Oyster chowder – Rapp Session

Assorted oysters - Rapp Session
Bloody Mary style, potato, fennel. $9
Rapp Session, Richmond VA

This was really good! I liked the spiciness of the bloody mary flavor, and it was actually a pretty sizable portion for the price. There was quite a few oysters in there too!


Fanny Bay oysters – Boxing Room

Fanny Bay oysters - Boxing Room
Cocktail sauce, mignonette, lemon. Half dozen $20
Boxing Room, San Francisco CA

Boxing Room has since closed since I last visit, but I’m finally getting around to posting these pics. I’m kinda sad that it closed because I liked the food there, and there aren’t many good cajun/creole restaurants in The City. Anyway, I’ve already tried its replacement, Barcino, but that’s for another time.

These Fanny Bay oysters were very tasty – bright, clean, fresh, briny, and cleanly shucked. I could’ve easily eaten a dozen on my own, but didn’t want to break the bank.

Oysters – E&O Kitchen and Bar

Oysters - E&O Kitchen and Bar
Kim chee cocktail sauce. Happy hour $1 each
E&O Kitchen and Bar, San Francisco CA

I was a bit fearful of the kimchi cocktail sauce. Not because I don’t like the kimchi flavor, but because I usually don’t put cocktail sauce on my oysters and prefer a nice mignonette instead. Anyway, I opted against the cocktail sauce and just used the lemon for some flavor. You can’t beat a freshly shucked dollar oysters for happy hour!

Maple Old Fashioned cocktail - E&O Kitchen and Bar
Maple Old Fashioned: E&O single barrel whiskey, sugar, maple bitters. Happy hour $6
I was afraid that this was going to be too sweet, but thankfully it wasn’t. You could taste the maple bitters, but it wasn’t overpowering.
