Fishbar

It's not new, but in my greedy quest for an oyster binge with oldest daughter, it came up as one of the few places that have Malpeque's on the regular menu for the slim price of $1.35 per. I am generally apologetic and tippy when I go for these indulgences, and have had some interesting experiences. For example, I have found that Biff's actively seek out the smallest possible oysters on their buckashuck menus, while La Societa works to upsell wine as hard as they can.

Fishbar did an enthusiastic job of presenting the oysters well with good condiments, enthusiastic and friendly service, and the second dozen arrived with an extra. We ordered the tuna tartare as well, which was a very decent sized portion served atop a mound of guac. Very nicely flavoured. On top of this, they were kind enough to tempt us with shooters of their red pepper gazpacho (very nice) and a couple of a different variety of oyster they had on hand with the bill. For me, the interaction is almost as important as the food and really adds to the experience. Nicely done folks.
