Of late, various kinds of hawker food have been the subject for politicians as Singaporeans head to the polls on the 11th of September 2015. One of the hawker food mentioned was none other than “Orh Luak” which is Fried Oyster (蚝煎 ). This is a dish of oysters fried with eggs and a batter made up of tapioca flour which gives you a sticky and starchy texture.
Some could not even differentiate between an orh luak to an orh neng (蚝蛋) which is basically oyster omelette without the tapioca flour batter.
Such events created a surge in social media postings of various hawker food in different electoral boundaries in Singapore. I was somewhat influenced by the orh luak politics and decided to get my fix at Pin Xiang – 品香 stall in Chong Pang Market and Food Centre.
