Ferris' Oyster Bar and Grill - Pulled Pork Poutine
While in Victoria last week, I was tasked to find some lunch ideas within the downtown area. The place I chose on this particular night was Ferris' Oyster Bar. I was hoping that it would be better than my choice from yesterday, Pig BBQ Joint. We were there for two things, the Oyster Po'Boy was one of them. We opted for the Caesar Salad instead of r fries, you'll find out why later. Three deep fried oysters sitting on top of a grill bun, topped with some mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion and a pickle, served open face. This was more filling that you would expect. The oysters were super juicy still, something about battering something and deep frying it, it just serves to keep the interior delicately cooked. I liked that they grilled the bun, otherwise, this could have been a soggy mess. We substituted the fries for the Caesar salad because we had our eyes on a bigger prize, the Pulled Pork Poutine. After the failure to order this at Pig yesterday, we were determined not to make the same mistake twice! Therefore, we ordered this and was amazed. It was as pig as the po'boy! Lots of fries, although a little soggy from the gravy, but loaded with chunks of pulled pork and squeaky cheese curds, this turned me from a poutine non-believer to a poutine-lover. The curds melted under the heat of the gravy and blended into the pulled pork, creating a ooey gooey meaty cheesy bite. I will have have to start a search in Vancouver for more of this poutine goodness!
