Consistently my favorite oyster with the Shigoku. Might me small, but packs big flavor.
Shells were thin. Too easy to shuck and the meat inside was limp, meaning they had probably been harvested many days before shipping. One of the 30 oysters was dry upon shucking. Taste overall was average. Very disappointed given the high cost and $40 express shipping. Not up to par with past experiences with Taylor and Hama Hama. Has this been a bad season for oysters?
Loved these. Really bright, clean mineral flavor. Not the easiest oyster to shuck, so maybe start with a bigger one for your first time. Or just go for it!
The delivery was great, however we got a few (3) oysters with nothing inside but sod. A little disappointing considering the price of the 60 oysters we bought and the size of some the oysters were a little larger than a quarter. The flavor was good but I think minor improvements would be better!
Arrived right on time. So delicious and fresh! We will order from Taylor again!
We love kumamotos! We ordered them for NYE to go with our seafood extravaganza. They were wonderful. We only had one out of the 30 we decided to toss. We had half of them raw on the halfshell and the other half for oysters Rockefeller the next day. We enjoyed it so much, we're ordering the sample pack for Valentine's Day.
They were fabulous and a perfect New Year’s Eve treat.
I ordered for New Years Eve! 30 of 30 were perfect. Beautiful and very fresh to shuck. We loved the fresh taste of the sea! Best Kumamoto’s ever! Highly recommend Taylor.
Absolutely recommend purchasing with Taylor Shellfish Farms. Superior product shipped with speed from Washington state to Illinois with consistent assurance and communication from the service team. Product was fresh and clean and very well packed. A great way to celebrate holidays with tasty regional specialties brought straight to your home.
