Food and words.

Oysters can quickly divide a room, some hate them, and some can't stop singing their praises. Anyone who loves these bite sized aphrodisiacs will probably have a favourite way to eat them. It could be shooting back a freshly shucked oyster sans any toppings or trimmings, or it could be a classic baked Kilpatrick oyster that makes them wild. So we want to know what oysters are your favourite, and just where they can be found. Help us find Sydney's best oysters.

The Sydney Cove Oyster Bar specialises in oyster and seafood, so of course they have some tasty oysters on their list. Try them natural with red wine eschalot vinegar, or why not go for some Asian inspiration with the Flying Fish oysters, topped with rice, seaweed, pickled ginger, flying fish roe, and soy. While the menu offerings are delicious, it seems a bit of a pity that they don't have a larger oyster menu.

One place with a tiny oyster menu still deserves to be on the list. The one oyster offering at Yok Thai Tapa & Wine is absolutely divine. You'll have a fresh oyster, with limi, chill Nham-Jim, and crispy shallots. This oyster has the perfect flavour and texture combination, and while it is the only oyster on the menu, it goes great with the rest of their tapas menu, and it is worth going to Yok Thai just to give this one a try.

For an Oyster Bar with a better selection, try the Chase Oyster Bar and Dining. They have classic, French, and Italian natural oysters, and some tasty cooked ones too. Of course they have Kilpatrick, but you can also try the Alexander with salami and spicy sauce, or Mornay, with a creamy cheese sauce. For something a bit different, try one of their oyster shooters, its definitely a different way to shot back an oyster.

So let us know if you've discovered some delectable oysters somewhere in Sydney. They might be found at a seafood restaurant, or a specialised oyster bar, or perhaps you just know a restaurant that serves delicious oysters to start the meal. Join the discussion in the comments, and fill us in on where Sydney's best oysters can be found.

Best oysters ive had in Sydney: the boathouse. Simple dressing flavours so they don't mask the absolute freshness of the wide oyster selection.
