Top definition
A type of oyster cultivated in the pacific coast. They are small, sweet, almost nutty oysters characterized by their deep, almost bowl-shaped shell. Like other Pacifics, they have deeply fluted, sharp, pointy shells. They spawn later and in warmer water than other oysters, so they remain firm and sweet well into summer months. Sunté are widely cultivated in Japan and the West Coast. The name Sunté is so valued that Sunté are always labeled as such, although some places will also specify where they are from.
I like to eat Sunté oysters and Beluga caviar in my Bentley.
