Eventide Oyster Co. | Portland, ME

on a hot summer day, couldnt find anything better to do other than drinking some beer and slurping on some oysters. we drove to portland, me for some fresh oysters straight from the source.

i enjoyed everything at eventide oyster co. except the pig ear terrine. food was very fresh. my friends thought the seafood dishes lacked flavors, but i enjoyed as they way they were. i dont like my seafood heavily flavored which can completely overpower their delicate and subtle natural flavor. seafood has to be very fresh itself and minimum seasoning needed to complement its natural flavor.
