Oyster Omelet (蚵仔煎)

As the picture shows, it is a street food in Taiwan, which is called oyster omelet. It is delicious and I think it can be more acceptable for most of the people who have never tried this type of food before.

Oyster omelet looks like a pancake which combines salty and sweet flavor together. Almost everybody in Taiwan loves it, which makes it a must in Taiwan’s night market. People always say that if you have never tried this in the night market, do not say you have been to the night market in Taiwan.

This is my mother’s favorite street food in the night market. Each time when I go to a night market I always buy it for my mother. I always saw a lot of people queue up for Oyster Omelet. Even though I know I have to wait for a long time, it is worthy. Because it tastes unbelievable.

Oyster omelet has 4 major ingredients, oyster, powdered sweet potato starch, eggs, and greens onion. Additionally, people like to add a little sweet chili sauce on top of it.

I highly recommend oyster omelet for the people who love seafood and this is a wonderful and healthy combination of vitamin, protein, and starch.
