A Londoner is never without his or her Oyster card. An actual oyster, on the other hand, is a rarity for those who don't have the time or culinarily courageous mates to shoot back a few of these briney bad boys at a restaurant or food market.
Now comes the best thing on wheels since, well, the Boris Bike: the Oyster and Beer Delivery Service, which will whisk local brews and raw delights straight from Billingsgate Market to your door via bicycle. Dinner for two, sorted.
To guarantee next-day delivery, orders should be placed online asap, with a minimum of £7. That'll just about buy you a trio of fresh Colchester oysters dressed with lemon and dressing, Tabasco, or red wine vinaigrette, with a bottle of Kernel Brewery IPA or Porter to wash it down with.
The service is subject to availability, so check ahead to ensure delivery and avoid disappointment. After all, we'd hate for you to get your hopes up over the aphrodisiac effects on your date for Saturday night.
