$1 Oysters in Montreal – 2014 edition

I love oysters and I cannot lie! So what’s better than slurping on $1 oysters that won’t break my wallet (or my nails when shucking)?

Here’s a list of the cheap oysters spots I know about so far. Let me know if you’ve discovered new great spots, or have found out one of the places no longer offers $1 oysters.

Disclaimer: Lots of the oyster specials are seasonal. So it’s better to call the restaurant and confirm that they still have the special on the day of your visit!

La Bêtise

We went all Asian on the night at La Bêtise. We chose to go on $1 oyster Monday, and bought the tasting menu coupon on one of the deal sites. In the end we paid around $50 per person for drinks, dozen of oysters and a crazy amount of food. We were almost too full to move at the end of the night.

For the oysters, we got Raspberry Point for the night. It was really delicious and if we didn’t have the tasting menu coming, we might have just sat there and go through dozens of oysters.

The cocktails were not strong, but very tasty. And the nice presentation just lifted our spirits.

The food at La Bêtise is Asian fusion. My favorites out of the tasting menu are definitely the crab bites and salmon tartare.

The crab bites combined a whole bunch of ingredients in one bite and is just a burst of flavor in the mouth. For the salmon tartare, it has avocado and sauce in the bottom to enhance the experience.

I was really looking forward to the General Tao poutine. But when we got to that point, everyone was simply too full to enjoy the taste.
