Mr. Mong makes the best hawy thawt, fried oysters, in town. Actually, don’t tell Mr. Mong, but I prefer it when Mrs. Mong is at the stove (see above). Her dish is greasy, has little nutritional value, and honestly, doesn’t look very attractive:
but it’s delicious, which is what counts.
To make it, they fry a flour and egg-based batter over a coal-burning stove until it resembles crispy and nearly burnt pancake:
They then toss either mussels or oysters on the stove and along with some spring onions, soy sauce and a corn starch wash, fry until just done. These are then used to top the crispy batter.
I’m told they also make an excellent fried rice with crab.
