296 Keefer Street, Vancouver
Advice: Happy Hour Tues – Thurs from 4-6pm Buck a shuck oysters.
Located on the Eastern edge of Chinatown, this very cool nautical themed room has rounded windows and is walled of pine wood and dark wood chairs for seating. The oyster bar is the star spot in the room, where you will find them shucking and plating, this is the place for Oysters on this side of town, though it is not only about the Oysters. I visited for lunch and had their Jamaican Vegi Curry ($9) a delicious curry filled with vegetables that was served with a bowl of rice. You will find a selection of house-made curries, steamed mussels, shrimp cocktail, salads, desserts, smoothies, juices, coffees and teas, and of course you will find a large selection of oysters.
If you are on a hunt for oysters, make sure you meet Shawn Chesney, one of the owners who is a master shucker and knows his craft!
