Fried Oysters?

I had a very pleasant experience at Malibu Seafood..but the one low point was their fried oysters. Even though they had live oysters on display, the fried oysters were clearly canned (and like the scallops, came with a jalapeno popper-style breading).

Please recommend really plump, fresh fried oysters.

    1. Have you tried Fish King in Glendale? Their ready to eat section has really nice plump fried oysters.

      We buy them by the dozen and make some pretty mean New Orleans style oyster po' boys.

        No I haven't....are they sitting there or fried to order?

      2. Many of the Chinese Restaurants from Chinatown to San Gabriel Valley that specialize in seafood serve very good fried oysters. Hate to harp on a personal favorite but Hop Li on Alpine is really good.

          1. We had a surprisingly good fried oyster appetizer at McCormick & Schmick's in Burbank.
            Also, Little Dom's in Los Feliz makes a killer fried oyster po-boy.

              There's also a very tasty appetizer at Boho on Sunset.....fried oyster po-boy sliders.
              Very small....literally bite-sized. But very good.
