Where to buy Oysters by the box in Toronto??

beachdemon Sep 20, 2007 08:29 AM

In Montreal, I can pick a few places to find good oysters in seafood shops - in Toronto, however, I am at a loss despite having lived here for most of my life.

Any help finding the devine slimy little buggers would be appreciated.

    Thank you all very much!
    We will be enjoying oysters and bubbles this weekend... well my guests will, I shall be avoiding injury to my hands while shucking all day Sunday. FYI, one of my favourite oyster related delights:
    1.5 oz Vodka, splash of lime, one reasonably sized oyster served in a martini glass
    Bottoms UP!

      Also Oyster Boy on Queen West and Snapper's in Bloor West Village.

        Diana's Seafood. And they give you samples. Yum.

            Definitely the best place for oysters I've found. Great variety and great price on oysters by the box.

              is it cheaper than just buying them by the dozen? how many are in a box?

            St Lawrence Market fish retailers will sell you boxes, or you can order them from Rodney's, there are a few fish places north of downtown that are regarded very well who would, I don't recall the names but others here will know...anyone?
