Totten Inlet Oysters
The Totten Inlet Oyster is a classic West Coast oyster. It has the signature melon and seaweed flavors and beautifully ridged shells. Compared to other West Coast oysters, the Totten Inlets tend to be on the larger size hovering between 3.25 and 3.5 inches. And with their relatively deep cup, you can expect a mouthful of creamy goodness.
