Bluff oysters are a New Zealand delicacy. Why are they so special?
They are grown in the cold clear waters in the Fouveaux Strait, which is located in the stretch of water between Stewart Island and the tip of the southern most part of South Island of NZ at Bluff. It is really cold down there, and very clean [of pollution]. This makes for a very special environment from which the oyster grows.
The oyster grows wild and is harvested between March and August to ensure we maintain stocks for years to come.
At Erik’s we serve fresh bluff oysters deep fried or you can eat them raw
They are expensive little things this is once again to ensure they are sustainable and we can all enjoy them for years to come
