Eating grilled oyster on a town near the sea has bought me so much good memories. Those are all about friend gathering, football games and cool evenings in summer. After moving back to the mainland, it is quite hard to find high quality grilled oyster in restaurants. Thanks to the modernized quick transportation, I can purchase very fresh oyster in our local sea food market. So I would like to introduce you this personal yummy dish.
