What a pleasant surprise during my routine Thursday shopping. The Hog Island Oyster Company is now selling shucked and unshucked oysters, as well as clams and mussels. Unshucked range in price from $10-$15 per dozen. Shucked are $2 a piece. Today, the shucked options were Sweetwater and Kumamoto, and I had one of each. I'm no oyster expert, but I thought these were delicious. Very fresh, a nicely subtle brine, no off-flavors. They also had lemon wedges, tobasco, and a cilantro sauce. This just might become a weekly habit for me. Welcome to Berkeley, Hog Island!
