Apparently, oysters taste best and have the most nutrition in the winter season (From November to early March) in Korea. I bought 2 packs of oysters (total 400 g) for the price of one the other day and we enjoyed it a lot. They are usually about 2500 won (US $2.60) for 200g pack. Oysters are often referred to as “the milk of the sea“, because they contain lots of calcium. They are also very popular as a stamina food for Korean guys.
