The Oyster Bar by Aptus Seafood at South Melbourne Market offers the freshest oysters straight from the ocean. It's not a happy hour situation, either – they're serving those $1.30 oysters from the early hours right into the evening. If you're feeling extra opulent, purchase a dozen for $15 and rest easy knowing they're sourced directly from farmers – expect Coffin Bay oysters from South Australia or Blackmans Bay oysters from Tasmania. Plus the bar offers lemon, hot sauce, vinegar and other sauces to dress up those briny morsels.
If you're reading this, then we assume you adore oysters. There's not really much middle ground with these tasty treats of the sea. And if there's one thing that unites oyster enthusiasts, it's the joy of being able to eat them by the dozen and have change to spare for a great glass of sparkling on the side.
