Why Halifax is the Worst Food City

Halifax is a city that punches above its weight when it comes to its culinary scene. We have loads of talent, a farm-to-table ethos, some fantastic pubs, and affordable upscale options (compared to bigger cities). Moreover, we are a quickly growing city, with more and more multicultural options every day. Sure, we have high taxes and low wages and a […]

Best Eats of 2022

I feel like 2022 was kind of an uneventful year. I just realized I’ve written a total of 5 blog posts, and I guess that is because my priorities have shifted a bit. I celebrated 10 Years of Eat This Town this year, as well as my 40th birthday, and I’ve reflected a lot about my journey. My priorities have […]

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.

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 The Old Triangle

My quest continues for the best fish and chips in downtown Halifax. I’ve already reviewed the Resolutes Club, Henry House, Durty Nelly’s, and the Gahan House. Next up is one of my favourite pubs in the entire world: The Old Triangle. The Old Triangle is the closest thing in Halifax you’ll find to an authentic Irish pub (at least, according […]

Fish and Chips at Durty Nelly’s

If you are just tuning in now, heads up – I’m on a quest for the best fish and chips at downtown Halifax pubs. I’ve already reviewed the Resolutes Club and Henry House. We are moving on now to Durty Nelly’s. Durty Nelly’s opened back in 2009 with much fanfare, boasting that the whole bar was designed and built in […]
