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, […]

The Quest for the Best Fast Food Burger

When Halifax ReTales announced that he was gonna do a fast food burger tour in preparation for Halifax Burger Week, I was so down. His plan was to sample and evaluate a bargain burger from each of the 6 major chains. He even brought a scale to weigh the burgers to compare price/weight/quality. This is something I’ve always wanted to […]

Nova Scotia Food Profiles: Peanut Butter Burgers

The peanut butter burger’s ooey gooey allure has permeated Halifax burger culture ever since Darrell’s popularized the concept in the 90’s. A visitor to Halifax is often wary of the oft repeated call to action: “You gotta try the peanut butter burger at Darrell’s! It’s a Halifax must.” Peanut butter? On a burger?! Far out, man. Now that we’re post-gourmet-burger-boom, […]

Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg is marked as “Corso Italia” – it was originally the “Little Italy” district in Winnipeg, but over the years, it’s grown to host […]

This restaurant offers gourmet burgers, poutine, chicken, fish, pitas and salads. By “chicken” they mean strips and wings, by “fish” they mean fish and chips, and by “pitas” they mean just about […]

Rock Bottom Brew Pub

I’m going to take a break from smoked meat sandwiches for a bit and return to burger questing! I have had some inquiries and recommendations concerning various hamburgers in Halifax, which I haven’t yet gotten to because I was focusing on “gourmet-style” burgers. Now I am going to shift my focus to pub-style burgers, and I’m also accepting recommendations if […]

Halifax Burger Quest: Gourmet Burger Finals!

It’s time to announce the winners of my Halifax Gourmet Burger Quest! Just to review: I ordered signature beef burgers and French fries at each place. Veggie burgers were also reviewed. I don’t believe in numerical ratings passing as science when it comes to food analysis, but I do like categories. My bias is towards big, juicy, beefy Nova Scotia […]

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 […]
