Paris Fridays: Huitrerie Regis

Sweet. Briny. Oceanic. There are few food items in life that can mimic the taste of fresh raw oysters. France is one of the top producers of oysters and the French certainly do enjoy these bivalve treats. 

Huitrerie Regis was definitely one of the highlights of our French culinary journey. The restaurant itself is tiny but beautifully decorated with blue spheres hanging from the ceilings and everything is clean, white, and beautiful. Hands down these oysters were the best I've ever had (sorry Seattle!) and if we ever return to Paris we will definitely be here to try the ultra-coveted Belon oysters! 

For approximately 29-30 euros, you receive a dozen oysters, 1 glass of white wine, and an espresso to end the meal. A perfectly paired meal. It is required that all individuals who enter the restaurant must order at least a dozen per person so definitely only bring your raw food inclined friends. 

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful (seafood-filled) weekend!
