Get Fresh Oysters For P205 For 6 Pieces At This Pop-Up
Who would have the heart to say "No!" to fresh oysters, priced below 50 bucks per piece? Not us, and if neither can you, it's time to make plans to go to 2nd Street Oyster's pop-up at The Podium. This week, August 25 to August 28 (10 am to 10 pm) is their last run at The Podium. But don't worry if you can't squeeze it into your schedule. When you get to the end of this article, you'll find out that 2nd Street Oysters is available elsewhere!
If you're suspicious of its price and how it affects the quality, Yummy.ph got in touch with the oyster shop to ask where they source their oysters. According to 2nd Street Oysters, they source their oysters from Aklan, Japan, and Ireland.
So, what's on the menu? 2nd Street Oysters offers two kinds of raw oysters. The Aklan oysters are priced at P205/6 pieces, P405/12 pieces, and P805/24 pieces. You're only paying P35 (at the most!) for a piece of oyster which is considered a good steal as far as fresh oysters are concerned.
2nd Street Oysters also has Irish oysters. These beauties are more expensive as it's priced at P300 a piece. But hey, if you're curious what makes it different, what justifies a 300-peso-per-piece price, then you should definitely try it if you have the means to splurge.
You can pair your choice of oyster with the store's tomato-based cocktail sauce or vinegar-based mignonette sauce! These are usually the sauces served alongside oysters to complement their flavors.
The experience of eating raw oysters isn't for everyone. Maybe if you're not accustomed to its texture, you can go for the baked versions that 2nd Street Oysters have! You can choose from the Aburi Baked, Three Cheese Regular, Three Cheese with Bacon, Rockefeller Regular, and Rockefeller with Bacon. Here's the menu:
If you're the type who can't eat oysters without rice, the pop-up also has special rice bowls. There's the Oyster Sisig (P190) which tops the fluffy rice with fried oysters tossed in a sisig dressing, and the Oyster Takoyaki (P215) which coats the fried oysters in Japanese sauce and tops it with bonito flakes.
These rice bowls are exclusively available at 2nd Street Oyster's pop-up branch. Fortunately, as shared with Yummy.ph, these rice bowls will eventually be offered at their three restaurants but they will be priced a "little different." In their restaurants, you can also enjoy the raw and baked oysters that they offered during the pop-up, with the addition of Japanese oysters, wine, beer, and soju!
2nd Street Oysters has three branches, located in the north, center, and south of Metro Manila. There's one at Hub Mayon, Quezon City, Legazpi Village, Makati City, and Commune Hall, Evia Lifestyle Center in Las Piñas City.
