Coast-flavoured ice cream, at Dee Dee's.
  • Coast-flavoured ice cream, at Dee Dee's.
Now in at Dee Dee's Ice Cream (5668 Cornwallis Street, 407-6614), just a block and a half from The Coast office, is a limited edition Coast-flavoured ice cream: Propeller Porter and local rasberry/blackberry cheesecake. My bosses are such that they closed down the office, walked us over and bought us each a scoop or two. Reviews are: awesome! Get yours while it lasts!

Adding... the flavour was the suggestion of reader Aaron Ward, whose idea was judged best by the Coast staff.

NovAfrican Designs, Artifacts & Cuisine opens on Gottingen

New boutique and food options at former Good Food Emporium

Posted By on Mon, Aug 29, 2011 at 3:36 PM

Zimbabwe-born Shelly Muchayi had been selling her imported African goods and food from the back of a van and at farmers markets since 2000, but people kept asking her if she had a store they could visit. Now, finally, she does: Opened August 24 at the former location of Good Food Emporium on Gottingen Street is NovaAfrican Designs, Artifacts & Cuisine, or NADA Cuisine for short. Stop by for spicy or mild Zimbabwe chicken, rice, vegetables and soups, where 28 can sit at tables. Fewer booths means there's a little more space than was allotted at the old GFE, and nothing on the menu is more than $9.99. If you drop by---hours are 8am-8:30pm, Monday to Friday---you'll also find a separate section of fine imported goods: gifts and baskets, as well as jewellery Muchayi makes herself.

Doraku becomes Suzuki

Japanese resto on Dresden Row changes its name

Posted By on Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 4:00 AM

Formerly known as Doraku Japanese Cuisine , the popular Dresden Row Japanese restaurant is now to be known as Suzuki Restaurant (1579 Dresden Row, 425-8888) The name was changed to limit confusion with Spring Garden Place's similarly named Japanese eatery Ko-Doraku---it had made for customer confusion for pick-up orders. Suzuki was chosen as a Japanese name familiar to western ears and also because it's the name of the family who runs the restaurant. Otherwise, all remains the same. Check them out at their new website, suzukirestaurant.ca.

Evan's Seafood Restaurant

New-ish Alderney Landing operation doing well.

Posted By on Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 3:13 PM

evans.jpg
Evan d’Entremont, a fisherman out of West Publico on the south shore, has been selling his catch at the Dartmouth Farmers’ Market in Alderney Landing for about four years, care of his son Jimmy d’Entremont. Earlier this summer, the family enterprise grew by taking over the former Ducky’s space---Evan asked his daughter Joline d’Entremont and her husband Oussama ait Oumenni to move back from Montreal, where Joline was teaching school, to open Evan’s Seafoord Restaurant (466-2118). The restaurant sells a solid menu of fish and chips, scallops, clams, fish burgers, seafood chowder, lobster poutine and lobster sandwiches, all using Evan’s fish. There are gluten free options, too, made with bread from Mahone Bay’s Schoolhouse Gluten-Free Gourmet. Joline, the public face for the restaurant, convinced me to try the gluten-free, and I’m happy to report it’s down right tasty. As well, the restaurant sells the smoked and frozen fresh fish from the Farmers’ Market counter. With the old interior wall and raised platforms removed, the space is a welcome and inviting change, overlooking the harbour, with patio seating as well. Hours are Tues-Fri 10am-7pm, Sat 10am-5pm and Sun 11am-5pm.

Bistro Le Coq opens

A new French bistro on Argyle Street

Posted By on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 at 1:13 PM

We originally heard it was going to be called Le Coquerel, but in fact it has opened with the more satisfying and potentially humorous handle Bistro Le Coq. It's a French bistro from the good people at RCR Hospitality, owners of CUT Steakhouse, Onyx, Waterfront Warehouse, Victory Arms Pub and Q Smokehouse. Le Coq is in the former location of Mosaic, at 1584 Argyle Street. Prices are reasonable and dishes look tasty. Check out their menu here.
