Halifax Burger Week 2017 Preview – Part 2

It’s only 3 days until Halifax Burger Week, and restaurants are prepping for the masses that will be travelling around the HRM looking for their next great burger. With over 95 restaurants to choose from this year, there are plenty of delicious burgers for your consideration, and I’m here to give you an inside scoop into a few more of them with Part 2 of the Burger Week Preview Series (you can check out Part 1 here).

Take a look at the beefy burgs being served up at The Barrington, HFX Sports Bar, and The Auction House for the event this year!

Burger #30 – Smokehouse (2 Doors Down)

Halifax may be still recovering from the layer of ice that it was covered in recently, but that doesn’t mean the burger life has to slow down any! As of late, there has been a lot of burger excitement throughout Halifax with the upcoming Halifax Burger Week. The Coast is once again doing their Burger Week from March 19th – 25th, which is a great opportunity to both try some of the best restaurants in the city, as well as stuff your face with as many different burgers as possible. Right now, you can even go on Twitter or Instagram and show your support for who you think should be the Burger Ambassador for the week (maybe a certain Halifax-based burger blogger *wink wink nudge nudge*), which gives two lucky people the chance to cover burger week, and report back to the public all the meaty details!

With Burger Week on the mind, it is a perfect time for me to get my next burger, which just so happens to be #30! For this one, I decided to go with a burger, that is one of the ones that gets most recommended to me, from the downtown restaurant 2 Doors Down. Located at 1533 Barrington Street, 2DD is still a fairly new addition to Halifax, but has received many rave reviews from Halifax diners. After hearing lots of praise for it, I knew it was time to get myself a Smokehouse burger.
