.

Do a google search on the best oyster omelettes and you can easily find Ah Chuan Fried Oyster Omelette on the list. Located within Kim Keat Palm Market and Food Centre, this long-established stall has made a name for itself with its traditional oyster omelette.

The dense crisp of the fried omelette makes it extra savoury and the generous amount of juicy, fresh oysters they put in makes every bite of this dish a wonderful delight. Be sure to be there early if you want to get your hands on the tasty orh jian because this stall only operates for about 3 hours each day.

Chomp Chomp Oyster Omelette


Quit the calorie counting and order up a plate of this eggy, starchy dish dotted with plump, saline oysters at Ang Sa Li, which is located at the famous Chomp Chomp Food Centre. Each bite of the omelette reveals a good blend of crispy and chewy starch bits, accompanied by coriander leaves and a tangy chilli sauce at the side.

Once the starch is crispy, the oysters are added and the pan bursts into tongues of fire that lick the luscious molluscs with its smoky aroma! The zesty chilli sauce that accompanied this brilliant omelette packed a punch, which really cut through the distinct briny flavour of the oysters.

Oyster lovers, you are in for a treat! The folks at Bedok 85 Fried Oyster Omelette offers a generous amount of unbelievably plump and fresh oysters which are fried together with the yummy eggs batter.

We liked that the egg was evenly mixed for a consistent omelette that is fried over a large fire for that crispy edge and fluffy texture within. The huge oysters are not overly pan-fried, thus leaving them moist and plump, which added a nice bite to it.

Located in the very accessible Seah Im Food Centre, Cheng Ji Xia Mian Hao Jian might be well known for their Hokkien Mee but their Oyster Omelette puts up a good fight as well.

Fried till the edges are slightly crisp and golden brown, each mouthful of oyster omelette brings out a marriage of flavours especially with the fresh oysters and their homemade chilli sauce at the side.

Hock Kee Fried Oyster Tang Shen 1


Here at this humble stall located in Serangoon Gardens, you can get a version of fried oyster omelette that is a tad different from conventional types. Their version, which the owner claim is the traditional version, is a wetter, gooier rendition known as Tang Shan fried oyster.

Huat Heng Fried Oyster

Featured in the Michelin Guide Singapore, Huat Heng Fried Oyster has made a name for itself for its traditional oyster omelette. Situated in Whampoa Drive Hawker Centre that is well known for good food, this place certainly lives up to the standards–worthy of being mentioned in the Michelin Guide.

Starch is mixed into the egg batter while whipping up the omelette, which gives it a thick consistency. Each bite was brimming with wok hei and the fat and juicy oysters they give for each plate makes every bite an absolute joy. Shout out to the chilli that is sour enough to cut through the grease without being harsh on the palate.

Having been around for 4 decades now, Lim’s Fried Oyster Omelette brings a nostalgic feel that makes it stand out amongst the others. Furthermore, the plump and succulent oysters they use are freshly imported from Korea, which is larger as compared to other stalls.

Each bite of the oyster omelette was made up of crispy and charred skin, enveloping a chunk of gooey potato starch. What is lovely about this place is that they add a hint of chilli sauce–one that brims with a fragrant aroma of dried shrimps–to the mix while frying, and an additional side of the piquant chilli sauce as a dip on the side.

Simon Road Oyster Omelette

Tucked in an unassuming corner of Simon Road, Simon Road Oyster Omelette has gained a loyal fan base for having been around for more than 30 years. Mr Lim Poh Pin now helms the stall, after his father passed away last year. Even though the taste was not quite on par with the standards of his dad’s, it is definitely getting there.

Wonderfully crispy and bursting with savoury flavour, the ratio of eggs to starch is just perfect, well proportioned to give a balanced taste. The oysters were sufficiently plump and juicy, which gave a gastronomic blend of crisp and soft texture from the omelette and oysters.
