Going to other country seems like craving for their local dishes. That's the reason why I am China Town, Binondo, Manila yesterday; I am craving for the "oyster cake" that once tasted in Guangdong, China. The "ouster cake" is prepared in very simple ingredients: oysters, starch, egg batter and sauce. In fact, it is just an oyster omelet; but is commonly known as "oyster cake". The craving has gone as I munched the "oyster cake" with staple rice. The fun going outdoors is so exciting with friends who have the same interests. If ever, you will consider this as the strangest food. It takes a lot of courage to try new delicacies. In fact, it does look bad but the taste is heavenly. Trying such oyster cake is the best food you had ever tried. There is no need to worry about the strange appearance. Take it as the best recipe integrated to a great meal.
Fried Oyster Cake (???) is also known as UFO due to it's rounded shape. It's a snack which is crispy on the outside and yet moist on the inside when done rig...

It sounds like something similar to egg foo young which is another thing I have not had in many years most times when I do get Chinese food I get the same variety of things egg rolls, fried rice, dumplings, rangoons.

@Shavkat I wanted some yesterday but everyone wanted burgers instead so I went without it. I'm due to go up there again in a few days so maybe then I can get my fix if I'm alone.

At first I read this title, I just found it weird because cake should taste sweet in my opinion. After reading it, I know what kind of "cake" it is. This is why sometimes I can't figure out some Chinese dishes according to the English translation.

@youless It is good to know, right? So I guess we need to learn more about dishes from different countries.

It does not sound too strange to me. I have put shrimp in omelets before.
