Nothing like fresh smoked oysters.

Just had a great po boy sandwich at Go Fish on Granville Island in Canada. Oysters were not fried, and served with lettuce and fried onions on a thick roll. Yum.

I noticed that you wrote that you "tried" to eat some oysters in Matunuck. I've also "tried" and found the wait too intimidating. However, I'll keep "trying" as I've heard the wait is worth it. I wish I lived closer.

Great blog.

Totally agree with you on the ocean hit of Blue Points versus the timewasting tastelessness of Kumamotos, but then again, I'm an East Coast girl. As for johnnycakes, the best ones I ever had were at a fair at South County Museum in Rhode Island, which you should not miss if you ever pass that way again. Check it out at http://www.southcountymuseum.org/. I do love Rhode Island's coastal offerings although I can pass on the fried dough!

I first tried an oyster on a dare at Boston's Faneuil Hall on summer camp trip when I was 13 or so. I had some trouble with that first one, but they've since become one of my absolute favorite things. Eating oysters gives a meal the feel of a special occasion or celebration even if you are just having a half dozen on a weekday night.

Considering, as you point out, that there is now more oyster production going on in the East Coast then at any time since the early twentieth century, I wonder why they continue to cost like $2 - $5 a pop? Where are my 50 cent oysters that I can afford to eat a dozen at a time? Especially when it gets hot out, I want every day to be oyster party day.
