I am one of those foodies who have pet peeves on certain types of food and it so happens to involve protein from the sea/river. As a child, I avoided eating fish that has its skin still attached and mussels. And if I did eat any, no chewing is involved (yep, I am a professional swallow-er).
Fast forward time, I still get goosebumps whenever I see fish served with skin although admittedly, this is a far cry from what it used to be. As for mussels, well, let's just say I still try to avoid it. Ahh the perks of being an adult. Same applies to eating oysters - not something that I will appreciate nor will I crave for it.
And so, this explains my reluctance to head to this restaurant knowing that my choices are limited to fish and chips or maybe a bowl of salad. The waiter was very knowledgeable in detailing to us the various types of oysters served here and I just allowed my companion to go berserk at ordering.
