Sol Brings Flavor to 15 Kendrick Avenue

2008 guests mentioned the discovery of Sol, a restaurant tucked into the WHAT building, in a space where Uncle Frank used to hold sway, beside Wellfleet harbor. Kurt and John operate this new ethnic eatery, which offers flavorful food in a casual setting. Hawaiian and Costa Rican influences make Sol stand out from other Wellfleet restaurants. It's open seven nights a week and serves not only dinner, but breakfast and lunch as well. Sol is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before the show at WHAT’s harbor stage, next-door. The combination of exotic flavors makes up for the fact that the portions are not super-sized and come in plastic baskets. It was obvious to me that care had gone into both the menu and the modern decor. I enjoyed my “spiced giant shrimp over noodle and rabe stir fly with red curry coconut sauce," but Sven was not crazy about “Kahlua pig over garlic steamed greens and coriander noodles,” although it sounded amazing. Since the town has not yet produced Sol’s liquor license, for the time being, Sol remains Bring Your Own Wine and Beer – oh, and a corkscrew to avoid the $5 charge for uncorking the bottle.
