Brunch at Mappatura Bistro

My family have been fans of Chef Terry Vassallo ever since his days at Trattoria Della Nonna in Lunenburg, where we came to expect generous portions of seafood with Italian flair. We followed him to Cafe Chianti where his Linguine di Pescatore was a big hit. Terry has recently opened his own restaurant with his partner, Simone Mombourquette (who is also his […]

Brunch at Durty Nelly’s

Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub 1660 Argyle St, Halifax, NS Durty Nelly’s recently launched a new brunch menu and invited me to check it out. I was pretty much sold on the Caesar menu and the prospect of a full Irish breakfast! About that Caesar list – there are 6 signature Caesars made with 6 types of booze. I got the Bushmills […]

Breakfast is serious business in Ireland. In the south, you’ve got your full Irish breakfast. This varies somewhat but may involve: – fried egg – bacon rashers (back bacon) – […]

Brunch at Studio East

Studio East 6021 Cunard St, Halifax I recently took my pal MGyver out for a belated birthday brunch. He suggested Studio East, having been nothing but impressed with his experiences there. I hadn’t been to Studio East yet, so I was all over that. I had been to Saronn’s Kitchen at the Seaport Market, purchasing her flavourful Cambodian food, and of […]

Brunch at Your Father’s Moustache

I recently had a visitor from Calgary – Lu, a soon-to-be Haligonian who will assuredly be my brunch partner in times to come. Lu wanted eggs benny and it was cold out, so we ended up going somewhere close by which in this case was Your Father’s Moustache. It’s a popular spot, I told her. Standard pub food, really, but […]

Brunch at The Coastal

The Coastal 2731 Robie St, Halifax The first time I discussed brunch on this blog was my review of The Coastal Cafe (2012). The Los Huevos Rancheros ($11.25) is just as iconic today as it was then, even though buffalo chicken has replaced the mole duck. This is one of my favourite brunch dishes in the city. I had it again recently without meat […]

Brunch at Bistro Le Coq

Last Sunday a crew of us went for brunch at Bistro Le Coq, which serves an elegant brunch with some French flair. We started out with some perfectly decent Caesars which they call the “uncle buck”. Clamato is blended with pot au feu jus, dijon, horseradish and 1 oz rye ($7). Kind of pricey for one shot, but had a […]

Brunch at The Stubborn Goat

Well, the plan was to go to the Coastal but due to street maintenance/construction the Coastal was closed for the day. So my bro and I decided to u-turn back downtown to The Stubborn Goat because I heard tell of some new menu items. My last Stubborn Goat brunch post mainly concerned the chicken and waffles, and I complained about […]
