Burger Week is now only 5 days away, and I can almost taste all the delicious burgers (maybe because I actually have tasted some of them already). I know you are all eager to get out there and get eating, so I’m here with Part 2 of the Halifax Burger Week Preview Series (you can see Part 1 here) to get your mouths watering and your stomachs growling with some tasty burger details!

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.


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

Burger #24 – Swiss & Mushroom Burger (Rogue’s Roost)

One thing that Halifax has a great selection of, is the wide variety of local craft beers that are available to choose from. Many of these local brews have become extremely popular for many Haligonians. One place that contributes to the delicious selection of beer is Rogue’s Roost. Located at 5435 Spring Garden Road, Rogue’s Roost not only brews a great selection of beer, but they also have a pretty tasty menu. Wanting to check off another Spring Garden burger, I went with their Swiss & Mushroom Burger.


From the menu: “Topped with melted swiss cheese and mushrooms and burger sauce”

Burger #22 – Mushroom & Swiss Burger (Your Father’s Moustache)

It’s been about a week since my annual Thanksgiving food coma, so I figured it was time to get another burger. For this one, I went back to a regular spot of mine. Your Father’s Moustache, located at 5686 Spring Garden Road, continues to be a favourite place of mine as they have many different delicious options to choose from. This was my second burger-related visit, and this time I went with their Mushroom & Swiss Burger.

Burger #13 – Pulled Pork Burger (The Factory)

I decided to take a little vacation back home to Prince Edward Island, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to try out a burger at one of the local restaurants. I went to The Factory, located in Charlottetown at 189 Kent Street. The menu for this place is packed full of many delicious meaty options that are sure to satisfy any type of meat-lover. For this burger, I went with the Pulled Pork Burger.


From the menu: “Hickory smoked pulled pork and a juicy 6 oz. patty with onion rings, cheddar cheese, mushrooms and onions”
