Cedar’s Eatery has been a Charlottetown landmark since 1979, serving up top-notch Lebanese food — and now you can pick up a taste of the popular P.E.I. restaurant at Sobeys stores across Atlantic Canada, a new garlic spread called The Original Maroun’s.
The spread, named by Cedar’s current owner Ryan Abdallah for his father Maroun, who founded the restaurant and created the original recipe, retails for $5.99 for a 200-gram container.

“We noticed that there was a great demand,” said Abdallah, explaining Cedar’s customers asked to buy the spread to take home.
