The Oyster Bar

Goodbye cold winter days, hello warm and sunny spring/ summer days! Although spring started about a month ago, the weather was still a bit gloomy during the first couple of weeks but thankfully, it is improving and I am not going to miss this opportunity to go to Glenelg! The last time I was here was probably in March when the weather was transitioning to autumn.

What better way to relax by the seaside than to have a couple of fresh oysters.

Diners can opt to add a few drops of tobasco and a sprinkle of black pepper to their oysters for a more "awakening" taste:)

We ordered the fresh oyster platter which is nothing but fresh oysters. I am not a big fan of oysters but I can definitely tell that it is fresh as it did not have any strange fishy aftertaste nor were the oysters rubbery in texture.

Just because I don't like fresh oysters doesn't mean I would pass up the offer for some of these Kilpartrick oysters which were baked for a few minutes with a good amount of cheese and sauce. Trust me, the oysters were not overcooked and still retained some "juices" within the shell compartment.

Clean, empty oyster shells. Happy diners we were:) Mind you, there is an oyster bar branch in the city but I somehow prefer to travel the distance, just for the full summer experience, both in terms of sight and scent.
