Happy Halifax Burger Week eve! Tomorrow the streets will be filled with burger-hungry Haligonians wandering from restaurant to restaurant in hopes of finding that next great burger.
You’ve got a lot of choices this year, so it’s time to take a look at another three that you should probably put to the test on your burger adventures over the next 7 days!
Get ready for the pre-Burger Week stomach growls as you learn all about the burgers from Primal, Harbour City Bar & Grill, and The Barrington Steakhouse!
If you missed the other instalments in the Preview Series, check out Part 1 and Part 2 for six other tasty burgs!
Halifax Burger Week is now over for another year, and the city is stuffed to the brim with the thousands of burgers that have been consumed. With beef, chicken, fish, veggie, sausage, lamb, boar, and even kangaroo available as options this year, the choices were abundant and I think it’s safe to say that Haligonians were very satisfied with the turnout!
Delicious sauces and pasta (both deep-fried and not) seemed to be some popular topping choices this year, and a lot of the 95+ restaurants really stepped up with some amazing, original burger compositions.
This was easily the hardest year I’ve had thus far trying to decide my favourite burgers of the week. I got to try 31 of the options this year (12 previews and 19 during the week) and I kept going back and changing my choices for both the Top 3 as well as the 10 Honourable Mentions. There were many burgers that got left off this list that I really enjoyed, but there just wasn’t enough spots for them all. Basically, what I’m trying to say is Halifax knocked it out of the park for Burger Week 2017!
Things have been a little quiet with Life of Burgers lately, due to being really busy over the last couple of months, but I figured it was time to get out and eat some more delicious food!
I’m a big fan of food festivals, and one of my favourites in the city is Halifax Sausage Fest! The week wrapped up recently, but I did manage to get out and try a handful of restaurants and their contributions to the event, and I was really impressed with the ones I got to chow down on!
Burger squirrels, burger cars, and burger heat. These were all things that could be found throughout Halifax during this year’s Burger Week. With a whopping 79 restaurants participating this year, the choices were endless for those looking for a good burger, and the list of restaurants that really stepped up is a long one!
While this year I didn’t tackle every burger like last year (burgers can get pricey when you don’t have that Ambassador title), I still had a pretty successful Burger Week. I got to interview this year’s Burger Ambassadors, which you can read here, and numerous restaurants let me come in for a sneak peek of their burger before the week even began!
This year I got to preview 13 burgers, and through Burger Week I ate another 22, making for 35 whole burgers that I got to try out. I was really amazed with all the delicious burgers that I ate this year, and picking my top choices was not an easy task. However, I have finally come to a decision on which ones, just narrowly, beat out the rest this year, in my opinion.
Here are my Top 3 burgers, as well as some honourable mentions, from Halifax Burger Week 2016!
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! In this part, I highlight three more burgers from Ardmore Tea Room, Primal Kitchen, and Fickle Frog!
