Summer Oysters from Down Under

Several of you were asking about where to get Australian or New Zealand oysters that are shipped here during the summer months (their winter). Last summer, my husband and I went to King's Fish House on about 2 different occasions and they were offering Coromandels that were flown in. It was like a monthly special, and I think it was July or August. They were the most delectable oysters I've ever eaten, even though they were a bit pricier than the other offerings, but they were well worth it. One of us should call and see if they're getting them this summer, and if so, when. Perhaps I am nominated :-)As many of you know, King's is a sister of Ocean Ave. Seafood in SM and also Water Grill. Perhaps Ocean Ave. or WG may have them as well.
