Win a $90 Gift Card to Pure Spirits Oyster House with Zomato - CLOSED

To celebrate the start of this year's oyster season I'm giving away FOUR $90 GIFT CARDS to Pure Spirits Oyster House & Grill courtesy of Zomatomy favourite app in finding the yummiest foods in the city! Used by millions of people every day in over 10,000 cities across 22 countries, Zomato's mission is to ensure that nobody has a bad meal. Personally, I love using Zomato because the app has all the information you'd ever need to make an informed choice about a restaurant. With curated collections, nearby searches and full menus available for every restaurant, Zomato makes your eating choices that much simpler!

When it comes to oysters, you either love 'em or hate 'em. For me, I absolutely LOVE them. Whether they are raw, baked or fried, the bivalves are so satisfying (especially the freshly shucked ones with their sweet, briny liquor!) Oysters are in season right now as they are best consumed in the colder months from September to April (because they reproduce in the summer) but are generally available all year round as well. Below are some of my favourite ways to eat oysters (clockwise from top left): Raw, fried and stuffed into a po'boy, charbroiled and baked. Simply mouth-watering.

If you love oysters as much as I do then you must enter my contest! Pure Spirits Oyster House & Grill (Twitter: @spiritspure, Facebook: Pure Spirits Oyster House) in the Distillery District is continually recognized as one of the best places for seafood in Toronto, Pure Spirits serves up some amazing food, particularly the fresh oysters flown in daily from around the continent and abroad. Think beautifully balanced Malpeques, melon-accented Kumamotos and meaty Fanny Bays. Yum! And if you're not a fan of oysters there are numerous other seafood options at the restaurant, including fresh fish, mussels and lobsters, as well as pastas and steaks.
