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 #47 – South West Burger (Your Father’s Moustache)

I’m quickly closing in on burger #50, and I’m pretty excited to reach this milestone! I’m not quite there yet though, so it’s time to get to work. For #47 I headed back to Your Father’s Moustache for my third burger from here; a burger hat-trick if you will. They have a section on their menu that’s completely devoted to burgers, and this time I decided to go with the South West Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “100% pure beef patty grilled with Bull’s-Eye BBQ sauce, and topped with sauteed chipotle onions, mozzarella cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, and pickle”

Burger #46 – Chicken Caprese Burger (Krave)

With the cold days approaching, my preferred way of staying warm is chowing down on some delicious burgers! For this one, I headed back to the always tasty Krave Burger. Up until this point I had only tried their beef burgers, but this time I decided to switch it up and go with their Chicken Caprese Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Juicy slow-roasted chicken, mozza, basil mayo, lettuce, tomato and balsamic vinaigrette”

Burger #42 – Steakhouse Burger (Krave)

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.

Stats

From the menu: “Seared beef patty, smokey shoulder bacon, mozza, sauteed mushrooms and onions, onion ring and smokey horseradish mayo”
