Oyster Power Hour x2

Attempting to eat 120 of these in two hours.

Recently read from Kaelyn’s blog about an all-you-can-eat Friday oyster night at Private Affairs in Joo Chiat. Usually I avoid restaurants that invite bloggers for food tastings. I fear that people would think I accepted an invitation. But I do love oysters and at $38++ which include two glasses of Cava was too good an opportunity to pass up.

I wanted to see how many oysters I could eat. I set a goal of 50. But that seemed too easy. So I upped it to 10 dozen. 120 seemed challenging yet do-able. Although I don’t think I’ve eaten more than a dozen in one sitting.

I asked a few close foodie friends to join me, they declined on going into an oyster eat off. They wanted to savour this magnificent little creature and not kill the luxury factor by bingeing. But they all expressed excitement about watching me try to eat 120 of them. One said I would puke, another wagered I would get sick after 30.

So anyone interested in a friendly oyster eat off match this friday? Or maybe you just want to watch this culinary extreme sport? It would be nice to have some support as I try to eat as many oysters as I can. I’ll be at Private Affairs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Leave a comment below or email me if you are coming so I can change my reservation.

(Let me reiterate that this is by no means organized by the restaurant or their PR people. It’s a sad state of affairs that I had to make that disclaimer. Also sorry about the lack of posts. Been busy. New one should be up soon!)
