Burger #62 – Le Nordique (Relish)

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”

Burger #38 – Beef & Blue Burger (Stubborn Goat)

When I first visited Stubborn Goat, I didn’t have the experience I had quite hoped for. I had heard so much hype about this new addition to the Halifax restaurant scene so when the burger I ordered wasn’t the greatest, I was sure that this was just a fluke and I knew I had to come back again and give them another shot. During Burger Week I visited them again to try their Hellfire Burger, and I was really happy with my experience on this return visit (even if the spiciness of the burger brought tears to my eyes). I decided it was time to go back and try another one of their burgers, this time the Beef & Blue Burger.


From the menu: “Urban blue cheese, pickled onion, smoked bacon, dijon”
