Big Daddy's Bourbon Street Bistro & Oyster Bar

Big Daddys TorontoBig Daddy's Bourbon Street Bistro & Oyster Bar is exactly as it sounds - a casual restaurant serving seafood and other Louisiana favourites like cajun fried alligator, seafood gumbo and a shellfish boil. Diners beware: while the menu might sound delicious this place is the definition of a tourist trap.

i was all excited for my first taste at real fondue, and boy, was i disapointed!

i arrived past 10 which is voodoo hours so i happily got 2 bucks off most menu items.

however, i went for fondue and what i got was NOT fondue. it was a variety of seafood mixed in pasta sauce and covered with melted cheese, with some bread on the side for dipping.
it was very tasty, but it was NOT fondue.
fondue is stuff dipped into a pot of hot melted cheese.
this stuff was seafood chip dip. again, very tasty, but if you're looking for a real fondue experience, this is not the place for it.

but they serve raw oysters and cajun fried gator, so if you're wanting tasty food, this is the place to go. if you're wanting the play with a pot of cheese, this will disappoint severely.
