A crowd-funded start-up hoping to bring oysters back to the masses has taken its unique proposition on the road in a double decker bus. The Bloody Oyster – fresh from a shuck-cessful run of pop-up events around town – will be found parked beside the River Thames this summer, as part of the Southbank’s Festival of Love, 28 June – 31 August.
As well as oysters – deep fried, poached and fresh – the mobile restaurant will also serve up its signature Bloody Marys from 11am-11pm, Tuesday-Sunday.
Regular readers will of course recognise the Bloody Oyster from ETM Group’s recent Slider Decider competition, held at Docklands pub The Gun. Their submission, the Oyster Po Boy – a deep fried oyster burger with celeriac and caper remoulade – will be among the offerings available from the bus, to be parked in Belvedere Road. Or there’s the Bloody Mary oyster – poached in its its own liquor and gratinated with spicy tomato compote and bacon breadcrumbs.
