Taste of India donates Sunday dinners to Anderson House

Sam Semwal and Paul Sohi, chefs and partners in Taste of IndiaThe owners of Taste of India restaurant in downtown Charlottetown, Paul Sohi and Sam Semwal, will celebrate their first year of operation in May of 2018.

Both Paul and Sam say that they have been very pleased by the immediately positive response that the restaurant has enjoyed from local customers.

And they have found a way to show their thanks to their new community by donating free cooked meals to Anderson House, a shelter in Charlottetown.

Paul would always pass a number of homeless people on his way to work. He decided to find a way to do something for people in need in Charlottetown. “To give back,” he says. He approached Anderson House Executive Director Danya O’Malley with the proposal to serve a cooked meal, India-style, one Sunday a month at the shelter. Danya enthusiastically accepted. She says that they do receive donations of food, usually non-perishable items, but the offer of a cooked meal is something special. 

Paul and Sam moved to PEI in February in 2017. Prior to that they had both been working in the restaurant business in Vancouver, BC, but were looking to own their own place.

On a trip to the Island, Paul found a vacant premises on Kent Street (the former St. James Gate) that he decided would be a perfect location. 

When told about it, Sam’s response was “where is Prince Edward Island?” Now he knows that PEI is a place where he and Paul can make a difference.
