Apparently, Vancouver takes this Oyster thing very seriously – no shyness to the offering of buck-a-shucks in Vancouver…!
The low-tide special offers one type of oyster for $1.50 a shuck, daily from 3 to 6 p.m. Not the best deal in town, but wide selection and fun ambience. Hunky servers make it a good catch for girls’ night out. 1228 Hamilton St., 604-609-0080
A small, charming pearl tucked into the old Stock Exchange Building. Buck-a-shuck daily from 4 to 7 p.m.; or an 18-piece mix for $36 any time of day. Romantic vibe for date nights. 475 Howe St., 604-899-0323
Buck-a-shuck on Monday nights – all night long – with more than one local variety to choose from. The champagne mignonette at this small Gastown boite is the fizziest around. 221 Carrall St., 604-569-2215
Slide up to the bar from 3 to 5 p.m. for buck-a-shuck. Smile nicely at the bartender and he might slip in some Kusshis or other premium varieties. Good selection of East Coast oysters. 1045 Alberni St., 604-685-5010
And, I make my final selection (good times last night!) as Joe Fortes, they have $1.00 oysters too, AND $5.00 glasses of wine plus 50% off their appy menu in the bar.
Vancouver, we have lots of options.
