Best oysters in Tokyo?

  • 9

I had some delicious oysters on the half shell at Beacon a few weeks ago, and am now craving more! More, more! Where to go?

  1. Where in the city are you interested in dining? Oysters are ubiquitous offerings at seafood restaurants. Or you can try places like Jackpot Oyster Bar in Shimokita, Grand Central Oyster Bar in Shinagawa or Marunouchi, or one of these places--> http://www.oysterbar.co.jp/tenpo.html... .

        Hello Liza,
        Gee, if the oysters were great at Beacon, why don't you go back there?
        The chef there is first-rate and really knows his ingredients well.

    2. I really like the Fish House Oyster Bar in Ebisu. It's a casual place with an excellent selection of oysters. Here are some photos from a recent visit.

      1. I had oysters at the Akasaka branch, and found them poor. I'm not sure whether the problem is I don't like japanese oysters (which seemed metallic, unsubtle, and large) compared to all the various western oysters, but I found it a poor substitute.

        1. Is it possible to get Bellon oysters in Tokyo?

            I have seen them at a few oyster specialty places. One is near Gotanda station, but I cannot remember the name.

              I'm guessing that would be the rather generically named Tokyo Oyster Bar.

                Yeah, that is probably why I had trouble remembering it.
