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.
