Anyone who likes fresh seafood and is in the Apalachicola/ Port St Joes Fla area has to stop here:

http://www.indianpassrawbar.com

The biggest, freshest oysters I have ever had and dirt cheap.  I watched the fishermen pulling them off the boat across the street and walk them into the back of the place.  Now thats fresh!  The other dishes looked awesome as I watched them being prepared.  The fresh oysters are shucked right before your eyes by a fun entertaining group of guys. The atmosphere is a blast.  Walk up to the cooler and help yourself to a beer, soda or wine cooler...you pay later, they work on the honor system. Just save the cap to your bottle(s) for when you settle up.  Sometimes they have cookouts and bluegrass bands....definitely a local roadfood type place that the tourists avoid.   Enjoy!

Greymo,

That they are.  These were the largest best tasting oysters I have ever had.  I am not an expert by any means but I thought these were the best I ever had.

I spoke with some of the locals as I was eating. They said that the oysters that grow in the Apalachicola bay are some of the best in the world because the conditions are perfect for growing oysters.  They said that oysters grow best when there is a perfect mix of salt water and fresh water from an incoming river.  Apparently, the mixture of fresh water from the Apalachicola River and the salt water from the ocean along with the perfect beds across the entire bay create an environment that grows some of the largest, tastiest oysters in the world.  I can't wait to visit again.

Appalachicolas are indeed great oysters, but so are Chincoteagues, Belons, Blue Points, Malpeques, etc, etc,

BTW: Sunday's NYTimes travel section had a story about Damariscotta Maine Oysters which are relatively new to the market having been wiped out many years ago and only recently revived due to a cleaner river. 

Has anyone here tasted these oysters?

 I have and they're good. I also had some oysters recently from the Taunton Bay area of the Maine coast.
To me, they are a little larger than Malpeques(not as large as southern oysters) and not as briny as the Malpeques.
  Finally, Maine has realized it has good terroir!

This would explain why the local bar down the street from me which was offering 50 cent oysters on wed nights quit doing it.  I would not agree with you about the overrated statement though.  The local ones here in NC I have had are way too small and a bit on the tough side in my opinion.  But I do know during this time of year, the water is very warm in the Gulf which may be the reasoning for the sickness and them being more prone to carrying sickness causing bacteria.

You are probably the first person I have ever seen on Roadfood to mention eggs and oysters! Several (more than 25) years ago, a friend took me to a local "hole in the wall" restaurant- I was living in Kingston, NY at the time, for a Mothers Day Brunch. Lo and behold, beautiful eggs with fresh oysters were the main entree....all I can say is WOW! I have not had them since, but I still remember that meal......thanks for the memory jolt!

I tend to agree with the writer of the newspaper article. I usually skip oysters during the months without an "R" in it as well.
I will however, make an exception for oysters that come from the Pacific NorthWest.
Here in Dallas, Gulf (Texas & Louisiana) oysters have a muddy taste during the warmer months that you don't taste in PNW oysters.

I have a question - the only time I had an oyster was at a fish and chips place.   It was deep fried and I spit it out.  Raw oysters, I've always had it in my mind that you let them slide down your throat.  That's not true, is it?  Do they have little bits of sand in them?  Do you chew a lot or just a few chews and then down the throat?

Re:Raw Oysters anyone? 2009/10/25 15:18:06
Although you can just swallow since they are soft, it is preferable to chew to realize the flavor and texture a quality oyster provides. There may be some grit but cleaning and rinsing the shells will help along with removing pieces of shell that may occur from the opening process. I usually do not chew much but enough to separate and gain the flavors before reaching for the next one. Great PNW oysters in their prime during the winter months.

To me, after nearly 80 years of eating European, East, and Gulf Coast oysters, I find the Pacific Coast oysters I have sampled to have an alien metalic ( maybe coppery) taste. The ones I've had have been fat and plump and briny - but there's that background  unusual taste that i just can't seem to learn to love.

I have read that zinc is the metal......and it is supposedly why Oysters are considered to be an aphrodisiac. I always thought that claim was mostly a marketing gimmick but just to make sure I always eat several dozen just to make sure I have all options covered..

That FDA proposal has since been lifted (thank goodness).

One should always be cautious when consuming raw oysters and most likely the safest thing would be to always cook but I try to pick where I consume and hope for the best. The folks in LA contend that very hot TABASCO sauce will help ward off the evil bugs. I also think a couple of strong Margaritas will help as well. Throw in some ice cold Abita Beer for good measure and I think you will be AOK.

We had a couple of rounds of raw oysters during Christmas that came from the Gulf and they were great.  We did these as Oyster Shooters that had Vodka in the bottom of the shot glass and extra spicy sauce on top.

We were recently introduced to an oyster new to us, it is a small thin shelled oyster from New Brunswick, Canada called St Simeon. They are delicious little guys - a bit briny, sweet and firm. 

I note that a number of our friends here on Roadfood like their raw oysters accompanied by a cocktail sauce. I like a cocktail sauce on my shrimp, but never on an oyster. If they are really really fresh, just plain slurped right off the shell is fine, otherwise we like a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of black pepper, or a mignonette sauce ( finely diced shallots, vinegar, and ground black pepper).

Just finished a half dozen that a friend brought me from Maine. These are the very best I've ever tasted. The flavor and size (large) are unbeatable. These are Glidden Point Oysters, harvested fresh from the cold waters of the Damariscotta River by the oyster farm located there. When I visit the Bothbay region twice a year, I always find my way to the Lobster Wharf in Boothbay Harbor on Saturday nites, where for "A Buck a Shuck" I enjoy as many as I can eat.

I love raw oysters but it's hard to get good ones around here.  I let them sit in my mouth for a moment before chewing, because hells bells if you swallow a rancid one  it's in your stomach before you know it!  This happened to me once when I swallowed one without chewing and I knew instantly from the taste it my mouth that is was off.  I didn't get sick, but I am wary of the raw oysters at restaurants around here.

We used to eat at the TODAI on either Harbor or Beach Blvd a short distance south of the 405 . The buffet had a variety of sushi and other Asian foods that were a real treat. Always had Mussels, and now and then Oysters. But shrimp in various forms made a fine meal. It has been a decade since we were there...Our rae oysters now come from the Gulf Coast when we get there...and the fried oysters are on the buffet at the Moonlite BBQ each friday nite. well worth a trip to Owensboro, KY.

hello, Make sure they are in season. In North America (where I think you're located) oysters are considered in season during months that have an "r" in them (so they're out of season May through the end of August) -- two reasons -- first, summer is the spawning season, and the oysters are generally leaner and don't taste very good, and second, the warmer waters of summer are perfect to encourage any bacterial growth in the water and therefore in the oysters themselves.thanks

While caution should always be taken when eaten anytime of the year, this premise is basically a Myth in todays world. 95% of all oysters are sustainably farmed and harvested eliminating some of the causes of tainted oysters. Todays modern methods of refrigeration deep oysters from "Spoiling". Only live oysters should be eaten. Fresh oysters must be alive just before consumption or cooking. There is only one criterion: the oyster must be capable of tightly closing its shell. Open oysters should be tapped on the shell; a live oyster will close up and is safe to eat. Oysters which are open and unresponsive are dead and must be discarded. Proper harvesting and refrigeration are the keys to good oysters.
The people most vunerable to a bacteria called Vibrio vulnificus found in oysters and seawater during warm months that can cause serious illness or death if consumed are people with liver disease or other immune disorders.
3 years ago, FL approved the irradiation of oysters that reduces the amount of harmful bacteria without damaging their flavor and appearance of the oysters. The oysters are prepackaged on pallets that are treated with a controlled amount of radiation for a very short time.

It should be noted that some people eating such oysters have been known to grow shells and produce pearls. Nobody has figured out how to use these abilities to fight crime, however.
