Being someone that is always on the lookout for the next great meal, it is really exciting when a place changes up and/or adds new items to their menu. It’s even more exciting, for me personally, when those changes involve burgers, so it’s safe to say that when I heard about Krave’s new menu, I was very eager to see what they came up with.
Located at 5680 Spring Garden Road, Krave is a modern twist on a classic diner, and they have quickly built a huge fan-following since their opening. Their new menu provided a few new burger options for me to choose from, and I eventually settled on the Steakhouse Burger for this visit.
From the menu: “Seared beef patty, smokey shoulder bacon, mozza, sauteed mushrooms and onions, onion ring and smokey horseradish mayo”
Well, Halifax Burger Week has come and gone, and man was it a meaty adventure! This year the city of Halifax had 59 different burgers to offer for the week, and I managed to try every single one of them. That’s right, I devoted my whole week to this endeavour and I was determined to conquer the week!
It all started with a contest that was put on by The Coast to find two “Burger Ambassadors” who would be in charge of going out and documenting their Halifax Burger Week experience through Twitter and Instagram. They wanted to see your “burger selfie”, and even though I did that, it was only the beginning of my quest to become Ambassador.
Halifax Burger Week is in full swing and it was time to venture out into the city for Day #3! Joining Team Life of Burgers this time was Olivia, Savannah, Jordan, Nadine, and Elaine.
Burger #17 – Peanut Butter Burger from Darrell’s
The Peanut Butter Burger from Darrell’s is a regular menu item and it is hugely popular within Halifax. I, however, have never been a huge fan of it. Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with it, I just don’t really enjoy the combination of peanut butter with their patty. I do, however, think that their patty is pretty good (I’ve had other burgers that use the same patty). With this burger, I also really enjoyed the bun, and it was able to hold up when faced with the peanut butter and burger juices that this burger provides. This burger seems to have a pretty big fan base, so if you think it is something you would like, you should definitely try it and form your own opinion.
Savannah: “I really liked the peanut butter as it wasn’t too sweet, and it worked well with the bacon”
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.
