[Charlottetown, PEI] Brakish

J and I recently purchased a vacation home with our company in Charlottetown, PEI, so Eastern Canada will be on our travel plans a lot more often now. Our original plan was to buy one in Halifax, but quickly changed our minds after returning to Charlottetown for two summer road trips (in 2016 and 2017).

Despite the high food prices (compared to other cities within the vicinity, we really enjoyed our time in PEI. Brakish was the very first restaurant that we ate at upon our arrival in the city; it's a seafood-centric restaurant located on the historic Charlottetown Harbour. There, we had a very casual lunch before going sight-seeing around the downtown Charlottetown since check-in at the hotel wasn't available until 3 pm.The one good thing about having a property here is that we no longer have to pay high prices for hotel or motel in the summer (due to the bustling tourism season).

Seafood Chowder ($11) - cream base with scallops, shrimp, clams, mussels, and potatoes 

PEI Mussels ($14) - wine wine and garlic 

I was under the impression that lobster rolls and seafood would be cheaper in PEI than Toronto. However, that was not the case for the bustling city filled with locals and tourists alike. I opted for the PEI Lobster + Crab Roll ($18) - lobster and crab mixed with lettuce, lemon, parsley, caramelized onion mayo, on top of split bun with fries as my entree. Despite the price being on par with Toronto, the lobster roll was of a substantial portion. I enjoyed it very much!

Many of the restaurants in Charlottetown that has a large seafood-based menu are often opened seasonally only. So please note that Brakish is temporarily closed for the winter season. They are scheduled to reopen on June 1, 2018.
