To wake up to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, to be able to comb my feet over meters after meters of powdery white sand and to indulge and have all the seafood that my tummy can take. That would be one great vacation and while I'm miles away from home at the moment, all I can do now is to daydream about it. Nuninuninu....
We all know that an oyster is a famous aphrodisiac. It has been linked with l-o-v-e from way back that's why most Valentine's Day dinners would normallly have oysters as part of their menu line-up. However, did you know that oysters are also considered brain food as they can boost your mental ability and it can balance your mood too. Personally, it was only lately when I found the guts to eat oysters. Having a very sensitive tummy, I take extra caution when having shellfish and I only eat them in places that I trust.
Don't worry as you'll still be able to have your favorite Circles dishes but with the addition of a lot of oyster-themed specialties as well. Piece of advice, never have oysters with an empty stomach. Therefore, do survey the other stations first such as the salad bar, cold cuts and cheese section or have some hand-rolled Japanese makis at the far end of the buffet. I had some Indian papadum, mango chutney and lots of cheese on my first round. A weird combination, I know, but these are my favorite starters!
What a delicious feast! We were told that these oysters were flown in from Europe as the yummiest oysters are those cultivated in extremely cold places. This is because winter oysters can get really meaty and fat thus they become more flavorful in the process. We never thought the temparature would make a difference. Now, our taste buds have been spoiled after tasting the creme dela creme of oysters.
Mark your calendar and make sure to make every Monday night, Oyster Fiesta Night!
