Where would you recommend to go for some of the best seafood meals (lobster rolls and fish) and the best french fry trucks?

HI there;

Thank you for your inquiry to Ask an Islander. 

Lobster rolls are a classic summertime meal for locals and visitors alike. In fact, a local campaign, PEI Lobster Love, pitted 35 restaurants against one another vying for the title of most loved for the past two years.

PEI Lobster Love Winners

  • LOBSTER IN THE BUFF from the Water Prince Corner Shop in Charlottetown claimed PEI Lobster Love's Most Loved Lobster Roll in 2021, and
  • THE CLASSIC SWEET & SALTY from the Lobster Barn in Victoria by the Sea earned the title during the inaugural year of 2020.

Of course, both restaurants continue to offer these winning lobster rolls.

Big-size French fries

Prince Edward Island potato producers grow some of the best potatoes in the world so it makes sense to search out the best French fries while vacationing here.

You'll find my favourite fries in the North Cape Coastal Drive region of the Island. Don't look for a food truck but rather the giant potato at the Canadian Potato Museum in O'Leary. You can order fresh cut PEI fries to go from the PEI Potato Country Kitchen (see photo below).
