    Operated in a humble stall, Jelutong Post Office Hawker Centre's signature oyster omelette is well packed with plenty of pungent smelling oysters and a generous amount of egg fried to crispy and fluffy perfection. Despite the excessive frying, the oysters still retain a really moist and juicy interior, which bursts upon putting it in your mouth. The amazingly light and fluffy omelette too coats the oysters really nicely, giving it another layer of texture. A side of spicy chilli sauce will also be provided on the side for those who wants it a little spicier.

    There are no doubt that there are plenty of fried oyster omelette in Penang. New World Park Food Court is one of them and many have agreed that it is certainly one of the best in the area. A thin layer of batter is used on top of fresh oysters, mixed and fried to crispy perfection. As compared to most, the oyster omelette at New World Park Food Court is slightly more charred and crispy. Some may call it burnt, but some will consider it texture and added flavour. However, despite the prolonged period of cooking, the oysters remain juicy and moist - which is a big plus. The homemade chilli on the side too is pretty good.

    A clean and bright food court.
