It Was A Dark And Stormy Night

Actually, it was pretty clear and a touch on the chilly side outside; inside the restaurant it was dark (and the cell phone camera was crappy) but the oysters were damned yummy

Three dozen sweet briny tasty glurpy oodles of pearlescent Old Testament Sin.

If this is “unclean”, well, I say bring it.

    Can’t help but notice they don’t offer any from Louisiana or anywhere else along the Gulf Coast. Will have to take your word that they’re yummy. I have never tried any of the imitations. 🙂

    Rob, if you’ve never had kumomotos you are missing something mighty yum.

    OMG, I would kill for a plate of those right now! Slurping is the best part!

    Are you SH*TTING ME?!?!?! Almost THREE BUCKS A PIECE?

    I hope the dope you were smoking was cheaper and didn’t interfere with the briny taste…

    You ain’t been to the Big City in quite a while, Sis.

    Prices have changed a tad since 1974.

    I like them fried. But then again, Anything battered and friend is good…hmmmm.. I wonder what Circus Peanuts taste like fried…

    Want snot on the halfshell? Try the new seafood place in Asbury Park. Good food, weird people and no bridge tolls.

    I think we get ours for about 50 cents a piece down here in the sticks.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    la-la-la-la-la I’m not listening Laura!

  10. JeffS says:

    How about deep fried Circus Peanuts, Laura, using lard? Maybe coated in peanut butter for an extra layer of yumminess?

    “Kumomotos”? Isn’t that one of those dragon thingies? You eat saliva spewing dragons?

    Oysters, yech.

    In Washington they have the very small Olympia Oyster, tha inhabits southern Puget Sound, and is supposed to have a superb taste (I’ll take their word for it). Around the turn of the 19th Century there was a proposal afoot to move the state capital from Olympia to Vancouver, a bigger city on the Columbia River. The state legislators were all set to pass this measure when somebody pointed out that in Vancouver they cold not get fresh Olympia Oysters. The proposal to move the capital failed immediately after that observation, and it remains in Olympia to this day.

    Yeah, I used to be ‘yech’ on oysters, and even still I get that occasional “this is really gross” vibe as I’m diving in.

    But as always another glass of wine washes all my doubts away!
