by Cassandra Bernard

The Christmas season is a busy time of the year, and the owners of Kent Street Market in Downtown Charlottetown want to take away some of the pressures of holiday cooking and hosting.

Having opened less than five months ago, Mila MacLean Homburg and Phil Homburg are noticing more and more customers in the store and leaving happy with gourmet and

Find of the month: Poutine at Papa Joe’s

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

For my money, good old reliable Papa Joe’s has one of the most interesting menus in town. Sure, you can get something expected and comforting. But you can also be surprised and delighted by my new favourite thing: bar clams and chips.

This is PEI’s answer to poutine. Do not mistake this for fried clams; it’s entirely different. The clams are like they would be for chowder

Route 145 Bar and Grill in Bloomfield

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

Recognizing a need in West Prince for a bar, family restaurant and some “hanging out” space, Dwayne and Crystal Costain took over an existing bar and have put their own distinct stamp on it. Route 145 Bar and Grill opened March 3, 2016. The determined couple knew folks needed a spot to sit down, have a good meal, have a drink, watch some

Restaurants push the evolution of a neighbourhood 

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

Something seems to be percolating in the east end of downtown Charlottetown. Formerly seen as a mecca for cruise shippers and other tourists, the place is starting to become an interesting place for residents as well.

To wit: the venerable Water Prince Corner Shop is staying open until December 15 this year—the theory

A good ribbing

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

One thing though. Sometimes they run out of ribs later in the evening so if anyone wants ribs it could be a gamble at that time.”

That was the text I received from my buddy Justin on a Wednesday afternoon early in November. Six of us were in Halifax for what was likely the biggest pool tournament in the history of Eastern Canada. There were 240 players and

Stone soup

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Here then a little ode to a meal I have not eaten but whose very idea fills me with delight. A church in Murray Harbour is offering a free supper to their neighbours once a month—not because people need the food but because they need each other. It is perfect. All the words: community, communion, communing. All are defined by the simple cheer of a church hall and a

Finding seasonal inspiration at the Kent Street Market

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

For me, there is nothing more Christmassy than food. You can take your fir trees, your candles in the window, your crowded shopping malls. Just give me something good to eat—a turkey dinner or a nibble of something savoury and I will feel as if the season is upon me. Eating good food and giving good food seem the very

The Summer Kitchen

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Over the past few years Charlottetown has been absolutely blessed with the type and variety of Asian foods that are available. Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, sushi…now you can add food from the Philippines to that mix.

The original owners of the Noodle House on Summer Street have taken over the kitchen again and, along with their signature fried noodles, they also
