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 […]

Halifax Burger Week: A History

As Halifax Burger Week approaches its 7th year, and grows larger and larger, I find that there are more and more people who don’t really understand the event. 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. This year I’m noticing an unprecedented amount of criticism, conspiracy, […]

Clubhouse Sandwich 101

I’ve never been a regular consumer of the clubhouse sandwich. When people would ask me to do a clubhouse quest, I would shrug and say, “Club house sandwiches are boring. They’re what you order if you’re playing it safe.” Or if you’re really hungry. There’s a reason they’re popular; they’re filling, they’re reliable, they are visually striking with their multiple […]

History of the Donair Pt 2: The Halifax Donair

I wrote about how the donair evolved from the Greek gyros, which itself is derived from the Turkish doner kebab. At the time I was doing extensive research: conducting interviews, browsing the library archives, and the usual internet sleuthing. I have […]

East of East Dining Series: Gangnam Korean BBQ

Gangnam Korean BBQ 1261 Barrington St, Halifax Korean Barbecue is perhaps the most approachable of Korean dining experiences for the uninitiated. At least, it seems to be popular in Halifax and that’s a good indicator of the gateway for timid palates. As far as I know, there are 5 restaurants offering Korean BBQ in Halifax: Gangnam Korean BBQ, Bi One […]

HFX Ramen Quest: The Final!

The Ramen Quest was a bit of an experiment, as I had never done a head-to-head tournament-style quest before, nor had I been tasked with such impossible logistics. It is easy to share pizza and nachos with a group, but have you ever tried to split up bowls of noodles and broth? Who gets the egg?! Then there is the question […]
