Summer Kitchen

Summer Kitchen is a new restaurant in Charlottetown that’s moved into the space occupied for decades previous by the venerable Noodle House, which moved downtown recently.

The building has received a long-deserved clean-up and renovation; the pervasive pink has been expunged, and replaced by shades of red. The place has never looked better.

Oliver and I stopped in for lunch mid-afternoon yesterday. There being no vegetarian options evident on the menu, we asked our server for recommendations; she called the chef out to speak with us, and we took him up on his suggestion of spicy eggplant and tofu over rice.

The result was very good; indeed it may have been the first palatable version of eggplant I’ve ever been served.

They’re starting off slowly at Summer Kitchen, waiting for additional staff to arrive before they step on the accelerator. Now might be the best time for you to stop in for a meal, before it gets really popular, as I’m sure it will.

Open every day except Tuesday. Our bill was $16 for two, which included a plate of vegetarian spring rolls to start.

The podcast format: delightful, quick, excellent.

Congratulations on having another good vegetarian food option close by.

Eggplant a new friendship, eh?

A great boon to the ease-and-frequency of podcasting for Oliver and me has been using Hi-Q MP3 Recorder on my Android phone coupled with a email-to-webhook that allows me to email MP3 files to a dedicated email address and have them automagically turned into Drupal nodes. The lowers the podcasting friction to almost nothing: we recorded that podcast at our table in the restaurant, and it was posted here roughly 30 seconds later.

It doesn’t make for the most polished of podcasts, but the lack of an opportunity to edit means that we write with pen not pencil, so to speak.
