Let the Good Times Broil

No matter what the occasion, we’re determined to be a memorable part of it, second only to the bride’s dress or niece Jenny’s cover of ‘Rocket Man.’ Our shuckers alone are worth the price of admission, ever-ready to regal with tales of adventure and pearls of wisdom. Our setup will be seamless and our presence the life of the party.

Pop Up Events

The idea for the Wandering Mollusk Pop-Up event was inspired by the explosive growth of the Island’s craft brewing Industry. Suddenly, there were all these guys just like us, only with beer, wine and spirits instead of oysters and buckets. It made all kinds of sense to get together and so we started showing up at brewhouses, wineries and distilleries. Before long, we were having shucking good times at festivals, grand openings, markets and anyplace with fun-loving folk and a liquor license.

Catered Events

Our roots are in catering events. It remains our favourite thing to do, We started out creating platters of fresh west coast oysters provided by our kindred spirit providers and transporting them with great care to all kinds of special events. Weddings. Retirement parties. Startup exit celebrations. And one occasion, a wake. The dear departed will be remembered not only for the life he lived, but for the party he inspired. And it’s so much more than the finest variety of oysters on the planet. It’s the crew that shucks them before your eyes Boy, do they have stories to tell!

Best oysters you will EVER have. Jess shucks them right there while you enjoy a beer on the whistle buoy patio. And if you want something truly special check out the Dungeness crab boil bucket to take home with you. We split this with 3 friend and it was phenomenal. I had no idea shellfish could be this good (or easy for that matter) at home. Can’t say enough good things.

Absolutely phenomenal quality Oysters! Passionate staff that make their own sauces and do a wonderful job on presentation. Top notch, bless up!

My partner & I ordered (and very much enjoyed) the new Seafood Boil Bucket. The instructions were perfect. We appreciated the advice about saving some of the pieces (corn, potatoes, sausage) for a hash the next day. It is such a cool idea and executed so well. Also, delicious. 🙂

Best oysters in the city. It’s true. Perfectly shucked right before your very eyes, locally sourced, delicious house made mignonettes.This guy is kicking goals all things seafood.
I have done their seafood boil bucket twice, pop-up oysters/clam dip (we want more dip!!) multiple times and most recently a co-hosted event at Bear & Joey. Everything is always 10/10.

When I am anywhere downtown Victoria and looking for some quality food, I will go out of my way to make sure to find a Wandering Mollusk pop up. I have been blown away time and time again at the level of quality and freshness I receive every time I eat there. Jess, the owner of Wandering Mollusk, took the time to help educate me in the true way to eat fresh, locally picked oysters and how to properly pair them with homemade sauces and garnishes to fit my taste preference. I find this is a true staple of downtown Victoria’s local food scene and encourage everyone to go experience it!

The seafood boil bucket is amazing! We made it with water but I will definitely try beer next time! A must try – they truly loaded it with the freshest seafood & added the yummiest sauces. The chimi sauce is killer! Also, a huge thank you to Jess for the awesome customer service 🙂

It is challenging to plan for birthdays during COVID lock down, but I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled upon the Wandering Mollusk. I ordered the dungeon was crab bucket and it was a big hit! Really elevated the experience of a birthday dinner during lockdown. I am an amateur around the kitchen but this is a no brainer! Pop it on the stove and 20mins later … dinner is ready to serve.
