Oysters at The Drunken Duck

This was a big tick in the gastronomical box for me. I've wanted to try oysters for a while now. There was something about the way the oysters were described on the menu at The Drunken Duck in Ambleside that made me go for it. They were served with a red onion relish and a bloody Mary. It was probably the alcoholic content that did it.

I ordered two oysters for my starter. They were served on ice with lemon and the relish and bloody Mary came on the side. I knocked them back and wow you get a bit of a rush as you eat them. They were kind of salty and juicy yet quickly disappeared into nothingness. The vodka and tomato juice went down a treat as a chaser. I was so impressed with the size of the shells I took this little picture afterwards on my phone.

Now I've ticked that box I need another little foodie challenge...
