I’m eating 100 Items off of 7 X 7s SF Big Eat List. You can see the rest of entries to this series here. On my birthday my friends took me to the city to make some hard-core headway on this list, it was fun. I wish you had been there with us. :)
#32 Sweetwater Oysters at Hog Island Oyster Co.
The SF Ferry Building is paradise. What is better than eating delicious food while looking out at the Bay Bridge? But scary things lurk even in paradise and when we came upon Hog Island Oyster Co. I knew my moment of reckoning had arrived.
I'm not an oyster virgin (I had some crazy deliciousness when I was in NOLA) but I do have a tendency to develop food neurosis. This happened immediately prior to eating these beauties.
As I got ready to slurp the oyster my brain went crazy like this
"OMG. Are these things alive? Is it going to start wiggling in my mouth. I can't handle that. Maybe it will wiggle down my throat. Holy crap! I have to eat it anyway, it's on the list. I'm supposed to be brave and try new food experiences. EAT THE OYSTER. JUST DO IT WUSS."
Obviously, it was a very calm moment. Get ready to experience it in picture format.
Verdict: The experience was very harrowing. I have no idea if they were good but I ate one!
