Though I am not from the Pacific Northwest, I love my oysters and I love to down them raw. What are your favorite oysters from the Northwest?
Taylor Shellfish (Puget Sound)- Shigoku- suspension grown and tide tumbled. Sweet, juicy, and just a hint of brine
Deep Bay, Vancouver Island, BC- Kusshi- similarly grown as Shigoku. Clean, delicate and sweet flavor. Kusshi means ‘ultimate’ in Japanese. Interestingly, the Taylor Shigoku box also says ‘ultimate’.
What other oysters/ producers do you like in the area?
