Famous Fried Oyster Omelette @ Jalan Bunga Raya, Melaka (Malacca)

There's one famous fried oyster omelette in Melaka that well known with the locals for generations. Its a small stall that's only operates at night at Medan Makanan Bunga Raya at Jalan Bunga Raya. The stall normally operates from 8pm until midnight and expect a long queue to order.

My father's hometown is Melaka. He told me that, the stall was already popular when he was a kid. The stall has been operating at least 40-50 years. My grandma told me they used to cook with duck eggs which tasted much better. Now, they only use normal chicken eggs. After generations passed, the small little stall is there.

This picture was taken last year during my last trip to Melaka. I had been searching this few pictures for weeks and glad I found it.


That's the stall with the huge pan. They can cook up at least 5-6 plates at once!


Look at the amount of the eggs!


Sadly, I didn't manage to have the fried oyster that day. I needed to wait for an hour if I wanted to have the fried oyster. I couldn't wait as it was already 11pm.

The fried oyster omelette is popular because its cooked to perfection. Fried oyster omelette there were usually starchy (not crispy) and the oysters were small. Its different than the fried oyster omelette from KL (Kuala Lumpur).

My father would always take away a few plates back to KL if he would be in Melaka. A plate used to cost around RM 8 each plate but I wouldn't know how much it costs now.
