The elusive fried oyster

Enjoy Good Food | Jul 3, 2009 07:38 PM

I'll give 'ya 50 bucks if you can point me in the direction of excellent fried oysters in the Philly suburbs. My experience in ordering them has resulted in oysters no larger than a quarter, half of which has been breading. Must I buy and cook my own to get something worthwhile? Sparn's in Manayunk (25 years ago) served huge, scrumptious oysters that were lightly battered and not at all greasy. I've spent almost three decades trying to replicate that experience.
