Found! Belon Oysters

Porthos | Oct 6, 2012 07:54 PM

Went back to Shuck Oyster House in Costa Mesa tonight.

Tried at least 6-7 types of oysters. All very good.

Then I noticed they had a "$20 oyster" which was belon garnished with creme fraiche, etc.

$9 unadorned. Flown in from Brittany. With the rubberband still on them.

I had to order a half dozen unadorned. They were delicious. Briny, minerally, clean finish, meaty and sweet. A true treat.
