Hailing from the East Cost but raised in the Totten Inlet, Virginicas a crowd pleaser. A sharp brine gives way to delightful buttery finish.
Crassostrea virginica: Introduced to San Francisco Bay from the East Coast in 1869 and to Willapa Bay, WA in the 1890s. Attractive pear-shaped shell with a somewhat flat top shell and slightly concave bottom shell. The meat color is a beige-cream with a thin slightly black or brown-trimmed mantle. The flavor combines a clean, briny, smooth sweetness with a pronounced mineral finish.
