Uli’s Restaurant: Oysters, Mussels and Clams
It’s been years since I’ve been to White Rock and the only thing that I could remember was the big hills leading down to the beach and the fact that the actual “rock” which the city gets their name from is painted white.
After a jaunt along the boardwalk, we walked up and down Marine Drive looking for a place to eat until we arrived at Uli’s. We wound up ordering the Oysters Rockefeller ($4.50 each) which is prepared with creamed spinach, grana padano cheese, and hollandaise sauce. While extremely cheesy, it’s not a strong/hard cheese so it goes well with the delicate oyster.
In keeping with our shellfish theme, we ordered the Steamed Mussels and Clams ($23) served with onions in a garlic and white wine broth. The mussels and clams were quite plump. My only complaint with this dish is that the broth was quite weak and lacked flavour.
Prices here are a little bit on the expensive side, but probably within line with the other restaurants that cater to tourists in the area. Oysters Rockefeller are a must try when you visit here.
