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).

Halifax Burger Week 2017 Preview – Part 1

We are now only 1 week away from the beginning of one of my favourite times of the year! Halifax Burger Week is back again for it’s 5th year, and the awesome team over at The Coast has rounded up over 95 restaurants to participate in the most burger-filled week Halifax has ever seen!

There is a wide range of burger choices for you to choose from this year, ranging from beef to lamb to veggie, and even kangaroo, and with all these patty options comes a HUGE variety of original topping combinations. With this massive amount of burgers to choose from, picking which ones you will try can be a difficult task, but I’m here to hopefully make your decisions a little easier with the Halifax Burger Week Preview Series – 2017 Edition!

I’ve had the pleasure of trying a lot of great Burger Week burgers so far, and I’m going to showcase each one in this series so you can get an early look at some of the meaty (and not so meaty) greatness you have to look forward to come March 23rd. Starting things off with Part 1 are burgers from Durty Nelly’s, Krave, and Cheese Curds!

Halifax Burger Week 2016 Wrap-Up

Burger squirrels, burger cars, and burger heat. These were all things that could be found throughout Halifax during this year’s Burger Week. With a whopping 79 restaurants participating this year, the choices were endless for those looking for a good burger, and the list of restaurants that really stepped up is a long one!

While this year I didn’t tackle every burger like last year (burgers can get pricey when you don’t have that Ambassador title), I still had a pretty successful Burger Week. I got to interview this year’s Burger Ambassadors, which you can read here, and numerous restaurants let me come in for a sneak peek of their burger before the week even began!

This year I got to preview 13 burgers, and through Burger Week I ate another 22, making for 35 whole burgers that I got to try out. I was really amazed with all the delicious burgers that I ate this year, and picking my top choices was not an easy task. However, I have finally come to a decision on which ones, just narrowly, beat out the rest this year, in my opinion.

Here are my Top 3 burgers, as well as some honourable mentions, from Halifax Burger Week 2016!

Halifax Burger Week 2016 – Burgers 7-14

Burger Week is now over halfway done, and it doesn’t seem like Halifax is slowing their consumption down anytime soon. With the end of the week in sight, I have been adding more and more burgers to my list, to the point of not knowing how I will make time, or stomach space, to try them. However, I will be pushing until the end of Day 7 to make sure I get to experience all the ones that I want to.

For now, I’m back to give you a look at 8 more burgers I have tried, and hopefully it will point you in the right direction in terms of burger choices. Trust me when I say that you’re going to want to read this one, because there is some awesome burgers this time around!

Halifax Burger Week 2016 – Burgers 1-6

Burger Week is now in full swing, and everyone is talking about what burgers they love, and which ones fell short. I have been powering through multiple burgers a day, and I figured I would give my thoughts on the burgers I’ve tackled.

My time has mostly been devoted to eating burgers, and laying down after eating burgers, so my thoughts here are mostly going to be right to the point. Let me know if you agree, or disagree, with anything I have to say on the first six burgers (I love a good burger debate)!

Halifax Burger Week 2016 – Meet Your Burger Ambassadors!

The glory, the fame, the meat sweats. These are all things that come with the highly sought after role of Halifax Burger Ambassador. As last year’s Ambassador, I know firsthand how awesome it is to fill this role, and it really made my Burger Week a memorable experience. Parading around Halifax with my burger sash and Team LOB, I had people coming up to me everywhere to talk burgers and take pictures, and ask the very popular question: “Are you really going to eat them all?!”. Well, I did eat them all and I lived to tell about it, but with a new Burger Week on its way, it is time to pass the torch on to this year’s Burger Ambassadors!

Given my status as Ambassador Alumni, The Coast asked me to find out more about this year’s new burger-loving Ambassadors, and how they plan on tackling the meatiest week of the year!
