Post-Pandemic Nacho Quest!

Welcome to the Post-Pandemic Nacho Quest! (And to those saying, “The pandemic is still ongoing” – I know, I know. This is just the first Nacho Quest since the beginning of the pandemic. Sharing finger foods hadn’t exactly been encouraged for a while, ya know?). So why another Nacho Quest? Well, things left off in 2019 and seemed final. The […]

10 Years of Eat This Town!

It’s been 10 years of Eat This Town. Crazy. It seems like just yesterday that blogs were still kinda newish and exciting, and now they seem to struggle for relevance in a world of easily digestible TikToks and Instagram stories. Some of us bloggers have shifted to social media influencing and marketing, while others have moved into more formal writing […]

My Shop Local Grocery Challenge 2022

Shop local, they say. It’ll make you feel good, they say. Let’s put this to the ultimate test! There has been lots of grocery talk lately, from inflation to shrinkflation, to the cops at the doors of your local Superstore (due to said inflation). Public servants protecting private interests…. with guns? What could go wrong?! What kind of corporate stranglehold […]

The Best Vegan Donair in Halifax

Over the years that I spent researching the donair, ultimately leading up to writing the Book of Donair, I sampled over 50 donairs in 6 cities. I have written posts about the History of Donairs, Calgary Donairs, Edmonton Donairs and even Toronto donairs. But this post about Vegan Donairs has been a long time coming! If you are a vegan […]

Veganuary 2022: 10 Things I Learned

This is my second year doing Veganuary and by now I’m feeling like a seasoned pro. Why do I do Veganuary, you ask? I have always been partial to a vegetarian (er, pescatarian) diet, but over the course of the past 10 years I’ve found myself eating more omnivorously than I did in my 20s. Now in 2022, in the […]

My Top 21 Eats of 2021

I’m trying to remember the highs and lows of 2021 but it’s all a blur! I think the highlights of my year were getting called back to work and finally getting to visit friends and family in Calgary. The lowest part of the year was losing my dear Grandmother 🙁 And I have just been informed that Betty White has […]

Fish and Chips at Rudy & Olive’s

Rudy & Olive’s 793 Bedford Hwy, Bedford, NS I’ve been reviewing fish and chips since 2013, which is long enough that I have had to revisit places that I first reviewed 7 or 8 years ago. In all this time, there hasn’t been many new fish and chips specialty shops to check out anyway. Vicky’s (of Coldbrook) opened a location […]

Fish and Chips at Acadian (revisted)

I last reviewed Acadian Fish and Chips in 2014, which, living on the peninsula without a car at the time, required bumming a ride. Nowadays, I road trip everywhere with The Side Dish, but we still haven’t had a reason to go to Hammonds Plains. Well, she recently had to go out that way for work, so I hopped in […]

The Legend of Eggs Halifax

On December 7th, 2020, a nationwide search was sparked when someone on the popular Bravo show, Below Deck, ordered something called “Eggs Halifax”. Below Deck viewers and Canadian foodies were perplexed: What is eggs Halifax? Where is it served? Is it served in Halifax? Why is it called that? Who is calling it that? WTF? It was becoming more mysterious […]
