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 […]

The first chunk of this post will deal with restaurants in Nova Scotia and there is a section at the end for my meals “on the road”. I had a stellar year in 2018! I […]

Bedford Pizza Quest

Bedford was the last zone to be conquered in the Halifax Pizza Quest, and with its completion we have scoured the entirety of the urban HRM (Peninsula, Spryfield, Clayton Park, Fairview, Dartmouth, Sackville). It’s been close to 5 years of questing, and these preliminary findings will help me to narrow down the best pizza in the city. I was looking […]

Brunch at Elle’s Bistro

Elle’s Bistro 1678 Barrington Street Website  I normally wouldn’t consider Elle’s Bistro to be a brunch place, as it is in many ways a classic, family-run diner catering to the downtown lunch crowd. They serve the typical milkshakes and all-day breakfast, burgers and home-cooked meals. They also serve some less-than-typical stuff, like peanut butter burgers and bacon-wrapped mac ‘n cheese. […]

Fish ‘n Chips at Katch Seafood

Katch Seafood Scotia Square Mall (and other locations) Rating: Meh/Good (Rating Scale: WTF, Meh, Good, Some Good, Right Some Good!) I reviewed The Battered Fish back in 2013, but since then (last year, to be precise) The Battered Fish was bought by Pizza Girls who rebranded it to Katch Seafood. There are several locations (Waterfront, Pizza Corner, Scotia Square, Halifax […]

Fish and Chips at Fredie’s Fantastic Fish House (Revisited)

Fredie’s Fantastic Fish House 8 Oland Crescent (Bayer’s Lake) Rating: Good/Some Good (Rating Scale: WTF, Meh, Good, Some Good, Right Some Good!) I originally reviewed Fredie’s Fantastic Fish House in 2014, at which time I declared: “Okay… so this might be the best fish ‘n’ chips I’ve ever had”. Since then, I’ve largely considered it to be some of the best fish […]

We’ve narrowed it down to the top 4, which have advanced to the semi-finals. Last week, Truly Tasty defeated Studio […]
