Vacay.ca Loves Eating Out in Victoria
There are many reasons Mom will love Victoria. While touring the city and its new businesses, Vacay.ca contributor Kathleen Kenna happened upon The Oyster, a restaurant with a vibrant feel and casual atmosphere that residents adore.
Kenna writes: “The Oyster shows what locals love most about Victoria in this century: It’s a foodie city celebrating its watery heritage. Chef Umut Cetin serves mostly local oysters, from both sides of Vancouver Island (Barkley Sound on the west; Fanny Bay on the east), and the mainland (Powell River and the Sunshine Coast.) He serves them raw, roasted, grilled, pan-fried and even baked. Oysters Pescatore features Fanny Bay oysters, shell-roasted, with bacon and leek cream, for $9. The Oyster is especially busy from 5 to 7 pm, when featured oysters are ‘a buck a shuck.’”
