What I ate:
Oyster Po’ Boy – Sawmill Bay Oysters, arugula, spicy cabbage, chive and dill sauce with fries
  • 8/10
  • The bread accompanied the oysters well
  • The oysters weren’t too thickly breaded and luckily weren’t overcooked, could still taste the oysters flavours
  • The spicy cabbage wasn’t that spicy, kind of reminded me of kimchi but without the spice
  • Added a nice textural and sour component
  • The chive and dill sauce went very well with the sandwich
  • The fries were definitely over cooked
  • Very big crunch very little fluffy potato goodness on the inside
Dairy-free clam chowder
  • 7/10
  • The clam chowder was on the saltier side, kind of like the sea was in there
  • A good amount of clams
  • I prefer dairy full clam chowders with creaminess
Things to Improve on: Hold back on the salt for the clam chowder, frying the fries
Summary: Oyster Po’ Boy was a good size and had some great flavours. Nice place for a chilled out lunch or snack but not a lot of seating.
