5 Types of Burritos on Spring Garden Road

The Quest for the Best Fast Food Burger

When Halifax ReTales announced that he was gonna do a fast food burger tour in preparation for Halifax Burger Week, I was so down. His plan was to sample and evaluate a bargain burger from each of the 6 major chains. He even brought a scale to weigh the burgers to compare price/weight/quality. This is something I’ve always wanted to […]

In this series so far: A Full Irish Breakfast Irish Pubs So now that I’ve talked about breakfast and pub food, I’m ready to discuss a few lesser known Irish foods like chicken filet rolls and tacos chips.

Best Meals of 2015

I mostly blog about pizza and other casual grub but once a year I like to take this opportunity to show and tell my fancier meals. I try to get out to a nice restaurant at least once a month (I think I averaged 1.6 per month this year). I’ll just talk about my best Maritime meals in this post. Rest […]

But it was still a fantastic year, and Eat This Town has continued to grow! Here are some highlights: I said I would bring you 12 months of brunch, but I only delivered […]

Agricola Street Brasserie

This was attempt #2 on getting a reservation for Agricola Street Brasserie, aptly named for the street on which it resides. Not only that, but the restaurant is named after the pen-name of John Young, who wrote letters to newspapers from 1818-1822 calling for agricultural self-reliance in Nova Scotia. His pen-name was “Agricola” which is Latin for “farmer”, and Agricola […]
