Snails or Oysters

Simple, which one do you like better?

Snails or



Snails are my favourite food but I just had freshly shucked Oysters on the weekend that tasted incredibly good, it's making me question it. The way I see it, snails can never be bad but Oysters can be either very good or very ordinary. Which ones do you like better?

Fresh raw oysters with a sprinkle of salt and pepper, squeezed lemon juice, and a touch of Sriracha sauce is to die for!

Re: Snails or Oysters

I've only tried snails once and I thought they were delicious. Oysters are great but I liked snails better.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Oysters, in both the culinary and Kubrickian senses of the terms.

Re: Snails or Oysters

I love fried oysters and oyster rockerfeller, but I cannot swallow a raw one. I just can't do it.

Escargot with lots of garlic, parsley and butter is one of my all time favs. Delish

I like both but I'll go with oysters if forced to choose.
