Although BC boasts succulent Dungeness crab, superb sablefish and sweet-meated scallops, oysters are among the freshest and most readily available year-round seafood. And “buck a shuck” is a popular after-work pastime. One of the more popular spots, Joe Fortes has no shortage of the likes of Kusshi, Ship’s Point, Chef Creek, Sinku and Effingham, as does Rodney’s Oyster House and Chinatown’s Oyster Express, to mention just a few.—Tim Pawsey
