But first, what did the one oyster say to the other oyster? Nice mussels!
The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar spiced up their store at the Mojo Market in Sea Point.
One of my favourite spots in Sea Point is the local Mojo Market. From their famous pulled pork to their signature pizzas and the live music happening daily – you can never go wrong.
Recently, The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar renovated and expanded their trendy space at the market which is open seven days a week from 10:30am to 10pm, catering to all the seafoodies in the Mother City.
But let’s talk about the owner for a sec. What a cool and inspiring guy… Kyle Dods has sold over 400 000 oysters and over 20 tons of mussels to date. Imagine when he reaches the half million mark! #MORECELEBRATIONS
Lekker West Coast vibes
Sourced from Saldanha Bay, the freshly farmed produce gets its uniqueness from the quality of water in the region and is known for some of the world’s best oysters and mussels. “We supply Capetonians with some the best produce in the world and it is time for all to know this,” says Kyle. Fact.
Kyle sources directly from key ocean farm partnerships in the West Coast town of Saldanha Bay, where 90% of all oysters and 100% of all mussels in the country, are sourced.
Ummm, so what makes them extra special?
Their oysters are stored in a huge submersible tank, which pumps sea water through so that the oysters are filtering themselves right until they are shucked and served. Every morning the mussels and oysters are harvested and delivered to the outlets, daily.
Kyle also insists on serving large oysters, which are ‘plump, meaty, sweet and a delicious mouthful’ with very little fuss.
“There’s truly nothing like cracking open an oyster, seeing the sea water burst out of it, and enjoying it, the way nature intended.” Kyle, owner
