Hog Island Oyster farm

Han Lukito | Oct 16, 200308:11 AM

This place is very disappointing !

The oyster was very salty and lacks flavor. We got the small Hog Island and the Kumamoto oysters. Not sure if it's because of the season.

Not worth the 2 hrs drive of winding road. It cost like $30 for 50 pcs. We threw away many of them because it was just not worth shucking them.

I also think that it maybe well worth the extra cost to buy them at a nice roadside restaurant. The farm is smelly and unappetizing. Shucking oyster is NOT easy at all and probably not worth it. I had to use a screwdriver and a hammer to open those things and it works very well. Forget the shucking knife unless you have 12 inch round biceps to oepn it up and willing to risk your limbs.
