Meta Knight and I love’em raw oysters so we ordered a dozen at one buck a piece! Unfortunately you can’t choose the type (we at first wanted Kumamoto and Kusshi) so it’ll just be from the local beaches.
Here’s their bar menu. Everything on this menu is half off.
Dozen local beach oysters ($1/ea) were delicious and very well shucked. Each one of them were fresh tasting with very little taste of brine.
The Jumbo Tiger Prawn Cocktail ($7.45) was indeed HUGE and super worth the seven bucks you’re paying instead of fourteen. Meta Knight did mention that The Keg serves 5 jumbo prawns in one order versus Joe Fortes where its just 3. 😛
One of the items I was dying to try were the Mini Shrimp and Lobster Rolls (~$7.00). Ever since I had my first lobster roll in Vegas (post here), I’ve been OBSESSED with lobster rolls. And these did not disappoint. They were served on a traditional New England style mini hot dog bun with a bit of toast effect going on both sides.
Last but not least is the Oyster Rockefeller ($8.45) and oh my god was I in heaven. It came with five extremely plump, juicy, fresh oysters served with a dollop of creamed spinach type mixture and topped with a bechamel sauce. I can easily polish a whole dish because it’s THAT good.
All in all, fresh oysters, oyster rockefeller, and mini lobster rolls are the items to get at Joe Fortes during happy hour. If you are anything like me (aka. COMPLETE seafood fanatic), you will love their bar menu. Next happy hour eat list: parmesan truffle fries, calamari, and fried oysters.
