Good news: just 30 minutes north of San Francisco, I can get them fresh and eat all the slimy, salty sea mollusk goodness I want.
Three purveyors to choose from, all located off the beautiful Highway 1 as you drive up to Point Reyes. They all offer some pretty delicious oyster goodness - and provide picnic benches, shuckers and bbq grills for you to enjoy your purchase on the spot! A dozen oysters will set you back about $15-20, depending on what you type you buy. . .
I'm a young professional with a love of good eats and faraway places. I do the tech-startup/econ development thing in SF, where I've been for 5 years. And I'm adamant that this city has the best selection of cooking/eating/drinking joints around. Although sometimes my jaunts in faraway places leave me needing some serious validation to test that theory. . .
Not quite a food expert, I enjoy cooking and eating as a hobby. I also love to travel. This is my attempt to meld both passions and explore what makes food and drink bad, delicious or downright irresistible on tables around the world.
