Burger #50 – The Big Cheese (Krave)

Before I get into the delicious details of this burger, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that supported Life of Burgers over 2015. It was a great year for LOB, from being the Burger Week Ambassador to winning a Best of Halifax Award, and all the awesome stuff in between. I’m extremely grateful that you all have put up with my burger addiction and have given me so much positive feedback! Here’s to a great, burger-filled 2016!

A big milestone has been reached for Life of Burgers with the arrival of burger number 50! For this one I wanted to leave it up to my readers so I conducted a poll on Twitter where everyone could pick, from 4 local burgers, what they wanted number 50 to be.


It was back and forth between Cheese Curds and Krave but eventually Krave took the win with 57% of the vote, and it was time for me to prepare for the burger beast that is The Big Cheese!

Stats

From the menu: “2 seared beef patties, cheddar, mozza, smokey shoulder bacon, pulled pork, onions, ketchup, mustard and Krave sauce, with a grilled cheese in the middle of it all”

Burger #39 – Peanut Butter Burger (Darrell’s)

One burger fad that I have never been completely sold on is the use of peanut butter. I love both peanut butter and burgers so it would make sense that I would love them together, but that hasn’t necessarily been the case. That being said, I believe that somewhere out there is a burger with peanut butter on it that will blow my away. I decided to head to Darrell’s for their take on this combination. Located at 5576 Fenwick Street, Darrell’s Peanut Butter Burger has become a well known thing around Halifax, so I figured it was only right to start my search here.

Stats

From the menu: “Our traditional BLTCM burger (bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheddar, mayo, mustard, relish, and ketchup) with that stick to the roof of your mouth difference”

Burger #37 – Bacon Cheeseburger (Willy’s)

There are a couple classic spots located throughout the city that have become popular locations for the late-night intoxicated crowd. Since I moved to Halifax, one of these spots has been Willy’s. Located at 5239 Blower’s Street, it is not uncommon to see a long line of people standing outside the order window after a night of drinking. I have stood in that line many times myself, but lately I have come to realize that the food here isn’t that bad when you’re stone cold sober as well. They have a pretty basic menu when it comes to burgers, so I went with the  Bacon Cheeseburger.

Stats

From the menu: “Ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles, fried mushrooms, fried onions (I also splurged and added cheese and bacon)”

Burger #28 – Bacon Cheese (Krave Burger)

With the new year in full swing, it’s time to up my burger game. I have a few different ideas that I’m going to try out for the blog this year, so stay tuned for that!

For now, it’s time to get back to trying out some more burgers that this town has to offer. For the first burger of the year, I decided to try out a place that I (surprisingly) have yet to step foot in. Krave Burger, located at 5680 Spring Garden Road, is a new addition to the Halifax restaurant scene, and has become a pretty popular place. Specializing primarily in burgers, they have options for beef, chicken, and veggie lovers alike. For my first visit, I went with their Bacon Cheese Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Krave Burger (Beef Patty, Krave sauce, mustard, ketchup, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle) topped with local Shoulder Bacon and Cheddar”
