Small New Zealand's town Bluff is famous for its exceptionally palatable oysters. They are far better than commonly known Pacific oysters as they are more succulent and have a more intense fishy taste similar to a metallic flavour. It may be eaten raw with a dash of lemon, or fried in a thin layer of flour. Their exclusive taste corresponds to the price: a dozen of Bluff Oysters costs $25. The delicacy is available during New Zealand's lobster season, which falls on autumn and winter months.​​
