Oysters on the half shell - what's the appeal?

HastaLaPasta | Dec 15, 2009 07:51 AM

Ok, I don't get it. Please enlighten me. I tried raw oysters on the half shell for the first time the other night. Tried to follow the advice of those in my party who had had them before. Basically drained the excess liquid, tiled my head back, and swallowed. It was pretty much tasteless and flavorless. When I tried to add one of the supplied sauces, all I tasted was the sauce. So really, what is the big deal with these?
