I’ve already published a History of Burger Week in which I talk about the origin of the event and address some of the controversy surrounding it.

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, […]

Halifax Burger Week: Day 5

So, I was on TV. I won the Coast’s Burger Ambassador contest somehow, and got to have a little 5 mins of burger fame. You can watch the full clip here. After a long day of burgering on Sunday, I decided it was time for a break. Of course, by “taking a break” I meant switching my proteins. The truth is, I […]

Halifax Burger Week: Day 4

Day 4 was the big day! I did a big ‘ol burger crawl of downtown Halifax with my friends Em, Talix, and Tinfoil (of Burger Quest 2013). We started at 1pm, forgetting that Halifax practically closes down on Sunday afternoons! We found the Argyle open, and ordered “The Local”: Oulton’s ground beef, shredded NS lamb, poblano peppers, monterey jack cheese, avocado, […]

Halifax Burger Week: Day 3

Day 3 of Halifax Burger Week was devoted to veggie burgers. I wanted a nice healthy day off from all the grease and red meat. I met up with a friend at Heartwood for a “Wild Card FEED Nova Scotia Burger”. By “wild card”, I thought they meant that you get to choose one of their 3 burgers. Now that […]
