It has been too long since I went to these restaurants to write a proper review….and well I may not see them necessarily inspiring enough to really write a full blog about…but don’t let that stop you from going! Both dinners were organized within the Montreal Foodie Blogger secret group.
I do however have some awesome pics from each outing and I wanted to share the photos with you.
First up is the Oyster Shack…which I did like. Never in my life did I ever think I would find a restaurant in the heart of down town that would make me feel, once inside, like I was truly in a sea food shack of the coast of the ocean. And the 5$ martinis till 8pm…HELLO? LOVE it (not every night)
1242 Rue Bishop
Montreal, QC H3G 2E3
5$ Martinis, need I say more!
1/2 dozen oyster Rockafeller
Surf and Turf
Mussels (no clue about the sauce, Valérie?)
Second place is Takara. I am sorry to say I found it quite average. I did not order anything out of the ordinary either for my main meal. The appetizer was a huge letdown. I ordered crab rolled in seaweed” At such an establishment I expect crab…it was garbage. Not impressed. Not earth shattering but I did like the green tea cheesecake.
1455 rue Peel
Montréal, QC H3A 1T5
Some sort of sashimi, Valérie? Pretty pic though!
My fake crab appetizer
Some sort of meal soup, Valérie?
Green Tea Cheesecake
WHAT, you are comming…oh so cool, we are so gonna go eat hehe
I would guess that the sashimi is kingfish..?
I remember reading about the Oyster Shack while I was in Montreal, and wanted to go there but never got around to it (I think it was that place, anyway), so perhaps I’ll have to sneak in a meal there when I’m there IN A FEW WEEKS!!! WOO 🙂 Which reminds me… I need to send you an email..
A refreshing martini for 5$…a de-shelled lobster…and a green tea cheesecake…I’m in for next time. Sounds like a wonderful time.
Thanks for sharing your assessment of both restos.
Ciao and flavourful wishes, Claudia
Oh ben ca m’a l’air delicieux tout ca, mais bon c’est vrai que parfois on peut-etre décu, ca m’arrive assez souvent d’ailleurs, en tout cas le Agedashi Tofu est superbe, tes photos m’ont mise en appétit! Hmmm…je dois mettre mon code sur html…quel code?
It’s Agedashi Tofu. 🙂
Too bad you found it just average! It always makes me regret having bothered when that happens, maybe that’s why I cook at home most of the time!
