These crazy good oysters were not found in NJ
Yes, we travel for food.
Over the weekend, Jodi and I headed south to Florida, no, not for food, just a trip to see friends and get to the beach.
For most, it's considered the off-season, but for us, quiet, less crowded beaches and water temps in the 60s are perfect. Then enter the oysters.
"Murder Point" oysters, to be specific. They get their name from the location in Alabama formerly called "Myrtle Point" until one guy killed another guy over the oysters. Hence, Murder Point.
We hit two restaurants for dinner for our quick getaway to Panama City Beach, Florida.
The first, "Hunt and Gather" was a spectacular place featuring oysters, deviled eggs, and a duck confit french fry dish that I'd travel back to just for a few hours to grab lunch and return.
The second place also had delicious, perfect oysters that are shucked in front of you. Outstanding, slightly different vibe with the "Let's Go Brandon" sticker on the oven hood, and we loved it.
I ordered a second helping of the "Fried Pork Shank", called "Dat Cajun Place", we will be back for sure.
