Carlsbad Aquafarm – San Diego
What a stroke of luck. Rob and I were already planning to explore the Hillcrest Farmers Market on this sunny day, but first went to breakfast in the gaslamp.
While we were there, I touched bases with Daniel, a cocktail acquaintance from my last trip to San Diego. We weren’t able to meet up for breakfast, but did stop into his new home in the gaslamp to say hello. By coincidence, he was heading to the farmers market as well, and dropped the win hint: amazing oysters could be had at the market.
Sold! We had our rendezvous at the market stall for Carlsbad Aquafarm, and feasted of a pile of freshly shucked oysters. They were $2 each.
They were crisp, every so slightly briny, smooth tasting and only needed the slightest drop of lemon juice to bring everything together into a juicy creamy mouthful of a delicious ocean bounty.
An unexpected highlight, fo sho. Jopsy joined us as well and popped a few oysters. When did I start loving oysters so much?
