Conwy .

I second Conwy. Buy a lovely big net of them directly off the chap who collects them. He's down at the Quay. Best in the world!

Why don't you buy some and cook your own. We find that using cider instead of wine is much tastier.
We forage our own from a secret 😉 place in Essex.

Were you the same person asking about finding work with limited spoken English, or an I getting confused!

Chewbacca Sun 27-Sep-20 21:12:15

No Phoenix, no confusion. Posted today @ 18.49 with a slightly different name:

Why are you suspicious? Don't like to feel I have been taken in. hmm
maybe just because I'm a Russian girl? grin
I'm joking of course

I'm happy to help anyone, when I can, but it makes me sad to use my time when I'm being played.

What a weird question.

Have you found a job yet?

For moules et frites, any Belgo restaurant IMO.

It’s exactly the same name in the other thread chewbacca no 49 in it for me to see

I always found my own at low tide in deep rocky areas.
North Wales always had lots.

Chewbacca Sun 27-Sep-20 22:28:41

I can't find the thread now BlueBelle! You're probably right though; I copied and pasted the post and probably got the last 2 digits of the time of the post included in the name.

Mersea Island

Dorset Shellfish, a family fishing business at Weymouth.

Moules marinière with cream, garlic and parsley, as a starter or a main course, absolutely delicious.

Why do you think so?

oh not yet...
I thought about marketing courses (smm), remote work, so that I would not be too dependent on the language.
but I am considering other options...

but for now we wanted to go and eat delicious mussels. thanks!

We occasionally get new posters who try to trick us into answering fake queries
Because your English seems very good and your questions quite strange people are doubtful about you being a genuine poster
Maybe introduce yourself and tell people a bit about yourself

PetitFromage Mon 28-Sep-20 18:39:50

Whitstable, also for oysters. I agree that cider is a good substitute for wine.

Chewbacca Mon 28-Sep-20 18:48:05

To be fair, it's rather difficult to advise you on that as no one knows whereabouts in the country you are and the UK is blessed with several areas that have excellent fresh shellfish.
You really don't need to worry about your command of the English language by the way; its excellent.

Yes, you should be able to get a job OP without English lessons.

Now, I visited somewhere with the est mussels a while ago hmm, where was it

Cockles and mussels alive, alive O.

Callistemon Mon 28-Sep-20 19:40:24

Yes! Remembered.

Tauranga, New Zealand.
Not really possible pro tem though.

MawB2 Mon 28-Sep-20 19:46:45

So why might a member feel we are being “played” ?

Well
I take it you are familiar with Google?
If I wanted to know where to go in the U.K. for mussels, I would use Google, not expect a grandparents’ website with members all over the world to come up with suggestions without the faintest idea where you are

If I wanted career advice, in the same way , I would do my homework, setting out my skills and qualifications, experience, preferred location, availability etc.

I find it hard to believe your approach to either question is serious.

Why are they making fake requests? I don't understand.
About me - i sometimes use a translator, look at words and check it.
I am here (in London) recently, befor I helped my husband at work, but now I want to be independent. so I think about work. he advised me options, but I don't like them - an lash master for example. so I decided to ask for advice here. I read Facebook groups for Russians, but they only talked about working as a cleaner or working in warehouses
