If you like big, cheap, juicy, meaty oysters, then Louisiana is the place to be. They're not as sweet as West Coast and they're not as briny as the Northeast, but they sure are plump. And for 75 cents a pop? You know I'm there.
This weekend, Carlo and Rosalyn visited from New York. I of course brought them to Willie Mae's, and then Rosalyn found a place with an oyster happy hour daily from 3-6 pm for 75 cents a half shell. That is an absolute steal. So the three of us obviously got 4 dozen. They were fresh, delicious, and went surprisingly well with saltines.
