Buying Oysters in Chinatown

likaluca | Aug 26, 2008 10:15 AM

Generally, I am never ever fearful of buying seafood in chinatown--for the most part, everything I have ever bought from the markets has been cheap, well-handled and good...

Recently, however, I finally slurped an oyster down my gullet and am completely addicted... and I worry that since everyone seems to have had an "I got sick off an oyster story" if I should just look elsewhere.

Has anyone bought fresh oysters from the markets in Chinatown? Good/Bad? Should I/Shouldn't I? Any advice is appreciated.

Note: I tend to favor the shop on the corner of Mulberry and Canal.
