Each summer I set a food challenge for myself. Last summer, I went on the hunt for the best fish and chips on Prince Edward Island; there was no shortage of good ones…really good ones, in fact - but I did pick my favorite. I checked out some restaurants that I liked anyway but I also asked friends, colleagues, and acquaintances to recommend their favorites to me. I took my Mom, always a fish and chips fan, on my taste-testing mission as I covered the Island from tip-to-tip in search of the hands-down, no-question-about-it, best version of the perennial seafood favorite. By the end of the season, neither of us seriously wanted to see fish and chips again for a good long while!
This summer, my challenge is to find the best seafood chowder on PEI and it starts now as all the multitude of seasonal restaurants open on the Island for the summer tourist season. At the end of the summer, I will post a blog about my personal favorite from amongst those I sampled. So, if you have a favorite eating spot that you think serves the absolute best seafood chowder on the Island, let me know so I can try it out. I will be criss-crossing this great Island of ours over the next several months so feel free to suggest establishments from North to South, East to West, and all points in between! Let’s hope these establishments serve “cups” of chowder and not large bowls as my waistline may suffer the consequences! To recommend a favorite to me, either send me a direct email using the contact form on this website or leave a comment to this blog posting, naming your suggestion and the restaurant’s location!
The challenge is on!
