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.

Assorted oysters – Rapp Session

Rappahannock, Rochambeau, and Olde Salt oysters served with horseradish and mignonette. Happy hour, half off
Rapp Session, Richmond VA

These weren’t my favorite. They weren’t bright and briny like the West Coast oysters that I’m used too. These were on the milky side – not my thang.

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.
