on the road

PEI and hidden treasures!

Just returned from a most delicious dinner at the Boat Shop Steak & Seafood in Northport, PEI. This place is a gem.

We had had a couple of really bad salads the day before in Fredericton but we were both really craving good food after so much crap on the road. We were not disappointed!

Our starter green salads were so fresh and deep green with lots of crunchy veg! Wished I had ordered the large instead of small. presentation was great – served on a half shell (not a real one but still a cute idea!)

Main course – yummy! On the recommendation of our server, Cheryl, both Scott and I ordered the pan seared halibut filet. I have no words! light and flaky, the halibut tasted like it had been seared in coconut oil – not sure – just crazy yummy! It was served with a yogurt dill sauce that had just the right amount of flavour!

Not sure if we should have done this, but we ordered dessert anyway! Everything is homemade and it sure tasted like it! I had the blueberry bread pudding with the brown sugar sauce. Seriously, fantastic!

The ambience was nice, not special but nice. Being right on the water was a treat as we watched herons fly past, boats come in, and the sun go down. Decorated in navy blue and white with the obvious nautical accents, the Boat Shop did not disappoint! We went on the recommendation of our host at our B&B, Hunter House Inn.

We are planning a return visit before we leave this part of the Island. For now, we trying to figure out how to work off the sugar high from dessert.

Definitely a “must do” if you are visiting the north cape. Delicious!

Of course you KNOW I’m going to try to recreate that bread pudding! Picture below…. After it was half eaten! Sorry!

Happy noshing!
