And my favorite oyster is...

I have been wanting to add oysters into my diet for a while.

I did eat them in college but it was more of a dare and the guys would always pick the biggest and grossest oysters to try.

As an adult, I wanted to try them on my own terms.

We picked the mixed plate, 2 Bluepoints, 2 Malaspina and 2 Kumamoto.

The small ones (the one that is empty is the Kumamoto, the next are the Malaspina (I think) and the next are the Bluepoints.

The small oysters? The Kumamoto? They were like eating fried clams with a dollop of butter, sweet and rich and just my taste. 

I also enjoyed the crab cocktail:

And my friend picked the Manhattan chowder:

My friend enjoyed the oysters on the crusty bread -

A day of firsts - finding oysters I actually liked!

Night all.
