Life of Burgers Goes Across the Pond (Part 1)

Life of Burgers has been pretty quiet lately, but all for good reasons! In July I managed to snag a position working on the new TV series The Mist that filmed in Nova Scotia for 4 months, which was pretty exciting (especially since the NS film/television industry has had it rough over the last year or so), but it kept me very busy and burgers had to be put on hold for a bit.

About a week after the show wrapped, I took a much-needed vacation ‘across the pond’ for a couple weeks in England and Ireland. While there was many awesome and iconic things to see and do in these beautiful countries, I obviously had to take some time to dive into the beefier side of things and see how much burger game they could bring to the table.

I managed to get my hands on 11 different burgers on my trip, and Part 1 is going to showcase 5 of these meaty creations!

Burger #37 – Bacon Cheeseburger (Willy’s)

There are a couple classic spots located throughout the city that have become popular locations for the late-night intoxicated crowd. Since I moved to Halifax, one of these spots has been Willy’s. Located at 5239 Blower’s Street, it is not uncommon to see a long line of people standing outside the order window after a night of drinking. I have stood in that line many times myself, but lately I have come to realize that the food here isn’t that bad when you’re stone cold sober as well. They have a pretty basic menu when it comes to burgers, so I went with the  Bacon Cheeseburger.

Stats

From the menu: “Ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles, fried mushrooms, fried onions (I also splurged and added cheese and bacon)”
