Shucked Is Cronulla's New Hip Hop-Inspired Oyster Bar

Slurp down seafood in view of the ocean at Cronulla's new hip hop oyster hut. Located on Gerrale Street just opposite South Cronulla Beach, Shucked Oyster Bar opened for business earlier this month, serving shellfish, burgers and booze to the clamouring masses.

Get it? Clamouring? See what we did there?

Shucked is the brainchild of chef Luke Collins, who previously owned Luke Benchmark Restaurant & Oyster Bar in Sylvania. This new venture promises to be a more laid-back affair, with the chef telling Good Food that "people here want quality in a simpler, more relaxed setting."

As you might have guessed, the main drawcard on the menu is the oysters. You can get them with a dash of lemon, or served with more extravagant toppings such as wasabi and pickled ginger. There's also a 'posh takeaway' section that offers burgers, calamari, battered fish and spicy fried chicken, as well as side options including fries, potato scallops and a gourmet cheese plate for one. On the beverage front they've got beer, wine and cocktails – basically everything you need for watching the sun go down over the ocean.

The walls of the bar are decorated with graffiti portraits of famous musicians, including Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse and Biggie Smalls. Starting Thursday, Shucked will also play host to a number of live music acts as part of Australian Music Week. For the full lineup, go here.

Shucked Oyster Bar is located on Gerrale Street, Cronulla opposite South Cronulla Beach. Their opening hours are noon until late Tuesday through Sunday. For more information, check them out on Facebook.
