the gorgeous fresh taste of Oysters (preferably New Zealand Bluff oysters) with the sharp tang of Lime and chilli ice, absolutely fabulous, will definately have you coming back for more. May even convert those not so keen on raw oysters. Great for parties as the lime and chilli ice keeps the oysters fresh and cool.
