Every now and then I go through an "oyster phase" where all I think about day in and day out are raw oysters. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, having oysters to start a meal is something I may never get sick of, well...I've never done it but if only I could! And so being in the middle of one of my phases, I decided to visit Rodney's Oyster House.
A couple friends and I were craving an after dinner snack, as we found ourselves nearby the often-raved about "Cheesecake Etc". Located at the South Granville section of town, it’s referred to by many as a cheesecake paradise that could use a bit better lighting (more on that later). Although I don’t come here as often as I would like, I always anticipate indulging in not just the scrumptious selections that the dinery has to offer, but also the soulful jazz music that accompanies the food.
Situated at the heart of downtown, in between Robson and Bute st., Ebisu on Robson offers a trendy fusion-Japanese joint for those looking for a place to eat-out and hang without having to wear a dress shirt to do so (although no one’s going to condemn you for doing it). Possessing a more night-life oriented vibe than the other locations in Vancouver, the food itself for the most part is just as vibrant and impressive.
