Hood Canal and Southern Puget Sound

Hammersley Inlet

“People from Montana go crazy for this oyster,” my server said as he plunked my first Hammersley Inlet in front of me. I’m not sure what to make of this, but it’s hard to argue. The Hammer is big, plump, creamy-white, strong, deeply fluted, and unsubtle—everything I’d want in an oyster if I was from Montana. Hammersley Inlet is one of the South Sound inlets known for fat, funky, full-flavored oysters. Hammers have a strong cucumber finish with a metal chaser.
