Supper Series: 5 Late-Night Spots In Singapore For That Orh Luak Craving

We round up our pick of stalls dishing out crispy oyster omelettes until midnight or later.

All that grease and starch means orh luak probably isn't the kind of omelette you'll have for breakfast. But for supper, there's nothing better to fix that late-night stomach rumble then this plate of crispy goodness.

We round up five hawker stalls around Singapore that open until late, to satisfy that supper craving.

Huat Heng Fried Oyster
90/91 Whampoa Drive, Whampoa Drive Hawker Centre
Opening Hours: 12pm to 8pm

Described in the Michelin Guide Singapore 2017 as "fried baby oysters with eggs cooked-to-order", this Michelin-recommended hawker stall is a hidden gem. The baby oysters are plump and coated with crispy egg batter slicked with the glistening juices of the molluscs.

Song Kee Fried Oyster
1220 East Coast Parkway, East Coast Lagoon Food Village
Opens until 1am

The lines that form outside of this stall is a surefire sign you're on the right path to hunting down a good orh luak. The version here is slightly wet, and packs a punch with a spicy chilli dip and chopped cilantro to garnish the egg-and-oyster combination. Ask to add on more oysters if you fancy an extra burst of salty sea flavour.

Lim's Fried Oyster
#01-22, 166 Jalan Besar, Berseh Food Centre
Opens until 12am

The fragrant, gooey oyster omelette cooked up here dates back to the 1960s, when stall-owner Mr Lim's father began selling this dish from a pushcart along the streets. Lim's ork luak is cooked with chilli and remains crispy on the outside with a gummy consistency once you break through the egg batter, and is served on old-school plates.

A hot wok and fresh plump oysters are essential to a good plate of orh luak.

Hup Kee Fried Oyster Omelette
500 Clemenceau Avenue North, #01-73 Newton Circus Food Centre
Opening Hours: 6pm to 1am 

Newton might be seen as a bit of a tourist trap, but this discreet oyster omelette stall is anything but that. It's also a favourite supper spot for local chefs like chef Kenjiro Hashida of Michelin-recommended Hashida Sushi. The oysters here are rich and creamy, cooked into an entire crispy omelette that is served uncut (typical oyster omelettes see the egg being cut up into neat squares). Best washed down with an icy cold beer — craft or local.

Green Sky Fried Kway Teow
#01-14, Bedok Food Centre, 1 Bedok Road
Opens from 11am to 9.30pm

This Chinese family-run hawker stall at Bedok Food Centre in the East is one of the few halal-certified orh luak spots in Singapore. Besides oyster omelette, the stall also sells a variety of popular local favourites, from fried oyster omelette to fried kway teow noodles and fried carrot cake.
