Anyone with a craving for molluscs should go check Shanghai's first dedicated oyster bar, The Plump Oyster, a slick space where you can sit comfortably around the bar and watch the staff shuck the oysters. American chef David Brode has put together a huge selection of imported oysters, a unique wine list and an amazing list of gins. Some of the oyster varieties on offer at the moment include David Herve from France (447 yuan/US$70.9/ eight), Blue Pearl from New Zealand (209 yuan/eight), Fine de Claire from France (254 yuan/eight). However, the oyster bar imports many kinds and staff will help you select your favorite tastes, from light to creamy. It also offers delicious bar snacks, including house guacamole and chips, Italian cured meats and Kentucky bourbon barrel ale beer-batter chicken. The Plump Oyster also has an outdoor patio, which provides a perfect place at this time of year to enjoy a drink and savor some tasty molluscs.
