It was a spontaneous lunch decision to go to the Fish Shack with my friend and it was also my first time. The restaurant was spacious with a bar, dining area and a massive chalk wall with all the fish information you need to know written on it. I think The Fish Shack is also another good place to watch a sports game or a beer night with your mates. Since lunch time was over and I leave dinner options for heavier choices, I didn’t get to try the tacos or fish and chips but I did go straight for the Oyster Po’ Boy (CAD13.95).
Toasted buttery baguette with lettuce, tomatoes and FIVE DEEP FRIED OYSTERS with a gracious amount of fries. Thank goodness this sandwich didn’t fall apart and become a huge mess once I picked it up. The oysters were packed with juicy and succulent meat and the buttery baguette was the perfect compliment.

I made another trip to The Fish Shack after my dinner with Minami. You might call it seafood overdose but I can’t get enough of it. Joey and I shared a crockpot stacked with 2lbs of mussels simmered in white wine, onions and herbs. I think I had around 25 of these meaty oceanic gems sealed with juice accented in a rich and luscious sauce.
