It’s been a while since I posted a straight-up burger review, which is due to being busy with other food-related adventures, like the Veggie Burger Series I have been putting out (which you can see here). If you’ve been missing the reviews, then you are in luck cause I’m back with a juicy profile of another local burger!
Across the harbour in Dartmouth, The Canteen is hugely popular at most times of the day, which is evident by the bustling dining area that always seems to be packed full of hungry mouths. I’ve been meaning to get in to try their burger for a while now, and it finally happened. Read on to learn all about the show-stopping Canteen Burger!
From the menu: “Two all beef patties, melted harvarti, special sauce, lettuce, pickles, frizzled onions on our sesame bun”
Back in 2011, PEI Burger Love was created, and while it started out small (only 14 restaurants participated in the first year), Burger Love has turned into a huge event across the Island, and this year there is a whopping 73 burgers to try out!
Prince Edward Island is where I’m originally from, and given my love for burgers it might surprise you to hear that I have never participated in the event before…until now. A week or so ago I found myself back home for a VERY short visit, and I knew I couldn’t leave without tasting as many burger as I could get to.
I have to give a big applause to the Island for really stepping up and showing how delicious Island beef can be. I managed to get to 6 different places during my visit, and it was a damn good time!
“7oz Island beef patty, 4 strips of candied bacon, gouda blend cheese, butterleaf lettuce, onion rings tossed in Frank’s Hot Powder, and house-made ‘The Brick’ sauce on a toasted herb cheesy bun, garnished with onion rings and dill pickle”
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.
From the menu: “Ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles, fried mushrooms, fried onions (I also splurged and added cheese and bacon)”
