Fried Oyster used to be sold on tricycle with a 3 foot cast iron skillet rested above a makeshift wood fired stove which was fashioned out of an old oil drum. Since street hawkers were being moved to hawker centers in the early 1970 as part of the government's street hawkers resettlement program.
Fried Oyster 4.5/5
I seldom venture to the west side of Singapore for my food exploration but thanks to the Singapore Favourite Food 2013 Food Trail I got to visit Leng Kee hawker stall at Bukit Timah Market. The Fried Oyster ($4, $5, $6, $8) batter mixture of oyster juice and flour was fried to a nice crisp, garnished with cilantro and served with big juicy oyster. A good plate of fried oyster must accompanied with a good dipping sauce and Leng Kee did not disappoint with the sambal chilli and calamansi juice dip.
Besides the delicious fried oyster, the stall also sells delectable satay and chicken wings. The satay was nicely grilled to a nice smoky flavour paired with the peanut pineapple dipping sauce. The chicken wings were also beautifully marinated and flavourful.
Chicken Wings 4.2/5
If you stay around the vicinity of Bukit Timah and you are looking for your local food fix, I would recommend Leng Kee. The 3 in 1 stall will sure to satisfy your craving with its delicious hawker fare.
