It’s been fairly quiet here over at Life of Burgers, due largely in part to an extremely busy work schedule. Working 70 hour weeks for the last 9 months was great for the bank account, but it didn’t really allow much time to get my hands on some tasty burgs.
Luckily, the film season is slowing down now for the year in Nova Scotia, which means I’m ready to make up for some lost time and get down to some burger business!
To get me back on track, I swung by Relish and ordered up Le Nordique, and a Centurion poutine to accompany it!
From the menu: “The Rookie (roasted garlic mayo, lettuce, tomato, beet relish) with Swiss cheese, back bacon, dijon, and caramelized onions”
Being the burger lover that I am, I figured it was time to check out a place that has been getting some buzz within Halifax for the burgers that they create. I headed over to Bearly’s, located at 1269 Barrington Street, where the Ace Burger Company has taken over the kitchen with their many different takes on burgers. Having nothing but burgers to choose from, I eventually went with the one they refer to as the Big Bad Wolf.
From the menu: “Roast Pork Belly, Back Bacon, Bacon Marmalade, Beer Mustard, Smoked Gouda, Fried Egg”
Burger #5 brought me to the beautiful Auction House. Located at 1726 Argyle Street, The Auction House features both an extensive food and drink menu. With a very welcoming atmosphere, this restaurant makes way for both a relaxed and formal dining experience. For this burger, I decided to go with the Canadian Burger.
From the menu: “Maple BBQ sauce, topped with Canadian back bacon and cheddar cheese, served on an artisan bun with Auction House secret burger sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickle and crispy fried onions.”
