Burger #63 – The Smoke Burger (Durty Nelly’s)

Way back in 2014, when Life of Burgers was still pretty new, I paid a visit to Durty Nelly’s one evening where I found a burger that thoroughly impressed me. It was called the Whiskey Smoke Burger, and between the onion rings, the whiskey apple BBQ sauce, and the Guinness honey mustard, it quickly became one of my favourite burgers in the city.

However, it is normal for restaurants to change up their menus from time to time (which can be either really great or a swing and a miss), and unfortunately the Whiskey Smoke Burger didn’t make the cut during one of these changes and I had to say goodbye to a burger that treated me right.

While that one may be gone, it just so happens that there is another burger on the menu that has many similarities to the old one, with a few changes. I stopped by to try The Smoke Burger, hopeful that it would be just as good as the one I had 4 years ago.


From the menu: “Smoked garlic aioli, bacon, smoked cheddar, BBQ sauce, lettuce, pickle, onion rings”

Burger #27 – Beef and Bacon (The Stubborn Goat)

With the hustle and bustle of the Christmas/New Years season over, I can finally get back to the burger life! My first post for 2015 (but admittedly not my first burger as I technically ate this one in 2014) deals with a burger that comes from The Stubborn Goat. Located at 1579 Grafton Street, The Stubborn Goat is a fairly new addition to the Downtown Halifax restaurant scene. With a few different options on their menu, I settled on theĀ Beef and Bacon Burger.


From the menu: “House pickle, brie, bacon, lettuce, tomato, garlic aioli”
