Oyster Po Boy

Oyster Po Boy

Oyster Po Boys are a great change of pace from the original po Boy. Over the years there have been many variations to the po boy. The seafood po boys have become the most popular over the years. My favorite is the shrimp po boy, but most New Orleanians actual love the oyster variation. This po boy have a different taste to it. When i eat one i have to have remoulade or cocktail sauce to adda special spicy flavour to my sandwich. All great restaurnts in New Orleans have a Oyster po Boy. The main ingredient is of course fied Louisiana oysters from the Gulf of Mexico. The have a distinct and wonderful taste that will make you wonder why you have waited so long to try them.
