Ms Teatime Says:

Meet Oyster Ponzu-san from Boruto, a Japanese shellfish whose hometown is in Hiroshima.

Even though fresh oysters are highly sought after by many, they were never my type of food. Before meeting Oyster Ponzu-san, my encounters with raw oysters (fried oysters are another story though) were always unpleasant; each time I tried to "deep-kiss" one, I will end up gagging. After many tries, I avoid them altogether.

So when I heard that we were going to be served raw oysters at Boruto, I was apprehensive. But when the gigantic and plump Oyster Ponzu-san arrived at my table dressed in a spicy red radish and ponzu shaved ice, I was mesmerized! Oyster Ponzu-san looked so irresistible I could not say "No"!

As I slurped down the cold, firm and creamy oyster (with a few bites in between), I confirmed my love for it. I like how the saltish and citrusy ponzu granita bring out the sweetness of the oyster while the spicy radish lends an interesting spice kick. Even though the oyster is huge, I won’t mind having a few more.

I once read that nobody dislikes fresh oysters and if you happened to be that nobody, you just haven’t met your Mr. or Ms. Right yet. Well, after trying the Oyster Ponzu, I can attest to this! Depending on where they are from, oysters can vary from being sweet to briny to metallic or even a mix. My perfect match is obviously with the sweet variant.

For those of you who have yet to find your Oyster match, give the Oyster Ponzu from Boruto a try. This might just be your Mr. or Ms. Oyster Right!
