These UFO-shaped deep fried fritters of oysters, minced pork and spring onions are one of the most popular night market foods in Singapore. Inspired by the Fuzhou Oyster Cakes or Oyster Patties that originate from Fuqing in China, the meat puffs sold by the Teochew owners here also include scallops, crab sticks, octopus and prawns. The use of these ingredients is attributed to the fact that Fuqing is located in the coastal hills of China where an abundance of various seafood is available. Given that these snacks are as rare as UFO sightings, expect snaking queues for them every time during a night market.
