Mignonette, lemon. Happy hour, each $2 NZD
Oyster & Chop, Auckland NZ
Hmm, I liked that these oysters were super affordable during happy hour, but they didn’t seem very fresh or tasty. They seemed like they could have been previously frozen which is never a good thing. Oh well, you win some you lose some.
Elephant Hill Syrah ($13 NZD) and Mills Reef Cabernet blend ($12 NZD).
Mignonette, cocktail sauce, lemon. Happy hour, 1/2 dozen $15
B Restaurant and Bar, San Francisco CA
These oysters tasted good, although they were not shucked very cleanly. Their mignonette also had a harsh flavor. It wasn’t my favorite so I ended up just using the lemon since I also don’t use cocktail sauce for fresh oysters.
On the half shell, mignonette, lemon. Happy hour, each $1
Hog & Rocks, San Francisco CA
Mmm, I love the happy hour here! It’s one of the few places in SF that you can still get dollar oysters. They’re actually really fresh and delicious even for happy hour oysters!
Tasting menu $87
Petit Crenn, San Francisco CA
I love Kusshi oysters, and these were so cute. Kusshi oysters are nice and small, and clean and bright. Noms!
Parmesan, calabrian chile, butter, lemon. $14
Hog & Hominy, Memphis
Even though these oysters weren’t raw and fresh (my favorite way to have oysters), this preparation was really flavorful. I loved the texture of the wood fired oysters and its toppings. The calabrian chile was a great addition.
Cross-Town Fade cocktail – Belle Meade bourbon, fernet branca, HH tonic, lemon, ananda ipa. $12
Dozen oysters paired with a bottle of rose wine. $30
The Cavalier, San Francisco CA
Omg, I need to come for this happy hour deal more often! A dozen oysters and a bottle of rose for thrity bucks, I’m in! And these oysters were really good and tasty, yum!
Bloody Mary style, potato, fennel. $9
Rapp Session, Richmond VA
This was really good! I liked the spiciness of the bloody mary flavor, and it was actually a pretty sizable portion for the price. There was quite a few oysters in there too!
