[Singapore] Maxwell Fuzhou Oyster Cake
These Fuzhou (Foo Chow) Oyster Cakes (蠔餅) are my guilty pleasure and if I am in the Chinatown CBD area, I will definitely drop by Maxwell Food Centre to buy them as snacks not matter what the situation is (raining, too full from lunch etc). Health food they are not (the oil they used to deep fry these cakes is almost black), but delicious they definitely are, and that’s what matters to me. I momentarily forget anything I knew about calories or trans fats when eating this – I just know that it is darn delicious and happiness is good for health too :) I remembered eating oyster cakes elsewhere before, where the oil looks cleaner, but the cakes don’t end up half as delicious as the ones sold here. It doesn’t used to be this way a long time ago, but now only S$2 cakes have oysters in them. I always grab two on-the-go, one to eat there to enjoy it piping hot, and the other to enjoy later in the day when the craving sets in again. The shop front has a newspaper article with Anthony Bourdain photo on it, where he also raved about them. Really respect him for eating and appreciating our local fare.
