This tasted fine, but there was just SO much breading! I also wish it had more buffalo flavor and was crispy. They were kinda on the wet, soggy side.

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.
