Rodney's Oyster House in Yaletown, Vancouver

Half Dozen Local Oysters

I've been eating oysters almost every other day this week, and I'm still not tired of them! This rowdy shop (1228 Hamilton Street, 604-609-0080) gave me three varieties of local oysters ranging from mild to sweet to creamy, not to mention a huge array of hot sauces to go with it, including some based on habanero and Scotch bonnets.

Perhaps more impressive was something called a slapjack chowder, which was made from oysters and was thicker than the one from Taylor down in Seattle. But I didn't care much for the Haida Gwaii candy, which were sticks of a local jerky-like salmon that were laced with black pepper but were also mildly sweet and boringly dry too. Fortunately, the prices here were reasonable.
