FlipBurger

Burger Quest Category: Gourmet-Style Today at school I gave a presentation on hamburgers with a couple of classmates (I love school)! To “prepare” for our hamburger presentation, Team Hamburger decided we should eat some hamburgers. Makes sense, right? I suggested we go to FlipBurger since it is the last contestant on my Gourmet Burger Quest. FlipBurger (not to be confused […]

Cheese Curds Gourmet Burgers & Poutinerie

Burger Quest Category: Gourmet-Style Cheese Curds is a “chef inspired” locally sourced gourmet hamburger haven snuggled between a community college and an oil refinery. Envisioned and executed by chef Bill Pratt, this was the first of its kind in Halifax. Indeed, it is Cheese Curds that broke the sad burger spell in Halifax that at one time almost led me […]

Ace Burger Co.

Halifax Burger Quest Category: Gourmet-Style This post was supposed to happen a week ago when I made the unfortunate assumption that Ace Burger would be open for both days of City Harvest. It was a very disappointing Sunday, when it seemed as though no restaurants were open in north end Halifax. So heads up burger eaters! Sunday is not your […]

Detroit Coney Island Hot Dogs

Hamburgers and hot dogs, despite having their origins in German cuisine, are as American as apple pie (which, ironically, is also not uniquely American). But America is the champion of hot dogs! Every region has its own variation. For example, in upstate New York, they eat “Michigans”, but in Michigan they eat “Coneys”. To make matters worse, they don’t eat […]

Unique Foods of Nova Scotia

After writing my post about the unique foods of Newfoundland, I was inspired to do one for Nova Scotia. I know what you’re thinking; oh! foods of Nova Scotia! Mussels, scallops, haddock, clams and the omnipresent lobster. Yes, these are all celebrated foods of Nova Scotia, and yes, they are fantastic. But you can get quality seafood anywhere there is a decent […]

Windsor-Style Pizza

When I lived in Calgary, I worked with several individuals from the small city of Windsor, Ontario. Relying largely on Detroit’s automotive industry, or lack thereof, Windsor folks are represented amongst the work-hungry migrants who find themselves in Calgary. These friends of mine taught me things I didn’t know – many things! Such as: Windsor is the southernmost city in […]

I made sure to eat my way through this amazing place, and here are 6 things I had never eaten (or even heard of) before visiting. For the best […]
