The Mountain Tortoise and the U.F.O. Oyster Pancake
06 SEPT 2008
Don't see alot of Oyster Pancake around anymore... and the first review did not reflect what I believed to be the 2 key items sold by the stall.
Anyway, Auntie serving was good enough to tell me to go sit down and she will bring it to where I am sitting (2 rows away from the Famous Lor Mee Stall).
Now... the food...
Oyster Pancake [8.5/10]
These deep-fried batter thingy are shaped like a disc and has a nickname of "UFO". Within the batter, there are a mixture of minced pork, fresh oyster, and probably coriander. With a few peanuts added onto the surface, the whole creation is dipped into piping hot oil until it turns crispy golden-browny. Chopped into 4 and it is served. Eat while its hot to experience a mixture of sensations from the crispy exterior, and the tasty moist interior which is enhanced by the unique mixture of the oyster/minced meat and coriander. Divine... but oily and not for the health freaks :)
Carrot Cake Fries [7/10]
This is your normal day-in, day-out squarish Carrot Cake. It’s just served differently... Chopped into thick strips, its fried a second time before being served. First time I had carrot cake like this. Perhaps I am a mountain tortoise!! 8 pieces for $1 if I remember correctly...
Pork Roll [6.5/10]
Also tried their Pork Roll, but to me it is just slightly above average. It was a little costly (relatively) at $3 buck a pop!
Will I be back? Yes, for the UFO and the Carrot Cake Fries!!
