Of Oysters and Other Wonderful Dishes

When we arrived in LV, my mom and sister decided to take us grocery shopping. Luckily these were available. *a great big hug for my sis who bought the box*

We were so excited when we opened the box and saw huge oyster shells!

Hubby suddenly became the oyster man, opening the shells with an improvised tool

These were the rest of the dishes on the table that night

Tequila Lime Chicken wings

Crispy Pata

My mom’s shrimp and ketchup dish


But the biggest hit would have to be the delicious Kilawin Oysters!

We were happy to see that not only were he oyster shells large, its contents were fresh and of good size as well.  I do love baked oysters but eating them fresh would have to be my favorite way of devouring them!  Once we placed the oyster meat in a concoction of vinegar, garlic, onions and pepper, everyone was raring to grab a piece!

What a delicious dinner!
How do you like your oysters prepared?

  2. What an amazing meal! I’m not as fond of raw oysters; instead, I love fried oyster – the way they are prepared in the South! 😎

  3. Hi Robert, a tonkotsu ramen recipe would be great…that reminds me, i have to post our new ramen find soon!

    Hi Tangled Noodle, i don’t think ive ever tried fried oysters before unless its the same thing as the oyster cakes they serve in japanese restaurants.

  7. Hi FLF, the palabok was really good! There are several restaurants in LV which caters to those who miss good old Filipino food and the crispy pata and palabok came from one of them. Funny you noticed the place mats! hehehe!

    Hi Dyanie! really, you’ve tasted the shrimp and ketchup recipe too?! sarap noh?! sorry but the crispy pata was gone in a few minutes after serving!! *snicker*
