So, one of my favorite places to eat in the world is Swan Oyster Depot in San Francisco.
The oyster is the perfect food and when you get great ones like I had in SF, they are truly sublime. All you need is a tiny squeeze of lemon or a drizzle of mignonette and you're ready to go.
The flavors and textures are so clean and pure.
I had 2 dozen Kumamotos(only 1 dozen shown below), which were superb. Sweet and tasty. I wanted to order 3 dozen more, but hey....this was breakfast :)
I also had a dozen Blue Point oysters and those were more briny and significantly larger.
Seafood salad with fresh Dungeness crab(in season back in Nov when I was there), cocktail shrimp and regular shrimp. So fresh and so good.
One day when I get some time away from work and go back to the Bay area, I will step onto hallowed ground at the French Laundry.
And you thought this blog was just about art.
