Austin Oyster Festival: Highlights from the 2018 Event

Highlights from the Austin Oyster Festival 2018

Fact: I can eat my weight in oysters. So, of course, I was pumped to go to the Oyster Fest in Austin! With so many different offerings, Rachel and I were both absolutely stuffed by the end of it. Here’s my rundown and review of the Austin Oyster Festival 2018:

Raw Bar with Gulf and East Coast Oysters

They had both Gulf and East Coast oysters available to try. The East coast ones were more expensive, so ignorantly, I assumed they were the better ones. Wrong-o. They were a lot smaller, and not as flavorful. The Gulf oysters, on the other hand, were fantastic!
