Default Re: Buffet Behavior

Oh, I love 'em, and considering their price in "regular" restaurants, buffets can be a great bargain for oyster lovers. Unfortunately, you seldom see the staff shucking them fresh and therefore have no idea how long they've been sitting out. That's a mistake I won't make twice.

If you don't mind shucking them yourself, they can be bought in Chinatowns and Asian markets at a bargain. We're lucky in the Bay Area to have some oyster farms which sell directly to the public - can't get any fresher than that. Some even have BBQ/picnic areas on site for a really fun day out.

Our favorite

Sorry to derail topic with oyster talk!
