korean food / seoul / Full of the rich smell of the sea! 5 places to eat seasonal oyster dishes in winter – 2047

“Oyster” is known to be good for stamina and beauty, and is one of the foods Napoleon, Casanova, and Cleopatra enjoyed eating in the past. Also, oysters are nicknamed sea milk because they contain many nutrients that are good for the body, such as amino acids, vitamins, iron, and calcium. The flavor of oysters varies depending on where they grow; South Coast oysters have thick grains and a mild sweetness, while West Coast oysters are small in size but have a rich flavor. Typical oysters grown in Korea include Stella Maris in Tongyeong, Cleo in Gangjin, and Cham Gul in Geoje. Stella Maris has an appealing creamy flavor that envelops the mouth the moment you chew it. Cleo is proud of her thick inner skin and is characterized by a rich texture that fills the mouth. Red oyster has a strong salty flavor and contains the rich smell of the sea. In Korea, people enjoy oysters in a variety of ways, starting with oysters in their freshest condition, grilled oysters that bring out the unique flavor and aroma of oysters, oyster rice, which is responsible for a hearty meal, and oyster bosam, which combines plump oysters with tender meat.

“Sakura Oyster Restaurant” is a place that only operates from the beginning of February to the end of April, when cherry oysters are caught. You can find a variety of dishes using cherry oysters, such as grilled dishes, sauces, tempura, and porridge. The signature menu, “Grilled cherry oysters,” is sold in units of 5 kg and serves 2 to 3 servings. The cherry oyster, which is only the palm of an adult's hand, is large in size and has chewy flesh. Cherry oysters are less salty than regular oysters, so eating them with soy sauce enhances their umami flavor. The method of putting kimchi or pickled plums on top of ripe oysters and enjoying them as a side dish is also popular. “Saecap soup,” which is freshly cooked using domestic rice crackers, is also a favorite meal menu. Business hours tend to be flexible, so it's a good idea to check your phone before visiting.

“Kun Village Nutritious Oyster Rice” is an oyster specialty store located in Ganwoldo, Seosan. If you order the signature menu “Nutritious Oyster Rice,” you will receive a free service of oysters that are crispy while the rice is being made. Oyster rice cooked hot in a stone pot contains plenty of garnishes such as wild oysters, ginkgo nuts, pine nuts, walnuts, and dates. The subtle flavor of oysters penetrates deep into the rice and adds a salty yet rich umami flavor to the dish. You can add sesame oil to rice and eat it with a side dish of your choice, such as sweetened soy sauce, cod roe, and kimchi. The various textures, including the crunchiness of nuts, the chewiness of oysters, and the moisture of jujube, blend pleasantly in the mouth. It's a good idea to remove the rice from the stone pot and then pour water to finish it off with rice crackers.
