FRESH OYSTERS

The live fresh sea food in Pantai Seafood Restaurant always beckon me back. Tonight besides the usual steamed Crabs and boiled Prawns, I tried Fresh Oyster for the first time in my life- I always avoided it as I am not a Ostreaphile. French poet Leon-Paul Fargue's quote about oyster, "Eating one was like kissing the sea on the lips"
It was a sort of encouragement for me. After eating one, it did gave me a sense of satisfaction and made me realized, oh! what a fool I was ? Missing on such a great delicacy.


Fresh oyster-Rm7/each served on plate of shaved ice with slices of Yellow lemon, garlic and Tobasco sauce

As a first timer i did not follow any ritual-just hold it with one hand, a squeeze of lime juice- add some garlic- popped it in my mouth-felt a firm and slippery texture-some salinity, took a bite and chewed on it-some sweetness - gulped it down-a lovely sensation!.

Location:13575, Jalan Cempaka PJU 6A, Kg Sg Kayu Ara, Petaling Jaya. Tel:03-7727-8090.

Oysters in fact is very high in Vit B, anyway, should eat the super fresh one to avoid infection. To be frank, locally, I still dare not to consume oysters..but tried the super fresh one in Australia and love it d!

I don't eat raw food. As a Buddhist, I'm not suppose to kill any creature directly.

They look very fresh and delicious! A preparation that one of the local restaurants in my area does is to put some masago and green onion on top of the oyster. They then serve it with lemon, which I like, and some hot sauce.

Oh..Oysters you should not to often eat. Good point is very high in Vitamin B12 and bad point is Very high in cholesterol and sodium. Anyway your photos make this oyster very fresh and delicious. Sometime we take too with spicy Thai sauce and fresh vegetable.:)
