Tasting Fashion! #Fresh oysters and more @ Gumbo & Oyster Bar

Is it already that time of year to enjoy delicious oysters?? Wait... How do you eat it?..


Referred to as the "Milk of the Sea", and loved by all ages around the world.
Enjoyed raw, fried, grilled or steamed, the fresh scent of the ocean can still be smelled.
This unchanged deep flavor and smooth texture even after being cooked, presents a harmony of various tastes in one bite, yet somehow gives off a "fashionable" image.

From November to April of the following year, in Japan is the best time to enjoy oysters (Oh so fresh).
The "Gumbo & Oyster Bar" in Shinjuku is putting a fashionable spin on a not appealing to some dish.
Shinjuku? Fashionable? Well, speaking of fashion ^^ you're more than likely referring to Lumine Est Shinjuku. Located on the 8th floor of Lumine Est Shinjuku is where you'll find Gumbo & Oyster Bar.



ルミネ (LUMINE)

Shibuya, Ikebukuro and Yuraku-cho etc…Each Lumine location is actually attached to their respective stations. 
Upon arriving from the train, your shopping can begin immediately! Just like Japan to make shopping even more convenient! Lumine comes from the French word “luminarie” , meaning, “light” and, fusing this with the English word “illumination” we see the birth of the name, “LUMINE”. Sounds right...right?
From the South exit of Shinjuku Station, there are two Lumine Shops, 1 and 2. They are both connected in Shinjuku via the East exit including the “LUMINE EST Shinjuku store”.

Fresh raw oysters caught in Japanese waters.
Depending on where the oyster originates from, there is a slight difference in taste.
Hiroshima Prefecture, Hokkaido and Iwate Prefecture, etc.. aside from taste differences, you can also notice differences in size and thickness.
To those who are able to drink, we definitely recommend a glass of wine to go along with your oysters.
