The Beach Bucket List

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Summer is imminent. What was brown is now green. What was cold is now, at very least, luke warm. Clothes are disappearing and smiles are returning. Winter is but a distant, frigid memory. Summer disappeared in early August last year. Sunshine and heat turned to miserable, cold fall far too soon for everyone. But I have confidence history will not repeat itself

Culinary Capital


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I hadn’t really been to Quebec before this April. I was there once, briefly, when I was a kid. My dad took a wrong turn in Montreal on a family trip home from Ottawa and we ended up on the north side of the St. Lawrence rather than the south. I suppose we were charmed by the city because we decided to stay the night. We ate at a place called Le Baron Rouge. I

What Recession?

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

On my regular Saturday morning trip to the grocery store a few weeks back I ran into Gordon Bailey. Gordon is one of the Island’s most popular chefs, and his restaurant, Lot 30 in Charlottetown, has developed quite a name for itself in less than a year of operation. Gordon had two large bags of tomatoes in his cart and he was elbow deep in the yellow peppers

Lebanese Levee

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

This year marked my second trip to a Charlottetown New Years event unsurpassed for its class, its attendance and its food. The event sees the highest number of impeccably dressed people in one room, at one time, of any annual event in the province. Hundreds and hundreds of people, from all walks of life, make the trip every year. And the food, the marvelous and

Give Me the Real Thing

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Is The Noodle House Prince Edward Island’s most authentic Chinese restaurant?

Islanders love Chinese food. Take a walk down Queen Street at 2:30 on a Saturday morning and you’ll know what I mean. As soon as the Charlottetown bars close, or the Summerside bars for that matter, hundreds of late-night food seeking, salt-craving drunkards hit the streets, and at

Dining In

I'm Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

In these times of economic uncertainty, it's sometimes difficult to justify spending your hard earned money on dramatically marked up food. Let's face it, restaurant food is, on average, triple the cost of the same food bought at the grocery store and cooked at home. And with all the bleak news of recession, and depression, and the coming rapture, people are
