Village Voice's Description

This utilitarian Fujianese spot is often full of diners lunching on ultra-cheap noodle soups and fish-and-rice combos from the steam table. But on a self-service table in the center of the room sits the most best offering of all: freshly fried oyster cakes. These are the distinctively Fujianese oyster cakes--UFO-shaped rice-flour-fritters the size of a man's fist. The deeply burnished crust is embedded with peanuts, and the filling is a steamy, savory mix of oysters, leeks, scallions, and a bit of minced pork. Grab a wax paper bag and the tongs from the display table, and help yourself to as many oyster cakes as you can eat before they get cold. For 70 cents each, there's no better snack in Sunset Park.
