Oyster Myths

gyppielou | Jan 8, 2009 05:24 PM

In regards to the other myth thread I would like to highlight oyster myths.

I favour Wellfleet and Island Creek

However in the past year the only truly amazing oysters were those that I order at Caffe Bella in Randolph - Duxbury Oysters. They are always amazing and better than any I have had anywhere.

And I have tried Duxbury/Wellfleet/IslandCreek at many restaurants, the worst being on both occasions Skipjacks. Horrible Island creeks with an algea taste. I have had acceptable island creeks at Neptune, but no wow factor.

I honestly can't explain, but the happiest oyster experience in this past year have been my tried and true and worth the drive to Caffe Bella Duxbury Oysters, or shucking my own Island creek from Whole Foods.

I'm just not buying them anymore elsewhere. For now.
