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
My friend was moving to Taiwan for her new teaching job so we were going to eat with her before she left. We decided on Lips Resto since it just opened and it had nice pictures. The restaurant was empty except for one table when we arrived at 7pm. Turns out we didn’t even need a reservation. It’s never a good sign to have an empty restaurant! Even a new one. We appreciated the nice dining space though.
So my friends wanted Oysters so we ordered 6 served with horseradish, fennel and dill slaw. I forgot what the two sauces on the side were. I literally forgot right after the waiter said it. Oops. We thought the oysters were really small. Read more
Manna Sushi opened on W2nd and Ontario a few months ago but I never got around to blogging about it. It is pretty much the only sushi place around besides Aqua Sushi and Juice Bar which focuses on healthy food and makes their sushi with brown rice. The inside of the restaurant was pretty spacious.
This was a half order of the Salmon Sashimi (6pcs). It was fresh and they cut it in an interesting way that I can’t describe here but it’s like the ends were a bit thinner? Or they were trying to cheap out on us…
So I’ve been to Chewie’s for dinner a few times now so I thought I’d do a more comprehensive post! They have a new location near Coal Harbour that just opened this year.
Also, I tried my first raw oyster last month!!! =O *gasp* yes what kind of a food blogger am I anyway? I just wasn’t interested before and it didn’t look that appealing to me but it turns out they’re not bad! Yeah I don’t know why it took me so long to try them haha Chewie’s has a buck a shuck oysters from 3-6pm everyday!
I can’t really say much about the oysters since I’m still new to them…
While searching up new lunch places to visit, I came across the Fish Counter located on Main and 23rd. When we arrived around 1pm, the place was bustling with people getting take out or eating in the limited store space. Seating is extremely limited so be prepared to get take out. While waiting for my food I also noticed they sell their own home made sauces. In addition to prepared food such as salads and crab cakes, they also sell…well you guessed it! Fish.
They also have sturgeon! Not sure what that would taste like though. I debated between getting a sandwich or fish and chips since they both sounded good. The portions for the fish and chips looked really big too and I saw the fries were made from real potatoes.
