Gulf Coast

Gulf Coast

Gulf of Mexico   Map it!

Any oyster fished from the Gulf waters of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida. Size, flavor, and consistency are all over the place, but generally this is going to be a wild, very cheap oyster with little brine.

    Nasty. Big, thick-shelled beasts with very little flavor. I opted to at least give them one star, due to some fond memories with these things on Bourbon Street.

    consistantly good, but very average. A good oyster feed oyster where you intend to eat dozens. Low salinity but clean taste.

    Gulf coasters can be amazing and also pretty boring…that’s the problem with the generic name. One of these days…

    A good clean “intro to oysters 101” variety if it’s not too too big and intimidating.
