ELV is not a fan of giant oysters — preferring the smaller, brinier, crisper taste of Belons, Kumamotos, Olympias (and smaller Wellfleets) to the larger Gulf Coast and Blue Point varieties.
But one bite of this Washington State beauty had us hooked. Mainly because they slice it into nice, bite-size sections for dipping into the house ponzu sauce here.
Thus does it become firm, instead of an unwieldy, slimy mess, and perfect for bracing your appetite for the sushi/sashimi treats to come.
They only offer these as a special when they can get them — and there’s usually just a few of them in the house — so get to Kabuto early and ask for availability.
They cost $12 each (if memory serves — there was a lot of sake involved).
Just thought you’d like to know.
