Pacific Oyster - Bay City - Oregon

If you've been here from the beginning, you might have remembered Pacific Oyster from my post about Why Oregon Will Always Be Home. It took just that many years later to revisit one of my family's favorite spots whenever we're on the coast.

My parents like to buy bags of oysters and fresh fish when the boats come in.

Cute! I've got a picture of lil' sis making fishy faces.

Since it's a seafood market also, there's always a variety to choose from.

Clam chowder in a bowl, $5.99. I liked the addition of dill in their broth.

I had to get the oyster burger and fries, $8.95.

Look at those juicy oysters. Again, the addition of dill was quite nice.

Lil' sis and the middle '87 opted for oysters and chips, $10.95. Given that both orders contained three oysters, I think mine was the better value. Although, the garlic bread sure was tasty.

And of course, we each had to get a freshly shucked oyster, $1.75.

Eat oysters and you'll "live long and prosper"? :P

I liked the shot glass so much I bought it too.

We always tease my brother about his soft, pale hands, but that makes for a pretty good hand model, eh?

I said plating it on the bed of ice was nicer than his hand modeling though.

Afterward, I made my brother stop so I could show you the oyster shell mounds again.

That's a lot of oysters!

We also stopped off to buy a bag on our way home. I forgot how much, but it's a lot cheaper since we're buying in bulk and shucking the oysters ourselves.

Lunch out of the way, we had to go to our other must-stop whenever we're here -- the Tillamook Cheese Factory.
