With its incredible versions and decadent taste, the oyster omelet are the year-round night market headliner in Taiwan, Hokkien, and parts of southeast Asia. The Taiwanese people, in the early days, put their resilience and creativity to test by inventing this incredibly savory dish with what little food source they had. They dipped fresh oysters into a gooey mixture of tapioca and sweet potato starch as filling, and quick-fried them with eggs, bits of squid or shrimp, and vegetables. Sauces are poured on top of the omelet for an irresistibly mouthwatering taste.
