The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking. Today's Snackshot is of fried Kumamoto oyster with yuzu kosho aioli and squid ink bubbles at O Ya in Boston (taken 3/4/2011).

Normally a fried Kumomoto oyster would likely corner your attention, but the mesmerizing sphere of glittering squid ink bubbles set atop it is a real scene-stealer. It will certainly give pause, but if you're lucky enough to sit down to omakase at O Ya it will be just one otherworldy-looking dish in a parade of beautiful, distinctive courses prepared at Tim and Nancy Cushman's acclaimed Leather District restaurant.
