Chez Mach Oyster Bar

Anita and I are suckers for raw oysters. I'm like Pavlov's dog the minute we encounter fresh oysters, so you can imagine our salivatory excitement when we hit up the newly opened Save-on Foods to find that they had fresh Kumamoto and Kusshi oysters in the seafood counter for a buck and half each. Now I finally have an excuse to buy some oyster forks. And also to learn how to make mignonette.

First attempt at shucking oysters at home. Didn't stab myself with the knife. WIN!

They even looked presentable after shucking. Bigger shells - Kusshi. Smaller ones - Kumamoto.

Oyster fans: the Kusshis are small-medium sized, but quite deep and meaty, with a nice flavour and clean finish. Easily my favourite. The kumamotos were also nice, but quite small. I like a bit more meat to my bivalves.
