Live oysters at their best! - farmed in Singapore
Few things are more annoying than oysters that aren’t fresh. You can tell from the moment you put one in your hand. The oyster feels light. Once the shell is opened, you gaze upon a greyish, lacklustre animal with a shrivelled mantle clinging to the inner surface of the shell. You crinkle your nose because you pick up a slightly fishy odour. It sets off the primordial part of human brains, making you rethink the decision to put that oyster in your mouth. Well, you don’t need to ask twice. It’s a resounding “NO” for people who truly know what to compare with.
Warning! Live oysters only
A fresh oyster holds abundant liquor from the specific terroir it is from. That’s why a fresh oyster always feels heavy. The bright oyster meat is moist and plump with a glossy tan. Its mantle royally drapes across its shiny shell. The fresh ocean smell transports you to an idyllic, deserted island with pristine beaches and perfect sunsets. You can almost feel a gentle sea breeze lightly brushing your hair. Finally, the oyster may taste creamy or more crunchy; nutty, fruity, earthy, or metallic; sweet or briny. You shouldn’t need any condiments to appreciate a fresh oyster, but if preferred, add a few drops of lemon juice or pepper sauce for a more acidic or spicy taste profile.
