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 #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”

Burger #31 – Southwestern Burger (The Argyle)

Life of Burgers is back! After a couple months of special circumstances (recovering from Burger Week and some major tech issues) with no reviews, I have returned to make it up to my readers!

Now that I’m back, I’m ready for a burger-filled summer, and sharing my findings with you guys. I recently headed back to The Argyle, where one of my favourite burgers thus far comes from. Located at 1575 Argyle Street, The Argyle is one of the many restaurants that are extremely popular during “patio season”. For my second visit, I went with the Southwestern Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Guacamole, smoked bacon, jalapeño, crispy onions and spicy Monterey Jack, lettuce and tomato”

Burger #25 – South Western (Flipburger)

With the cold weather approaching, there is nothing like a tasty burger to warm you up, or at least fill your stomach with some delicious meaty goodness. Looking for a quick bite to eat for lunch, I headed back to 1565 Argyle Street, where Flipburger is located. With multiple signature burgers to pick from, I decided it was time to cross the South Western off my list.

Stats

From the menu: “Guacamole, Oulton’s double smoked bacon, jalapeño, haystack onions, lettuce, tomato and spicy Monterey jack”

Burger #15 – Fiery Smokehouse Cheddar Burger (Freeman’s)

Feeling the burger hunger once again, I decided that it was time for burger #15. The hunger hit as I was walking on Quinpool, so I decided to head into Freeman’s to try one of their burgers. Located at 6092 Quinpool Road, Freeman’s has become a pretty popular spot for both beer-drinkers and late night eaters. I had eaten here many times before, and also had food delivered for numerous late night meals (they deliver until 5 AM!). For this burger, I went with the Fiery Smokehouse Cheddar Burger.

Stats

From the menu: “Bold & spicy… topped with cheddar, hot peppers, bacon, lettuce, onion, tomato and our smokey BBQ-ranch sauce”

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.

Burger #5 brought me to the beautiful Auction House. Located at 1726 Argyle Street, The Auction House features both an extensive food and drink menu. With a very welcoming atmosphere, this restaurant makes way for both a relaxed and formal dining experience. For this burger, I decided to go with the Canadian Burger.

Burger #2 – Belfast Cheeseburger (The Old Triangle)

For Burger #2, I made my way to The Old Triangle. Found in downtown Halifax at 5136 Prince Street, The Old Triangle is a great place for either a cold beer or a tasty meal (or in my case, both). A large dining area and two separate bars allows for a large group of people to be accommodated at the same time. Living up to the ‘Irish Alehouse’ style, this place features a charming interior as well as some sort of live music each night. For this meal, I chose the only beef burger that they have on their menu, which is titled the Belfast Cheeseburger.

Stats

From the menu: “Hand made 6oz burger, char grilled with bacon, lettuce, onion, tomato, mayo, mustard and pickles, and your choice of cheese”
