Burger #60 – The Canteen Burger (The Canteen)

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!

Burger #33 – Old School (2 Doors Down)

One of the best things about trying all different kinds of burgers, is that I get to find places that become instant favourites. This is definitely the case with 2 Doors Down. Located at 1533 Barrington Street, 2 Doors Down has become one of the most talked about restaurants in the city. During Halifax Burger Week, they killed it with their Steakhouse Slider, and it became the burger of the week for not only myself, but many others. Having already reviewed their Smokehouse Burger, it was time to sink my teeth into the Old School Cheeseburger.

Burger #21 – Ranch House Burger (Mexicali Rosa’s)

First off, I just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone that has been reading my blog and relaying really nice messages to me about it. What started out as an excuse to eat a bunch of burgers has slowly become an exciting hobby for myself, and I’m glad you guys enjoy hearing what I have to say!

Now for the real reason you are here – Burger #21! I’m slowly making my way through the many burgers that Spring Garden has to offer, and this time it was Mexicali Rosa’s turn. Located at 5472 Spring Garden Road, Mexicali Rosa’s is known for their Mexican-inspired cuisine and delicious margarita options. They also have a few “North of the Border” options, which includes the Ranch House Burger.
