3. O-A-Chian (Oyster Omelet): Fresh oysters are dropped into a gooey mixture of tapioca and sweet potato starch, and quick-fried with eggs and vegetables. A savory sauce is poured on top of the omelet for an irresistibly mouthwatering taste.
4. Lu Rou Fan (Braised Pork Rice): “Lurou” refers to finely chopped pork, stir-fried with scallion onions, shallot and spices to draw out the fragrance. The pork is then slow-cooked in soy sauce. Sprinkled with braised pork and gravy on plain cooked rice, it is a unique comfort food for everyone.
