Delicious oysters, so fresh and well presented. No wonder they are so tasty, the tanks are a great idea so that you can really see how they are kept fresh.

I ate at the Mussel Monger inside Mojo Market. The oysters were huge and delicious. The offered several wine options to be taken with the oysters, which was convenient so I didnt need to go to the general bar inside the market. Great value!
