Halifax Taco Quest: “Authentic” Edition

The term “authentic” is problematic, as the world of food is not a static world; cultures have always mixed, cooks have always adapted, and tastes are always changing. The question of “what is an authentic taco?” will likely depend on region and generation. The “spirit” of the taco is also challenged by the availability of ingredients and local tastes. The […]

We haven’t had much of a craze since the gourmet burger/fro-yo boom, but here we are in 2019 freaking out about tacos and doughnuts.

Top 5 Fish Tacos in Halifax

Ever since I was last on the west coast, enjoying Tofino’s Fish Tacos and Victoria’s “tacones“, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about why fish tacos aren’t a thing on the East Coast. I suppose it has everything to do with the fact that we don’t have that link to Mexican culture and a shared coastline with sunny California. Yet just […]

Tofino Fish Tacos

 Thanks to this song, reminiscent of my high school taste in music, my bucket list demanded that I take surfing lessons in Tofino, Canada’s surf capital, located on Vancouver Island. So there I was, last Spring, on the rainy Pacific coast, riding a rental bike in the rain to the beach where I would proceed to get knocked over by […]
