Adventures in Chicago-style Hot Dogs!

If you’ve been following me long enough you’ll know that I’m obsessed with Chicago. I’ve been there several times and I always jam as much food into my mouth as I can. I’ve written about my adventures with Chicago Italian Beef Sandwiches and Chicago Pizza but I’ve thus far neglected the third pillar of the Chicago food pyramid: the Chicago-style […]

Fish ‘n Chips at Tin Pan Alley

Tin Pan Alley 1990 Barrington St, Halifax (Scotia Square Food Court) Rating: Right Some Good! (Rating Scale: WTF, Meh, Good, Some Good, Right Some Good!)

The speciality here is Dutch-style frites, fashionably served with […]

Outer Sackville Pizza Quest

The Halifax Pizza Quest has conquered all of Halifax & Dartmouth (including Clayton Park, Fairview and Spryfield) and now we have eaten our way through Sackville.

If you take away the tortilla, you still have a feast of meat, rice, beans and veggies (a.k.a. “burrito bowl”) and the fun part is customizing all of this into a personalized package. You can make […]

Calgary Pizza Adventures

When I lived in Calgary (2009-2012) I had to make some adjustments to my lifestyle: long commutes, long underwear, and longing for garlic fingers! I learned that pizza shops make pizza – not poutine, nachos, burgers or fish ‘n chips. I learned that shrimp goes on pizza and that ranch dressing goes on everything. I also discovered that many of the […]
