Oysters Rockefeller

Despite the fact that the weather was less than warm this weekend, I was determined to partake in some essential summer dining - seafood. We headed to TAPS Fish House & Brewery in Brea, Orange County, California) to get our fix.

My friend had never tried oysters before and I had only had them once (last month when I went to New Orleans I had a fried oysters po' boy sandwich) so we both decided to try the Oysters Rockefeller. The version we tried were topped with spinach, hollandaise sauce, and bacon. Um, I have been missing out! They are delish!

I also ordered the lobster and shrimp role, my friend chose the ahi tuna burger, and we both got a cocktail.

The prices are a little on the high side - our split lunch check was $33 per person before tip - but totally worth the splurge. And if you're looking to just get out and get a drink, there are over 30 styles of ales and lagers on the menu.

If you live in Southern California and find yourself in Brea, I recommend TAPS Fish House & Brewery.

P.S. Because I didn't get my last Man Candy post up this week, look for one more link up next week. It's the last time I'll be hosting the bloghop so stop by and join the fun. I hope you'll blog about your man candy of the moment and link up!

Pictures like that make me wish I liked oysters. I think I'll just take the cocktail and let everyone else enjoy the food!
