Fresh Oysters for Purchase In Baltimore
I was interested if anyone knew of a good source for a variety of oysters. I'd like to purchase them to bring home and shuck myself. My mother in-law is in town and typically likes Kumomoto's as she likes them on the petite side.
Also, in your opinion what is the best local oyster for frying?
If variety is what you are after Ryleigh's happy hour from 3 til 7 may be the solution. The last time I went there were 12 different oysters being served. 3 or so northwest. 3 or four northeast and Canada, and several local oysters. They are $1 each. Just tell them not to shuck them.
Wegman's occasionally offers Kumamotos. Chesapeake Bay oysters are very good fried and, AFAIK are our only local oysters.They are wild Virginacus (sp?). Wellfleets are farmed Virginacus.
