Nova Scotia Food Profiles: Cape Breton Pizza Burgers

If there is one food that screams “Cape Breton” it would be the pizza burger (if not Cape Breton Pizza). It is to Cape Breton what the Cheese Steak is to Philadelphia, what foldable pizza and dirty water dogs are to New York: the most unglamourous, albeit beloved, of comfort foods. It is not a hamburger dressed like a pizza. […]

I started out with a Vegan Taco Quest, where newcomer El Nino kicked some […]

Brunch at Robie St. Station

Robie St. Station  2394 Robie St, Halifax My Brother and I took my Mom out to Robie St. Station for Mother’s Day Brunch on my suggestion, as it has an approachable menu and a bright, funky space.

Top 10 Vegan Junk Foods in Halifax

I’ve always noticed that vegan & vegetarian restaurants seem to serve healthy food. Even a standard burger is likely to have some sort of sprout on it, and I’ll bet ya anything it comes with roasted potatoes or a kale salad! Look – plant-based diets are generally pretty healthy, and the people who follow them are generally into self/world-improvement. But even […]

Since 2013, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the event, its raison d’être, its growth, its shenanigans and most importantly, the burgers.
