on a hot summer day, couldnt find anything better to do other than drinking some beer and slurping on some oysters. we drove to portland, me for some fresh oysters straight from the source.
a good selection of oysters. we got 2 dozens: 1 from maine and 1 from away.
FROM MAINE: Winterpoint Selects, Norumbega, John’s River, Basket Island, Pemaquid, Flying Point, North Haven, Pine Point, Wild Belon
FROM AWAY: Fire River, Fire River, Kusshi, Kumamoto, Quilcene, Duxbury, Katama, Beau Soleil, Cuttyhunk
i enjoyed everything at eventide oyster co. except the pig ear terrine. food was very fresh. my friends thought the seafood dishes lacked flavors, but i enjoyed as they way they were. i dont like my seafood heavily flavored which can completely overpower their delicate and subtle natural flavor. seafood has to be very fresh itself and minimum seasoning needed to complement its natural flavor.
