I don’t do happy hour often, but when I do it’s at Chewies! They have buck a shuck oysters! Need I say more?
Okay to be honest it’s only been in the last 2 years that I’ve started eating oysters and boy was I glad that I started! They have a new rule here where each person is only allowed to order 6 oysters at a time per order because sometimes one table will order a lot and then the person shucking oysters won’t be able to move onto the next order for a long time. However, you can order many times! They have $1 oysters as well as $2 premium oysters. I personally can’t tell the difference so it doesn’t matter to me! Read more
I read some posts raving about the brunch at the new Chewies in Coal Harbour so I decide to visit the Kits location since it was the same brunch menu.
I decided on the Braised Short Rib Hash with potato home fries, black eyed peas and two poached eggs. Sorry I should’ve taken a picture of the other side so you can see the short ribs. It turns out only one of my eggs was poached. The other one turned out to be more soft boiled instead. The short ribs were really tender and juicy. The potatoes were crispy on the outside and seasoned with Cajun spices. The black eyed peas were in a tomato and onion based sauce and everything tasted good mixed up! Our server also offered us hot sauce which I put on my eggs. This was a really good dish! It was also really filling from all the potatoes.
This was the Southern Crab Cake Benny with avocado, Cajun Hollandaise Sauce and potato home fries. I tried a few bites of this and it was really good too! I think I liked it better than my dish. Or maybe I just like crab cakes and bennies. I thought the avocado was an interesting addition.
Definitely a solid brunch here! I also liked the atmosphere there, it just seemed really vibrant. I really want to come back for dinner now! Also I want to try their chicken and waffles and southern fried chicken! Yes I love me some fried chicken! Chewies lived up to the hype for sure!
