Burger #53 – Burger from Black Sheep

It’s always exciting when a new restaurant opens in the city. It’s even more exciting for me when they include a brand new burger on their menu! Black Sheep recently opened their doors on Dresden Row and they boast “Brunch by day. Small plates, craft beer, and cocktails by night”, which is a statement that is sure to please both early risers and night owls alike. I was not expecting a brunch place to serve a burger, but I was pleasantly surprised to see one pop up on the premiere menu. Simply titled “Burger” (it’s only a matter of time before they give it a SHEEPish name), it is a breakfast inspired meal that I knew I just had to try!

Burger #35 – Mozza Chicken Burger (Fickle Frog)

Don’t forget to vote for Life of Burgers for Best Food Blogger in The Coast’s Best of Halifax Awards!

Since starting this blog, one thing I have learned is that burgers come in all different shapes and sizes. You can have ones that are plain and simple, or there can be ones that are extravagant, inventive, and (sometimes) over the top. There is also numerous possibilities when it comes to the meat you can use. While LoB initially started out mostly dealing with beef burgers, I’ve decided that it’s time to start expanding. This is where Fickle Frog comes in. Located at 5675 Spring Garden Road, this has been a place where I have enjoyed a few beef burgers (and maybe a few beer). I chose this place to be the first burger of the chicken variety for Life of Burgers, and it was titled the Mozza Chicken Burger.

From the menu: “A chicken breast topped with mozzarella cheese and aioli. Served with lettuce, tomato, sweet onions and baked until golden”

Burger #17 – The Frog Burger (The Fickle Frog)

After a bit of a break from the burger life (sometimes work gets in the way), I figured it was time to get back to it. For this burger, I went to a favourite place of mine, The Fickle Frog. Located at 5675 Spring Garden Road, The Fickle Frog is a great place to grab a beer and a meal without having to go deep into downtown Halifax. With a wide range of food on their menu, there is sure to be something to satisfy even the most pickiest of eaters. For this burger, I went with The Frog Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “100% pure sirloin beef patty, pepper jack cheese, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, sweet onion, bacon with house aioli”
