You know life is good when you decide you can stop off for a spontaneous oyster and cocktail brunch by the Sydney harbour. We had planned a ferry trip to Rose Bay for lunch but had underestimated the number of hours between check out at the hotel and lunch. It was nice weather so we took a leisurely stroll through the city to Circular Quay to enjoy the amazing views.
Chewbacca suggested we treat ourselves to some oysters. It was Jenny's birthday and there's no better way to celebrate a young ladies continued advancement through adulthood than with some bubblies and treasures from the ocean.
We apparently arrived before the kitchen was open but we cracked open a bottle of champagne and by the time we were half way through, we were able to order oysters.
Oysters natural and with wakame seaweed, soy and mirin
The oysters come in natural or a variety of toppings and we chose half a dozen of the natural with half a dozen of wakame seaweed topping.
The combination of sunshine, waterfront views, freshly shucked oysters and chilled champagne was something out of my happiest dreams. It was a simple tasting in terms of quantity and variety but I can't think of a better way to enjoy Circular Quay. We left feeling very merry and content.
