Oyster Banquet

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/11/5

Oysters originate from the Fuxiang Bay oyster field in Hengqin. The Hengqin Island is an off island in the south of Zhuhai City. It is about 40 minutes’ drive from the ferry quay of the Jiuzhou Harbor. The oyster field has an area of approximately a thousand mu. It is opposite to Luhuan, an off Island of Macau. The period from November to April of every year is the ideal season for savoring oysters as oysters maturate gradually during winter times after being cultivated for more than a half year. The oysters raised in the Hengqin Island are especially large in size and thick in meat due to good quality water. They can be fried crisp, scalded, baked on iron boards and baked with ginger and scallion. It is also excellent for the dish of “surrounding the hot pot”, a chafing dish cooked in a terrine. Oysters contain rich protein, which is believed to have effects of strengthening yang and preserving face. Therefore, as the oyster season arrives, a great number of “oyster guests” will come a long way from Macau, Zhuhai, Zhongshan and other areas to gorge on oysters.
