  • Description

    East meets West in the best possible way.

    Known for their firm, full meats and unique synthesis of brine and sweetness, our Totten Inlet Virginicas are considered to be some of the finest oysters around.

    Traditionally, they could only be found on the reefs of the Atlantic Coast at depths of 8-25 feet. That is, until they were introduced to the Pacific Coast in the 1890s. Notoriously finicky in our waters, they only thrive on the beaches of Totten Inlet where the algae-rich waters from neighboring Little Skookum inlet mix with the deeper waters of Puget Sound.

    The taste of our Totten Inlet Virginica is so distinctly unique, when matched up against the top East coast grown Virginica at an East Coast Shellfish Growers Association competition, our Virginica won Best Flavor

    Quantity: 30 count
    Flavor Profile: Crisp with a firm, crunchy texture and heavy briny flavors, which lead to a buttery taste, with a hint of sweetness at the finish.
    Size: Approximately 2-3 inch shell.

    Totten Inlet Virginca

    Probably the best textured of all oysters sold. Uniquely briny, luscious and with a unique finish. Really a good oyster.

    Virginicas are the best!

    Have bought Virginicas from your Melrose store since it opened and from Oyster Bill Whitbeck at the Seattle farmer's markets. They are the best in the world. Learned shucking from the famous Dave Leck and now have 8-10 different knives. Keep up the g

    Totten Inlet Virginica

    I discovered Taylor Shellfish in 1986 when I went to the annual oyster festival in Shelton, WA. I have been ordering oysters from Taylor ever since. Of the many wonderful varieties I think my favorite oyster is the Totten Inlet Virginica. Perfect for eating or baking or frying. They also are easier to open than many other varieties. Taylor is reason enough to move to Washington. but luckily they deliver to New Yorkl.

    Virginica Superb!

    These oysters are delicious. They arrive extremely fresh and I ate them over two days. With the proper knife, they open easily (trust yourself), and they are delectable with just the right dose of brine. I love west coast oysters, and these are terrific!

    Virginica Oyster

    Oysters arrived on schedule and in fine condition. We ate half raw on the halfshell and the rest baked at 450 for about 4min. then popped open and topped with our fennel-shallot butter. Dip some bread and sip, well maybe not sip some Chablis and wow what a treat. Can't wait to do it again soon.
