What did I eat?
Fanny Bay Oyster Stout
- The oyster stout is made by BRB Brewing and is infused with oysters
- There wasn’t an overt oyster flavour there was just a very subtle hint of brininess
- During happy hour this beer is on special for $5.
Mussels and Fries
- The mussels and fries here were a well executed take on the classic dish
- The mussels came in a wine and garlic sauce and had a briny salty flavour to them
- I loved the fries here because they were super crispy and seasoned well
- I normally stick to raw oysters because I hate the rubbery texture oysters get when they are overcooked, but I am happy to say that these were cooked perfectly and still moist on the inside.
- The batter was light and super crispy, which gave them a good crunch on the outside
- The batter on the crab cakes was the same as the fried oysters so these were also nice and crispy
- The cakes were meaty and there was lots of flakey crab meat inside
Buck-a-Shuck Fanny Bay Oysters
- From 3-6pm all Fanny Bay Oysters are $1 each.
- These oysters are plump and on the larger side
- They have a super fresh, smooth, and slightly briny flavour to them
- Make sure you try all of the sauces that come with the oysters. The apple cider mignonette was my favourite. It was slightly sweet and tangy and took the oyster to another level.
Happy hour at Fanny Bay Oyster Bar is definitely worth checking out because the specials are a great deal and the food was all very good.
