Shucked Oyster & Seafood Bar @ BIG, Publika

Price: Splurge 
Cuisine: Fresh seafood 
Recommended For: An indulgent pit-stop while shopping through BIG's aisles 
Catphobia-Friendly?: Oh, yes 

Sometimes, you crave for something super basic like nasi lemak, which shouldn't be too hard to tend to. And sometimes, you crave for something rather specific like a platter of oysters. The question is, where to find a good plate of fresh oysters in KL? (besides buffets, that is). 

Having a total light bulb moment, we set sail to Shucked! The little seafood bar is located inside Ben's Independent Grocer, and boasts a gobsmacking display of glorious seafood on ice! 

We zeroed in on the reason we were there: bucketful of oysters flown in from various countries including New Zealand, France, Australia and the Netherlands. 

The fun thing about Shucked is that you can opt for a tasting portion, so instead of springing for a whole dozen of your choice of oysters, you can set set up a tasting platter with sets of three. 

We decided on the New Zealander Coramandel (RM28 for 3 pieces / RM96 per dozen) and the Dutch Creuses No 3 (RM24 for 3 pieces / RM88 per dozen), and lapped them up in all their brilliantly brine-y goodness! 

We can't wait to return and try the other seafood favourites on their menu, including herring, gravlax, sashimi and ceviche.
