2 Prince Edward Island Restaurants That Shocked Us

It started on Christmas Eve.

My father landed in the hospital, my mother was distraught and we were trying to make something out of nothing.

Dad, feeling guilty, suggested we find a place for supper to somehow salvage the Christmas spirit which was less than flowing in the hospital corridors. It was 7PM.

What would be open?

As we cruised the streets of Charlottetown, it looked dismal. Even the fast food restaurants had closed for the night. Then we saw it…the neon lights beckoning us in. Thank God for The Noodle House. From that moment on, The Noodle House became a symbol of a sad time rectified by a good meal and friendly service.

A few years later when my dad passed away accidentally, we were  grieving and so we returned to our comfort place. After a yummy plate of Singapore noodles, we received our fortune cookies. The fortune cookies, those interesting little “add-ons” read without much thought, had never been my favourite. I didn’t like their taste and their sayings were usually ridiculous.

Until that day.

My dad always said in times of trouble – Keep your chin up! And those were the very words delivered in my fortune cookie that day.

Being more attentive to possible “signs”, The Kitchen Witch, another Island restaurant (image in header), known for its fortune-teller who reads tea leaves, was now on my eating radar. My husband had just received his dream job and was curious to know what the leaves would say. The restaurant, being quirky, quaint, and serving yummy food, drew us in. The tea leaf reader kept us hooked. We waited with bated breath. Then she opened her mouth and mine dropped. She hit all the nails on every head and off to Toronto Chris went.

So if you happen to be in Prince Edward Island and are seeking guidance, we strongly suggest these two restaurants which provide both delicious food and a nod in the right direction.

In the meantime, many fortune cookies later, I have to admit that only some actually “work”. I have become a selective believer.

Some of the fortune cookie messages that I believe! Others... I ignore:)

Have you ever visited a fortune-teller? If so, what was your experience?

    That “Keep your chin up” gave me goosebumps. I don’t know if I believe in those things but I would like to. Some airline friends used to visit a fortune teller at a department store in Bangkok whenever they went there (sounds weird, I know) and they always said the things this one fortune teller told them were true. Mostly it was things of the past, rather than the future. It became a bit of a fad at that work place..!

      Sounds very interesting though… visit the store and see a fortune teller! Your job had some intriguing moments I am sure.

    Yes I’ve had readings before and some of them were true. My family always told me readings and all of that stuff is bad. I wrote about talking to a psychic medium/counselor yesterday. I think fortune cookies are fun but I don’t really like the taste of them. I’ve never done the tea leaves. I guess we choose what we want to believe.

      I once had a fortune teller tell me some pretty negative stuff and some came true and others didn’t. It really threw me off of the experience in general. I personally never went back to one. I think I prefer the fortune cookie but I agree, not the taste!

        Oh no! I don’t blame you for not going back. If you ever change your mind and want a reading over the phone feel free to call Diana aka Lady D. She’s very positive and friendly. She tells you the good and bad.

    Hmm, I think I am a sceptic about everything these days (but I’d still eat the noodles).

    I love this post so much! I love the message you got from your dad. I believe in messages being passed between the living and the dead. So lovely. Thank you for sharing :))

  6. I haven’t. Now I’m tempted. Maybe the next PEI visit. Where’s The Noodle House?

      Noodle House is downtown Charlottetown and the Kitchen Witch is outside of Ch’town about 45 min or so.

    Hi my friend! My sons talked to a Fortune-teller on the Santa Monica mall, several years ago. She said the one son would be a lawyer and the other a diplomat. I don’t know how that is going to work out as they are both into body building right now, with their eyes on a career in the fitness world. We will just have to wait and see how this is going to pan out. A body-building corporate lawyer -that should be a first, I would think!
