Back to Product Guide
This small, deeply cupped oyster is named for its bay where it originated on the Japanese island of Kyushu, although ours are currently grown here on the West Coast.
In spite of the fact that they are quite small, their salty, sweet flavor makes up for what they lack in size. Kumamotos are a favorite for beginning oyster eaters.
For Your Menu
These tiny, tasty oysters need little help to impress your customers – maybe just an inventive Asian-themed mignonette or a refreshing ponzu sauce.
For Your Waitstaff
These tiny and tasty oysters are perfect for the first-time oyster-eater.
For Your Retail Display
If you have customers that have never taken oysters home to shuck, Kumamotos are a small way to get started! Don’t forget to recommend they also pick up some cocktail sauce or fresh lemons.
