Edmonton’s oyster bars worth trying

Oysters come baked, deep fried, raw or as shooters. And, whether you choose Cajun and Creole, French or Japanese, oysters are part of a variety of cuisines and are all worth trying. So think of Edmonton as your oyster and savour all the different varieties it offers.

Cajun House The

1
102-7 St Anne St, St. Albert, AB T8N 2X4

The best Cajun and Creole dining with some amazing food. Try the oyster po-boy with alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes and, of course, deep fried, breaded oysters. We recommend getting the side of gumbo - you won’t regret it.

The Louisiana Purchase Restaurant

2
10320 111 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 1L2

The menu is everything you’d expect from a good ol’ southern restaurant. It even includes alligator, Louisiana jambalaya and, of course, fresh shuck-ulant oysters.

Memphis Blues Barbeque House

3
5317 23 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6L 7G4

They encourage eating with your hands, so you know this is an awesome place! Try the deep-fried oysters breaded with cornmeal and seasoned with dry rub. The food is so good, they have been known to run out, so get there early.

Privada Wine & Tapas Bar

4
100-21 Perron St, St. Albert, AB T8N 1E6

This restaurant, located in St. Albert, is worth a little trek for their oysters. Available in half or a full dozen, you’ll probably want to get the full order – they’re that good.

Ginseng Restaurant

5
7-9261 34 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 5T5

This is a Korean cook-your-own-meat-buffet-style restaurant where you pay one price and have unlimited food and non-alcoholic drinks. Pile up your plate and cook it yourself on the BBQ at your table. There’s an assortment of meats, veggies, oysters and other seafood.

Pearl River Restaurant

6
4728 99 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 5H5

This is an authentic Chinese restaurant with live lobster, crab and oysters. The latter are slightly coated with corn starch and fried with spicy garlic salt and pepper with your choice of black bean sauce or garlic and ginger sauce. You can’t go wrong either way.

Lux Steakhouse & Bar

7
10150 101 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 4G8

Located in Edmonton’s financial district downtown, this steakhouse serves up some tasty oysters as part of their raw bar. Every day the selection changes, but it’s worth the surprise.

Mikado

8
10350 109 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 4X9

Mikado was Alberta’s first Japanese restaurant, serving Edmonton since the early ‘70s. The Baked Oysters will make you drool. It’s an oven-baked oyster dish with spicy miso sauce. You might want to make a meal of it.

Dadeo

9
10548A 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2A4

They serve up some authentic southern Cajun cookin’. You gotta try the Bloody Mary Oysters. It’s exactly what you’d expect: oyster shots with vodka, tomato, tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. For the less adventurous eater, try the Oysters Rockefeller, baked with spinach, onion and Sambuca.

Izakaya Tomo

10
3739 99 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 6J7

A Japanese restaurant serving up an interesting twist on the usual oyster dish. Try the oyster ponzu - basically breaded and fried oysters with a Japanese ponzu sauce.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
