Domestic Arts

Domestic Arts

In Her Own Write

Asian Infusion

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

So my friend is on the phone and she’s saying “Sushi? Are you kidding? This is Charlottetown!”. And all I can think is—what, you’ve been living under a rock? Because, if there’s one thing Charlottetown suddenly and wonderfully has tons of, it’s places to get it’s sushi.

At last count, there were four sushi places, with another set to open soon. And there are a couple
