Kang Family Oyster Omelette (Kang Jia Long Tou Hai Li Jian 康家龙头海蛎煎)
Kang Fam­i­ly Oys­ter Omelette, Ku­lang­su (Gu­langyu)

Watch and ap­pre­ci­ate the artistry in the street chef’s care­ful con­struc­tion of the omelette, which is spread across a cast-iron pan to form an al­most per­fect­ly cir­cu­lar ring of fluffy egg around its nu­cle­us of oys­ters, scal­lions, and sweet-pota­to-flour bat­ter. Don’t for­get to dip it in­to Xi­a­men’s trade­mark sweet-and-spicy red sauce, which comes on the side–and if you’re lucky, maybe al­so squirt­ed on top in the shape of the num­ber “189,” in hon­or of the shop’s ad­dress (Long Tou Lu 189).
