Oyster Omelette is a popular Singaporean street food . It differs from other omelettes in that potato starch (or other type of starch flour) is added to the egg batter, which gives the omelette a slightly chewy and springy texture. A good oyster omelette is crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside, with the oyster adding another layer of taste. It is usually served with fresh chilli sauce that has a good balance of spicy and sour.
Our favourite oyster omelette in Adelaide is from Ding Hao at Gouger Street. It had a light, crisp texture with just the right amount of oysters to give the dish a delectable salty flavour.

Park Lok at Grote Street is another restaurant in Adelaide that serves oyster omelette. While the Oyster Omelette served here was not as crispy as the one from Ding Hao, it still had the light, fluffy texture you would expect from Oyster Omelettes.

The oyster omelette at Fortuna Court at Norwood is a bit different from the Oyster Omelettes we have eaten at other restaurants. It has a softer texture, more like a "normal" omelette. It also had a hint of gingery flavour from the inclusion of ginger in the dish.

We have also tasted the oyster omelettes at Ming's Steam Boat and T-Chow even though I didn't mention the dish in my articles. We enjoyed the oyster omelettes at these restaurants a while back and would have to try the dish again to refresh our memories of the details.
Have you tried oyster omelette? Do share with us if you have. Ding Hao's oyster omelette is delicious but it's still not quite the same as what we enjoyed in Singapore.
