Oysters Remoulade @ Acme Oyster House
Remoulade is more associated with cold shrimp than with hot fried oysters. It’s a measure of the goodness of the sauce that the latter combination works so well. This one is the white, mayonnaise-based French-style remoulade, and it makes a great appetizer at the Acme. It’s usually made with smaller oysters, the better for them to fry up especially crisp. I’ve been served as many as a dozen of them (though not always). With a light appetizer, it serves as a good entree for about $10.
