  • i think they look like big snot boogers. i won't eat them raw. I've considered try oysters fried. I'm from New Orleans, and I'm 23 years old and NEVER tried them. I can't get over how they look.

  • I've never had an oyster.

    Are we talking about raw or cooked clams? I've never eaten them raw and never would. Cooked clams, however, dipped in melted butter with a dash of pepper, are absolutely divine.

  • ETA - the clams are much better when cooked on the bbq as opposed to steaming. My personal preference anyway. :)

  • Clams are kind of rubberey when cooked. I never had them raw. They are awesome breaded and fried. I never had an oyster though.

  • oh man, you gotta try 'em. if you can find a bar that serves them, get a half dozen oysters with some hotsauce or horseradish on them. suck them out of the shell and follow with a tequila shot. nothin better sister, don't knock it till ya try it.
