I lived in Belgium for 13 months.... they are all very big into seafood there, mussles and fries is by far the most pervasive national dish.... raw oysters on the half shell is a close second... very good stuff-
(an aphrodisiac so they say... ;-) another exchange student (a southern cracker from South Carolina, as he was want to discribe himself) disliked them intensely and discribed his first few ones as merely a mouth full of sea water, accidentally swollowed while swimming in the ocean... ;-)

yes sort of squishy, and rather strange taste besides the salty bit... but enjoyed with a good glass of white wine- in my opinion they are exquisite...

but glad that you followed your adventourous heart and at least tried them.... (I honoustly have never had oysters in anyother fassion than raw... mostly because I rarely see them on a menue at all)

"a mouthful of sea water"....hahaha! Now there's a description to turn you away from something! You should try the rockafeller, it's really yummy. If you can find somewhere that sells it. If you're ever near Detroit, I'll take ya. (:

a great a local, and yet world renowned, seafood place is Jack's... haven't been there in a while... but perhaps I'll have to make a point of checking out to see if they have Oysters Rockefeller...
so if your over Albany way...or if I'm over your way...
Then it sounds like a plan!
