Living it up at Mother Shucker Oysters
Ah, the high life. What could be more decadent than slurping oysters with a choice of several condiments? Not much really. This place has no allures though, capsuling the Cape Town feel: The high life in casual clothing. Alongside the Oysters, the stand serves bubbly, most likely a local sparkling wine from the Western Cape region.
We stood alongside college kids and young hipster-professionals with ironic T-shirts and intricately styled bed-head hairdos. We topped our two dozen oysters with hot sauce and/or lemon juice the occasional twist of pepper was also not amiss. It was divine and perhaps this is the best way to eat an oyster, standing up, from a slippery wooden cutting board with a handful of bubbly to weash them down.
I certainly plan to eat them this way for the rest of my days.
Verdict: Scrumptious and a real treat. Oyster-lovers will revel in Mother Shucker Oysters high quality and fun approach.
