Burger #36 – The Donicken (Foggy Goggle)

Be sure to head over to The Coast website and vote Life of Burgers for Best Food Blogger for the Best of Halifax Awards! Voting closes July 31st!

One thing that I try to be weary of when trying new burgers, are ones that are trying to be too ambitious. This could mean way too many toppings, an unusual combination of ingredients, or just the sheer size of the burger itself. That being said, I want to give a fair shot to each burger, kind of a “don’t knock it til you try it” way of thinking. The Donicken from Foggy Goggle initially had me worried that it may fall into this category, but being a lover of meat, I figured that I had to at least give it a try (and I’m glad I did).

Burger #33 – Old School (2 Doors Down)

Enjoy reading about my burger adventures? Be sure to head over to The Coast and vote Life of Burgers for Best Food Blogger!

One of the best things about trying all different kinds of burgers, is that I get to find places that become instant favourites. This is definitely the case with 2 Doors Down. Located at 1533 Barrington Street, 2 Doors Down has become one of the most talked about restaurants in the city. During Halifax Burger Week, they killed it with their Steakhouse Slider, and it became the burger of the week for not only myself, but many others. Having already reviewed their Smokehouse Burger, it was time to sink my teeth into the Old School Cheeseburger.
